The battle for Catholic school supremacy on Long Island has annually been a two-horse race between national powers St. Anthony’s and Chaminade.
This season is no different.
What’s also been an annual ritual is the teams meeting not once, but often three times, with the last meeting, of course, for the championship.
Round 1 is today as the teams meet at 4:15 p.m. at Chaminade. Round 2 will be May 13 at St. Anthony’s. What happens after that is still to be determined, but we have a pretty good feeling as you undoubtedly do as well.
Other Long Island games today include East Islip at Floyd (4 p.m.), Whitman at Northport (4 p.m.), Sachem East at Ward Melville (4:15 p.m.), Patchogue-Medford at West Islip (4:30 p.m.), Hempstead at Baldwin (4:30 p.m.), Freeport at Syosset (4:30 p.m.), North Shore at Manhasset (4:30 p.m.), Copiague at Sachem North (5 p.m.) and Half Hollow Hills East at Smithtown West (6 p.m.).
It didn’t take John Wiseman long to re-establish a winning attitude at Wilton.
The 1986 Wilton graduate, who was a four-year starter at Duke, enjoyed a successful debut season as coach last year that included a big win over Yorktown.
Now, Scott Bulkley is charged with a similar task at Greenwich.
Bulkley, who helped Darien win five straight state titles as an assistant coach, is the new coach of the Cardinals.
If Greenwich can get a win today against Wilton, it will go a long way toward returning the Cardinals to conference contenders. The game is 4:30 p.m. at Greenwich.
Elsewhere in Connecticut today, New Canaan visits St. Joseph (4 p.m.), Newtown is at Joel Barlow (4 p.m.), Ridgefield hosts Stamford (6:30 p.m.), Daniel Hand hosts Fairfield Prep (7 p.m.), Trinity Catholic is at Fairfield Ludlowe (7 p.m.) and Fairfield Warde visits Brien McMahon (7:15 p.m.).
In the Hudson Valley,John Jay and Rye, who have each won four sectional titles the last five years, meet at 5 p.m. at Rye. In 2008, Rye snapped John Jay’s 47-game win streak against Section 1 opponents.
Mahopac, fresh off its big 11-9 win at Somers, visits Hen Hud at 4:30 p.m. Somers looks to bounce back with the first of two regular-season games at Horace Greeley at 4:30 p.m.
In other 4:30 p.m. action, Iona Prep hosts Monsignor Farrell, Westlake visits Fox Lane, North Salem hosts Haldane, Arlington is at Peekskill, Brewster plays at Pleasantville and John F. Kennedy Catholic visits Wappingers.
