A couple of thoughts … Shoreham-Wading River did a super job on defense, coming out in a zone and forcing Bronxville to slow down and take a look. … Dylan Bates, a long pole, did a great job of locking off Jack Grass. … Turnovers were a problem. When the Broncos attempted to dodge inside, the defense stepped up and sealed off the interior. … Eric Pass might’ve played his best game of the season, and gave Bronxville a reason to believe in the first half. … For some reason, the intensity fell in a hurry after the Wildcats got a couple of early goals after the break. … Credit goes to SWR, a much quicker and much deeper team.
