As we noted here yesterday, a handful of Long Island teams played their openers last week.
Most, though, will be getting thing started this week. Many Section 1 and some Section 9 teams get things started next week, with most Connecticut and New Jersey squads getting going the week after that.
In boys action today, Mount Sinai hosts Longwood at 4 p.m., Wheatley plays at Valley Stream and Uniondale visits Clarke in 4:30 p.m. games.
Shoreham-Wading River, which has a preseason schedule as tough as anyone, has a scrimmage today at Ward Melville at 3:30 p.m.
Girls action includes seven games in Nassau County today, including a 4:15 game between Farmingdale and host Wantagh.
Sachem North, behind four goals by Eric Talbot, won 9-7 at Archbishop Spalding in Maryland on Friday.
Also on Friday, Eric Marzocca’s overtime goal gave North Babylon a 15-14 win over Half Hollow Hills West.
In games Saturday, defending Long Island Class C champ Bayport-Blue Point beat Bay Shore 13-8.
