We’ve got perfect weather for a showdown between Somers and John Jay, so there should be at least 1,000 people in the stands. There are three big ticket games every season and this is one of them. If you have to ask what the other two are, you’re new to lacrosse in this neck of the woods. I’m going to figure out something to get updates on Twitter despite less than ideal cellular service.
I’m going to be keeping an eye on a couple of games elsewhere. Scarsdale is going to be improving game-to-game, so it will be interesting to see whether the Raiders can run Pelham around. Brewster is due for a win, but Greeley is off to a good start, so there should be plenty of drama there. Pleasantville is playing a really ambitious schedule with a young team and that usually pays dividends somewhere down the road. I doubt it will be today against Rye, but I suppose there’s an outside chance.
Don’t forget to leave a score if you’re out watching today. Please and thank you.
