County teams will open the 2A-1A North Re­gion Sec­tion II Girls’ Lacrosse Tour­na­ment against fa­mil­iar op­po­nents this af­ter­noon.

Top-seeded Per­ryville hosts fourth-seeded Bo­hemia Manor at 5 p.m. and sec­ond-seed North East hosts Elkton, the three seed, at 4 p.m. Both games are the third meet­ings be­tween county ri­vals.

The Pan­thers lost a sin­gle game in the reg­u­lar sea- son and went un­beaten in Susque­hanna play to win the lower-di­vi­sion cham­pi­onship be­hind the lead­er­ship of a trio of Sal­is­bury com­mits—se­niors Ally Remesch and Tay­lor Poore and ju­nior Syd­nie Bjork.

Per­ryville de­feated the Ea­gles twice in the reg­u­lar sea­son, by scores of 18-3 and 18-2.

The Pan­thers aim to reach the re­gional fi­nal for a third­straight sea­son, where they fell to Queen Anne’s each of the past two years. For­tu­nately, Queen Anne’s is no longer in the re­gion. Un­for­tu­nately, Fall­ston is.

North East also won each of its two reg­u­lar-sea­son meet­ings with Elkton, but by much slim­mer of mar­gins. The In­di­ans won by fi­nal scores of 16-13 and 14- 12.

The two fin­ished with match­ing 4-3 records in the Susque­hanna Di­vi­sion, but North East earned the higher seed and home-field ad­van­tage with one more over­all win than the Golden Elks.

Ris­ing Sun boys’ lax ready for play­offs af­ter two-week break

The Ris­ing Sun boys’ lacrosse team ac­com­plished its goal of sweep­ing its county op­po­nents.

Now, the experienced Tigers squad will see what new goals they can ac­com­plish.

Ris­ing Sun earned the top seed and a first-round bye in the 3A-2A North Re­gion Sec­tion II Tour­na­ment with a 10-2 over­all record. The Tigers came within a game of the Susque­hanna Di­vi­sion ti­tle.

Their op­po­nent, fourth­seeded East­ern Tech­ni­cal, ad­vanced with a 9-7 win over Aberdeen on Wed­nes­day. Com­par­a­tively, Ris­ing Sun dom­i­nated the Ea­gles, 17-0, on April 22.

East­ern Tech­ni­cal also fell to Har­ford Tech 13-5. The Co­bras handed Ris­ing Sun its lone lower-di­vi­sion loss, 10-8, on April 27.

The Har­ford Tech loss snapped a six-game win­ning streak for the Tigers. They bounced back to han­dle Jop­pa­towne 19-4 the fol­low­ing day, but have not played since. The post­sea­son opener is Ris­ing Sun’s first game in more than two weeks.
