Niskayuna’s 13th appearance in the boys’ state lacrosse tournament ended Wednesday when Massapequa downed the Silver Warriors, 23-9, in a Class A semifinal game at Hofstra University.

Niskayuna dipped to 2-5 in state semifinals (all against Long Island opponents), and Wednesday marked its third state semifinal loss in as many years.

Niskayuna finished 19-2, having won Suburban Council North Division, Section II and regional championships before Wednesday’s setback against the Chiefs (Section VIII, 18-2). Niskayuna had climbed to a No. 1 rank in New York by the state sportswriters’ association.
