The only thing I can say about Rye starting the season with a 1-5 record is hang in there. Does anybody remember what happened to Pelham in hockey after that team opened with six consecutive losses? I do not believe the Garnets are going to the state final four, but I guarantee the mistakes that are proving costly now will be corrected. … I’m pretty comfortable labeling Tappan Zee the second best team in Rockland at this point. I know the schools over there don’t like that designation, but Suffern is so far ahead of the field this season.

Game of the Day
Bronxville at Putnam Valley: It’s the biggest game of the season for Bronxville, which is looking to unseat a team that has won consecutive Section 1 titles in Class C/D. The Tigers are very young and may not be at full strength today. The Broncos are now the deepest team among the small schools and have incredible balance. Prediction: You have to check the LoHud Lacrosse Twitter page for my pick.
Keep an eye on Lakeland/Panas this week. A tough stretch begins with a visit from Penn Yan, a top Class C/D program with a 5-1 record. That one loss came against Carthage, which is going to play the Rebels on Thursday at West Point. A game against Shenendehowa on Saturday concludes the run. … Fordham Prep is going to learn a lot about itself with Chaminade today and St. Anthony’s on Saturday. … Carthage (6-1) is playing Somers today at West Point and has beaten its last six opponents by a 105-34 margin. The Comets opened the season with an 8-5 loss to West Genesee.
Please leave a score if you’re out watching games today. I’m pulling on the rain gear and going to Putnam Valley. I will post scoring updates on the LoHud Lacrosse Twitter page.
