Two No. 1 seeds (Garden City in Class B and Manhasset in Class C) are alive and well as we get set for today’s Nassau County finals.
But we do have one casualty. And it’s a big one.
In Class A, Farmingdale was ousted in the semifinals, falling 7-6 to upstart Baldwin.
Baldwin, the No. 5 seed, now hopes to complete and unlikely postseason run by beating Hicksville in today’s Section 8 championship game at Hofstra University in Hempstead.
The Bruins (13-5) are a fun team to watch, with a high-octane offense led by the Ohio State-bound Dominique Alexander and Kyle Rebman.
Here’s a look at today’s slate:
Section 8 (Nassau) finals: Wednesday (at Hofstra):
Hicksville 7, Baldwin 6
Prediction: Hicksville 7, Baldwin 6
No. 1 Garden City vs. No. 3 Lynbrook, 8:30 p.m.
Prediction: Lynbrook 8, Garden City 6
Manhasset 7, Cold Spring Harbor 5
Prediction: Manhasset 9, Cold Spring Harbor 5
