The Rocky Point Eagles boys lacrosse team, a Division II contender, tested themselves early against the Middle Country Mad Dogs, a Division I team, in a nonleague lacrosse matchup on their home turf March 19.

Rocky Point senior attackman Teddy Accardi and sophomore midfielder Matthew Sweeney both scored for the Eagles while senior Kyle Bonesteel dished up an assist.
