The Manhasset Indians defeated the Carey Seahawks 12-2 in lacrosse on Tuesday afternoon, led by Steven Schneider’s four goals.
John Psyllos recorded a hat trick and an assist while Louis Perfetto scored twice and added an assist for Manhasset.

Manhasset head coach Keith Cromwell said it was great to get a conference win and the Indians’ quick start allowed them to capitalize on early opportunities.
“They gave us a different look with a little zone defense but I thought our guys responded well and got the ball popping,” Cromwell said. “We are always preaching come out early after the opening whistle. Our guys did a good job of understanding that and being prepared.”
In the first quarter, Manhasset outscored Carey 4-0.
Psyllos paced Manhasset’s attack with a goal and an assist.
Schneider gave Manhasset a 1-0 lead 44 seconds into the game.
Luke Postiglione scored with 9:22 left in the first quarter off a feed from Psyllos to give Manhasset a 2-0 lead.
With 6:12 remaining in the first quarter, Psyllos gave Manhasset a three-goal lead off a feed from Kevin Mack.

Schneider’s fourth goal of the game gave Manhasset a seven-goal lead 45 seconds into the third quarter.
