The Susan Wagner girls’ lacrosse team remains unbeaten through seven games this season. The Falcons picked up two more wins last week — topping New Dorp (13-3) and Midwood (19-7).
It was a sister act for Wagner, which was led by twins Mikayla and Isabella Meagher, who mirrored one another with three goals apiece against ND on Thursday. Senior captain Jade Torres led the midfield and netted her first goal of the season.
Meanwhile, the Falcons’ second set of twins, sisters Mikalyn and Cierra Brown, teamed for 11 goals in Wednesday’s win over Midwood. Mikayla Meagher tallied four goals in the contest.
Arianna Soto recorded seven saves in net.
“Midwood played a high-paced game, but we have continued to play great on both sides of the ball,” noted coach Gary White. “The offense and midfield were clicking, and the defense, led by goalie Arianna Soto, was able to disrupt their offense and secure the win.”

The Falcons opened up a 25-0 lead at the half and never looked back. Melissa Rios fired four touchdowns and routinely connected with her stable of receivers on Friday.
Danielle Overton, Olivia Rijo and Sarah Colchamiro each eclipsed 50 yards receiving, with Rijo pulling in three touchdowns and Overton hauling in two scores. On the defensive side of the ball, Colchamiro returned an interception for a touchdown and Amanda Anderson tallied two picks.
Borough President Vito Fossella paid St. Joseph-by-the-Sea HS a visit last week to recognize the New York State Federation A girls’ championship winning team.
The Vikings finished the season with a 29-2 record, which also includes a borough crown and Archdiocesan title. Sea defeated Brooklyn Law and Tech, 80-73, in the state final.
Fossella presented certificates of achievement to members of the team, as well as to the school’s band for finishing first in the Metropolitan Division. Jaques Award winner Christian Greeley, who averaged 21.2 points per game for the boys’ team last season, was also a recipient.
Fossella, in addition, decreed March 31 to be known as “St. Joseph by-the-Sea Day” on Staten Island.
