Johns Hopkins University-bound senior midfielder Tommy Gordon and Garden City will play Round 2 against archrival Manhasset at 6 p.m. today at Hofstra University’s Shuart Stadium in the Nassau County Class B title game.
Ever since we passed along the news last fall that Manhasset, the two-time defending Class C state champions, would be moving up to Class B this season, we started referring to this year’s 120th Woodstick Classic as “Round 1.”
That’s because a second meeting, for the Nassau County Class B title, seemed almost ordained and inevitable.
Well, here we are, more than a half year later, and that meeting is tonight.
It’s Garden City vs. Manhasset for the Section 8 Class B crown at 6 p.m. at Hofstra University.
The winner advances to the Long Island championship game on Saturday at Stony Brook University, with a berth in the June 8 downstate semifinals on the line.
The Set-GC rematch is the subject of our latest poll question.
