ESPNHS takes a look at big game results from the POWERADE FAB 50 each week. Updated daily as necessary, we will track FAB 50 upsets, outstanding performances and news that is expected to impact the rankings.
Boys FAB 50
April 7: No. 26 Niskayuna def. No. 5 Jamesville-DeWitt (DeWitt, N.Y.), 17-10
Niskayuna ended Jamesville’s 46-game winning streak, which was the longest in the nation for boys' lacrosse. According to Syracuse.com, Jamesville fought back to tie the game 3-3 after the first quarter, but Niskayuna scored the next four goals to take a lead they never relinquished. The longest active winning streak belongs to Lambert (Suwanee, Ga.) who has won 32 in a row.
April 5: FAB 50 voters will have a lot to consider next week, including a new team at the top. No. 1 St. Anthony’s (South Huntington, N.Y.) loss to No. 6 Chaminade (Mineola, N.Y.) Thursday will give No. 2 Conestoga (Berwyn, Pa.) it’s shot at the No. 1 ranking. It will be the third team to be voted No. 1 this season. Also on Thursday, Bullis (Potomac, Md.) defeated No. 29 Landon (Bethesda, Md.). The loss is Landon’s third straight.
Girls FAB 50
April 5: It was a rough day to be the higher ranked team. No. 14 Manhasset (N.Y.), No. 18 Mendham (N.J.) and unranked Summit (N.J.) all defeated teams that were ranked ahead of them in the Top 25. Summit’s win will shake up the FAB 50 the most next week while Manhasset and Mendham’s victories were repeat conclusions of the same matchups last season, which made them less of a surprise.
April 4: Wantagh (N.Y.) def. No. 14 Manhasset (N.Y.), 12-11
Cassidy Meaney scored the winning goal with 1:06 left in the game to help Wantagh complete its come-from-behind victory over Manhasset. Wantagh trailed 11-10 with four minutes remaining. Goalie Sophia Gambitsky recorded seven saves in the win. Manhasset will likely drop in the rankings next week, but a win against No. 3 Notre Dame Prep (Baltimore) Thursday could slow the fall.
April 2: No. 23 Milton (Ga.) def. Archbishop Carroll (Wayne, Pa.), 19-18
Milton went up by eight in the first half, but Archbishop Carroll fought back to tie the game at 16. Lydia Cassada scored five goals and Molly Garrigan scored four goals to help Milton win two of its three games on the road in Florida. The Lady Eagles traveled 400 miles and 10 hours to St. Petersburg to play Mount St. Joseph (Philadelphia, Pa.), No. 11 Vero Beach (Fla.) and Archbishop Carroll.
April 2: Lincoln-Sudbury (Sudbury, Mass.) def. No. 30 Westwood (Mass.), 13-12
ESPNBoston.com has a complete recap of the game in which ESPNHS 100 athlete Madison Acton scored six goals for Lincoln-Sudbury. The loss ends Westwood’s 25-game unbeaten streak and it’s 12-game winning streak and it is the first regular season loss since 2009. The only blemish on Westwood’s record last season was a 15-15 tie to Longmeadow. Its last regular season loss was to Longmeadow on May 5, 2009.
April 2: Cicero-North Syracuse (Cicero, N.Y.) def. No. 33 Carthage (N.Y.), 12-8
Caitlyn Hamilton totaled four points (three goals, one assist) and Tiffany Ryan scored four goals in helping Cicero-North overcome a 4-3 deficit at halftime. Cicero outscored Carthage 9-4 in the second half to capture the win. The loss, combined with Carthage’s loss to Liverpool last week, is likely to drop them from the FAB 50 when the new rankings are released Tuesday.
