Both Somers and Ward Melville stated their case during the regular season.
That’s when the Tuskers beat John Jay for the first time since 2003 and the Patriots, who earlier in the season knocked Yorktown from the unbeaten ranks, did the same to West Islip on May 4.
Now, Somers is preparing to meet John Jay again and Ward Melville is set to square off one more time against West Islip.
Only now, the stakes are much higher.
I’ll be on hand at White Plains for the Section1 finals and Chris Kieser will be reporting from Stony Brook University, the site of the Section 11 finals.
