It’s Showdown Saturday Eve, and there are actually a few more games on the slate today than you might think.
Before we get to today’s game, a quick note about tomorrow.
Tomorrows Yorktown-Darien game will be dedicated to memory of Tom L.
If you are a lacrosse player or coach in Yorktown or Darien, then you knew Tom Lener. Tom L., who died last November, attended hundreds of games each year high school, college, summer camps, you name it.
Though he himself never played or coached, he was as well-known in the area as many who did. I’m told the winning team will receive a trophy in Tom L’s name.
