Sophomore attackman Jack Grass scored four goals on Saturday as Bronxville started the season in impressive fashion, winning 9-1 at Fox Lane.
It’s become an annual routine.
CHSAA play twice during the regular season (usually splitting those two games), with the rubber match in the postseason for the championship.
Will this year follow that familiar scenario?
We’ll have a better idea after “Round 1” is completed today as Chaminade hosts the Friars.
Two other Catholic programs – Fordham Prep and Iona Prep – will also be playing their own “Rund 1” of an intense CHSAA rivalry.
Also of note today, John Jay, coming off a 12-7 season-opening loss to Yorktown, will try to grit out a win today at Rye. Both teams are banged up, so expect a lower scorer affair than normal.
