Rattlers, RIT and Fairport protect home turf
Rochester was home to professional, collegiate and high school lacrosse Friday. In their MLL home opener, the Rattlers held on to beat Boston, 8-7. In the Liberty League tournament, No. 1 RIT used a powerful third quarter to distance itself from visiting St. Lawrence. And Fairport hosted an out-of-section foe and picked up the ever-elusive lacrosse shutout.
