It’s Week 1 of the regular season for many teams who didn’t get things started last week in the Hudson Valley/Long Island region. (Teams in Connecticut do not open up until a week from today.)
It should be a memorable opening week with some huge matchups scheduled for Saturday, including John Jay-Yorktown, Chaminade-West Islip and Somers-St. Anthony’s.
More on that as the week unfolds. But first, let’s take a look at what’s on tap for today.
Among the six games on tap involving Section 1 teams, Briarcliff visits Eastchester for a noon game that marks the debut of first-year Briarcliff coach Paul Bordonaro. The Bears played two scrimmages, losing to Lakeland/Panas 14-4 and beating Clarkstown North 5-3. Eastchester defeated Pearl River 12-6 in its season opener last week.
Hen Hud maintains its longtime rivalry with Wantagh with an 11 a.m. game at Wantagh.
Also in Nassau County today, Massapequa host Plainedge in a 4 p.m. game at the Field of Dreams on Sunrise Highway.
Cold Spring Harbor visits Pine Crest and Freeport plays at Long Beach at the Long Beach Rec Center, with both games at 11 a.m.
In Suffolk, Harborfields is at North Babylon for a 10 a.m. start and Cherry Creek visits Rocky Point at noon.
In scrimmage action, five-time Connecticut state champion Darien hosts John Jay, winners of four sectional titles in the last five years, in a 4:30 p.m. game.
As always, be sure to post your thoughts on these matchups as well as any info on the scores and game details.
