The good thing about my editors turning me loose this year is the opportunity to see more teams beyond the usual needle movers. I can’t remember a Saturday where I covered two games south of I-287, but that’s what I did last week. Maybe it says something about the growth of the game.
With that in mind, I’m heading to Byram Hills this afternoon to watch the Bobcats go against Pleasantville. It should be interesting. We need to concoct a plan to hide a couple of Byram Hills students so the Bobcats can move back down to Class C and make things more fun.
There are some other noteworthy matchups.
Harrison (4-0) is quietly off to a great start and is opening a difficult stretch this evening at Greeley (0-3). Don’t read much into the previous wins and losses. The combined record of the teams the Quakers lost to is 9-2. We have to pay more attention to the Huskies if they win this one.
Lakeland/Panas is coming up to Brewster, which has to play a tight game in order to beat the defensive-minded Rebels. For the price of admission, you get to see perhaps the two best junior middies in Section 1 on the same field – Liam DaRos (Brewster) and Brian Prunty (L/P).
You can follow me @LoHudLacrosse for updates from the Byram Hills-Pleasantville game. And please, if you’re out watching, leave a score in the comments section or tweet updates to me and I’ll share them.
