Week three of the LILJ High School Winter League marked the final week of the regular season before the playoffs begin after the holidays. Some of these games had implications as to where certain teams would finish in the standings. Here’s a recap of each of the final regular season games!
The last week of the regular season came to an end on Sunday, December 19th. Once again there was some great action out on the field and each week every team in the league has gotten better which is what’s most important in the winter league. Here’s how the final slate of regular season games went down.
Week two of the boys league was a combination of games that were close and down to the wire, and some where teams got easy wins. There were still some great plays that were made in each of the games that took place. Here’s how each game in the league was decided.
The second week of the girls High School Winter League had some more great games. Out of the eight games four of them were decided by four goals or less, and one of them even ended on a game-winner in the final seconds! We also saw some incredible plays being made by some players who recently committed to schools, and some stud players take the turf for the first time after missing the first week of games. Here’s how each of the games were decided in week two!
This weekend the Epoch game of the Week is on the boys side between Red & Black and Ward Melville’s varsity team at 3:15PM. Both teams are 2-0 on the season so this will be a battle of two undefeated teams. Each of them have the ability to score in waves so this should definitely be a high scoring game. Here’s how the seasons have gone for these two teams so far.
The inaugural boys LILJ Winter Box League ‘WBL’ was in action this past Saturday. There are four club teams competing in the LILJ Bantam Box League ‘BBL’ and four teams competing in the inaugural high school Winter Box League ‘WBL’. Syosset has an underclassman and an upperclassman team in the league. There is also a Jr. Riptide free agent team that is playing in the league, and a team made of players primarily from St. Anthony’s and Cold Spring Harbor called Bing Bong. A lot of goals were scored throughout the day so here’s how each of the games went down.
This past Saturday was the first week of the second annual girls LILJ Winer Box League ‘WBL.’ The girls bantam league ‘BBL’ is primarily made up of the 2026 and 2027 FLG & Blue Devil club lacrosse teams, as well as GC Tradition’s 2026/2027 team. The high school league has a total of 11 teams in the league, and six of them are high school teams. These teams include South Side, Garden City, Sacred Heart, Manhasset, Long Beach, and Syosset. The box league provides players with another outlet to get a stick in their hands throughout the winter and get the competitive juices flowing. It’s very fast paced and definitely more of an offensive league. There’s been some high scoring games this first week so let’s analyze each of the games.

The first week of the the LILJ High School Winter League was nothing short of epic. There were great games across the board, and some great individual performances throughout the day. In total there were eight games in the girls league, including the Epoch Game of the Week which featured St. Anthony’s and Comsewogue. After each game, The LILJ chose an Epoch player of the game from the winning team, sometimes more than one if there were multiple standout players. Overall, it was just great to see the players back out on the field having fun and getting the competitive juices flowing in preparation for the spring high school season. Here’s a deeper dive into each individual game.
