We’re now just a day away from a special day of lacrosse throughout the region, folks.
It’s a day that’s not only special for the games that are being played, but the special causes those games are benefiting.
First off, at St. Anthony’s, there will be a marquee tripleheader featuring six of the top programs in the Hudson Valley/Long Island/Connecticut region.
The Lead the Way Lacrosse Day of Heroes features St. Anthonys vs. New Canaan in Game 1 at noon, followed by Chaminade vs. Yorktown in Game 2 at 2 p.m. and Manhasset vs. Darien in Game 3 at 4 p.m.
The event honors the memory of Jimmy Regan, a Manhasset native and former Chaminade and Duke star who served as a sergeant with the Army Ranger Regiment. He died on Feb. 9, 2007 after an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle while he was on combat patrol in northern Iraq.

Meanwhile, in Somers tomorrow, the Tuskers host Lakeland/Panas at 5:30 p.m.
Not only is the game a toss-up, but it features an added twist in that Somers second-year head coach Lew Janavey is a former longtime Lakeland/Panas assistant. Last year, the Tuskers pulled out a one-goal win over the Rebels.
But this year, it’s special for another reason.
It’s the inaugural “Communities Collide Benefiting Autism Speaks.” Autism Speaks is a group dedicated to raising awareness of Autism as well as funding research.
Just last week, Eastchester hosted a benefit for Autism Speaks in a home game against Sleepy Hollow.
There will be a 50-50, food and refreshment and T-shirts, all of which will benefit Autism Speaks.
In addition to the 5:30 p.m. varsity game, here’s a look at the schedule of events:
Now, to today’s relatively light schedule.
Garden City, which has made its way to the No. 8 spot in the latest Under Armour/Inside Lacrosse National Rankings, hosts Wantagh at 4:30 p.m.
But that’s not the only big game in Nassau. Keep an eye on the 4:15 p.m. contest between South Side and host Lynbrook.
The marquee game in Suffolk is a 4:30 p.m. contest between William Floyd and host West Islip. Also at 4:30 p.m., East Islip hosts Lindenhurst. At 4 p.m., Copiague is at Half Hollow Hills East. At 6 p.m., Bay Shore plays at Smithtown West’s turf field.
In the Hudson Valley, Hen Hud hosts Bronxville at 7 p.m. Albertus Magnus hosts Suffern, Pearl River plays at Clarkstown South and Clarkstown North is at Nyack at 4:15 p.m. At 4:30 p.m., Sleepy Hollow hosts Saunders, New Rochelle is at Edgemont, Mamaroneck visits Ardsley and Eastchester visits Hastings.
As always, be sure to post your thoughts and predictions on these matchups as well as any info on the scores and game details.
