A week from today, the selections and seedings for the 2010 Section 1 tournament will be made.
But we have some crucial games between now and then that will have a big bearing on what happens at that May 20 meeting.
Case in point tonight as Lakeland/Panas (12-3) hosts Mahopac (9-4) at 7 p.m. at Lakeland High School.
But that’s not the only big rivalry game tonight. Chaminade and St. Anthony’s will be meeting at 6:30 p.m., with the game at St. Anthony’s.
Before we get to today’s action in depth, a quick note about last night. White Plains’ Ryan McGee set the school season record for points in a season and assists in a season in the Tigers’ 15-6 win over Eastchester yesterday. The old record for points in a season was held by Connor Gilmartin (2006) with 69 points and Connor Gilmartin (2005 and ’06) with 28 assists. McGee is bound for St. Joseph’s (Pa.).
Lakeland/Panas enters tonight’s game vs. the ‘Pac with a four-game win streak, including a 10-7 win against Yorktown in the Murphy Cup game. Mahopac had a four-game win streak of its own before falling to Guilderland 8-6. The Indians then defeated Wappingers 16-1.
Chaminade (10-3) defeated St. Anthony’s 14-8 on April 13. So tonight’s game is Round 2 of possible three rounds. (The third meeting, of course, would be for the CHSAA title.)
Darien, the five-time Connecticut Class M state champion, visits defending Class S state champ St. Joseph-Trumbull to headline today’s Connecticut slate along with a 6 p.m. showdown between Ridgefield (10-2) and Wilton (8-4) at Wilton’s Fujitani Field.
