A.J. Pesacov and the Arlington Admirals visit John Jay at 11 a.m. today.
Summit of New Jersey has the longest active win streak in the tristate area at 52 games. And counting. And for the second straight time, an FCIAC team will try to end it. The Hilltoppers host New Canaan at 2 p.m. at Investors Bank Field (26 Butlers Parkway) in Summit. Summit overtook Ridgefield 10-5 at home this past Saturday.
Speaking of the FCIAC, the team regarded as the favorite to win the conference, Darien, is back in action for the first time since falling to Haverford in the much-awaited showdown between the nation’s top two ranked teams.
The Blue Wave renew their annual rivalry with Yorktown today at 4:30 p.m. when they host the Huskers, who are coming off a tough loss themselves, 12-11 to Mahopac in double OT. Two of Darien’s main challengers — Greenwich and Wilton — are getting set for a big game tomorrow at Fujitani Field in Wilton.
That’s among the topics we discussed in our weekly tristate lax segment on MSG Varsity, Channel 14 (Optimum). We also unveil this week’s “Under the Radar” player and he’s from a Section 1 team, and take a look at how Johns Hopkins-bound Ryan Matthews of Manhasset was groomed to take over faceoff duties from Syracuse freshman Ricky Buhr. You can check it out by clicking here.
Also of note, John Jay hosts Arlington.
In Suffolk, rivals Mount Sinai and Shoreham-Wading River square off under the lights at Mount Sinai at 7:30 p.m.
In the prep-school ranks, Brunswick plays its first game since upsetting Salisbury (then ranked No.5 in the nation) when it faces unbeaten Gunnery. Salisbury hopes to bounce back when it plays at Westminster.
Before we get to today’s schedule, just a quick note that we will indeed be keeping an eye on the sky. There is a chance of severe thunderstorms in the region this afternoon. (Scroll down to the link for the most up-to-date weather forecast.)
