BREWSTER, N.Y. -- The top-seeded Lakeland High field hockey team won the Section 1, Class B championship Tuesday evening, turning back No. 2 Rye, 4-1, in a game played at Brewster High School.
Rye, which also lost to Lakeland in last year's final in double-OT, ends its season at 18-1-1.
The Hornets got four goals in the first half from an angry Dana Bozek, who didn't appreciate being slammed to the ground on a corner, and made Rye pay.
Lakeland, which has won the last six state championships, and has nine overall, improved to 19-0 with the win, and moves on to regional play. The Hornets were set to face Section 4's Vestal Saturday at 3 p.m. at Valhalla High School.
