It was a wet — and interesting Monday — throughout the region.
In the Hudson Valley, Yorktown seems to have hit its stride heading into games against unbeaten Arlington and Lakeland/Panas in the Murphy Cup later this week. The Huskers, coming off an impressive 11-9 win over Chaminade, pulled away for a 13-7 win at Somers, Yorktown’s third straight against the Tuskers.
In action involving Long Island and Connecticut squads, Garden City overcame an early deficit to overtake New Canaan 5-4. And East Hampton suffered its first loss after a 9-9 start, falling 10-9 to a Hauppauge team that has lost just once (to Comsewogue).
It was an unusually eventful Monday and the start of what promises to be a week that has a noteworthy ending with rivalry games Manhasset-Garden City, Yorktown-Lakeland/Panas and New Canaan/Darien all set for Saturday.
Now, to today. In perhaps the marquee matchup of the day, a pair of 9-1 teams battle it out in Suffolk as West Islip, which has not lost since falling to Sachem North in its opener, hosts Connetquot at 4:30 p.m. Connetquot’s lone loss was to a Ward Melville team that will host Smithtown West today at 4:15 p.m. minus 15 players who have been suspended for the game for undisclosed disciplinary reasons, according to Newsday.
