As far as early season Tuesdays go, it was a pretty eventful one, headline by Chaminade winning “Round 1” over rival St. Anthony’s 10-5 (photo from yesterday’s game above and article here).
Also yesterday, John Jay handled Rye 10-6; Fordham Prep stunned Iona Prep 10-9; West Islip beat Connetquot 8-7 in OT; and Mahopac beat Arlington 10-8.
To name just some of the interesting scores.
If the season is anything like Gameday Tuesday, 4/5 was, fasten your seatbelts, gang. We should be in for a wild ride.
Now, to what’s on the schedule for today.
Headlining the action is the start of the Connecticut public school schedule. There are several noteworthy games, including an intra-state contest between 2009 FCIAC champ Ridgefield and 2009 Section 1 Class B champ Somers, at Somers. The teams have split their meetings the last two years.
With the season in Connecticut now under way, be sure to exercise your right to vote in our latest poll question: “What do you think the outcome of the Darien-Greenwich game will be?”
That game is scheduled for this Saturday at 3 p.m. at Greenwich.
There are lots of interesting angles. Most notably, it’s a rematch of an FCIAC semifinal last year won by Greenwich 8-7. For more check out the LaxMagazine.com Northeast Region HS Network in which it’s been tabbed the “Game of the Week” by clicking here.
