This is Lew Janavey’s first go-round as a head varsity coach.
But prior to his arrival at Somers this season, he made a name for his self after serving for years as an assistant coach for Lakeland and then Lakeland/Panas under Frank Vitolo and Tim Weir.
Tonight, Janavey takes his Somers team to Panas where it will face Lakeland/Panas in a 7 p..m. game. (Note: It had originally been scheduled for 7:30 p.m.)
Also under the lights, John Jay and Mahopac will meet at 7 p.m. in Cross River in another key clash of sectional title contenders.
There are some big ones on Long Island, too.
Ward Melville, coming off a huge upset of previously unbeaten West Islip, faces Sachem North (9-3) at 4:30 p.m. at Ward Melville.
Oceanside, which is off to an 8-4 start, visits 2008 Class A state finalist Syosset at 4:30 p.m.
In Fairfield, Darien visits New Canaan in a 4 p.m. contest at Dunning Stadium in New Canaan.
