Before we get to today’s high school action in the nation’s No. 1 hotbed for lacrosse, the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut tristate area, we have a quick college update.

NCAA Tournament selections were announced yesterday.

Here’s the rundown:

Division I men’s

Division II men’s

Division III men’s

Division I women’s

Division II women’s

Division III women’s

Now, before we begin previewing today’s high school schedule, here’s a quick look back at last week.

And what a week it was.

Among the highlights: Fairfield Prep dealt previously unbeaten Chaminade its first loss of the season in arguably the biggest upset of the season in the tristate; Darien picked up another statement win against a Long Island power by edging St. Anthony’s; and, as expected, Garden City won the 121st Woodstick Classic.

As we preview today’s matchups, we take a look back to Saturday.

Fairfield Prep, fresh off the win over Chaminade, returns to action with a 4:30 p.m. game against Greenwich at Fairfield University’s Alumni Field.

Also of note, Wilton hosts Fairfield Warde in a 4:30 p.m. game at Fujitani Field.

After an 11-0 start, Dobbs Ferry was handed a loss for the first time this season, falling 6-4 to Pelham (11-1). Today, Dobbs faces another stern test when it plays at Edgemont (9-4) at 4:30 p.m.

Pelham, meanwhile, also has a huge test of its own when it takes on defending Section 1 Class C champion Bronxville (10-1) at 4:30 p.m. at Bronxville. Bronxville won Round 1 of the regular-season series against the Pelicans 10-4 on April 20.

In another interesting Section 1 encounter, Clarkstown South (9-3) visits Arlington (6-6) at 5:15 p.m.

Also in Section 1, Eastchester hosts Scarsdale at 4:30 p.m., Mamaroneck plays at New Rochelle at 4:30 p.m., and Yorktown looks to win its seventh straight when its hosts White Plains at 4:30 p.m.

In a Section 1 vs. Section 9 clash, Tappan Zee (6-5) hosts Monroe-Woodbury at 4:30 p.m.

It’s a light day on Long Island.

Garden City, fresh off the Woodstick win, plays at Calhoun and Huntington hosts Southampton at 4:30 p.m. and Half Hollow Hills East visits Sachem North at 5 p.m.

  22. Relax says:

    Too Much Hype around Pelham’s Win over Dobbs. Bville’s a Lock for Sect.1 C Champs. We’ll find Out More about the Bronco’s Chances in States when the “Not Enough Referees Game” vs Somers gets played in a week.

    • slacrosse says:

      Yeah, saw part of Bville/Pel–teams way far apart in all ways–except for Landis at LSM. Last possibilities against Bville are upset wins by Byram Hills or Putnam Valley.

    • BH Has a Shot Maybe?? says:

      Relax, I have to agree with your comment that Bronxville is the creme of Class C. And I agree that both Pelham and Dobbs Ferry are not serious contenders. I think the serious contender to Bronxville is Byram. Byram plays most of their games against fairly strong competition( i.e. mostly Class B and strong out of state teams-Kinnelon and Weston) which should help when playing the likes of Bronxville. It would be a huge upset but one that could happen. So let’s get through this week and let the playoffs begin next week.

      • slacrosse says:

        Would not consider it a “huge” upset if BH beat Bville.

      • Relax says:

        Anybody beating Bville in C would be a Major Upset. In line with L/P losing in A & ‘town losing in B, but Bville losing in C at this point would be a bigger upset then both. Something tells me PV is the 2nd best team, but they’re not gonna beat Bville. Of course anything can happen if Bville doesn’t show-up for a playoff game.

        • Wizard2 says:

          PV is very young 2 soph & Jr at attack. Same on Defense. They’ll have to grow up quickly.

          • bville is young says:

            bville starting attack- freshman a soph and jr.
            middies sr. jr. soph
            LSM soph.
            defense sr, jr Freshman

            I dont think many people counted on bville being a good team this year after losing 2 AA last year. With only graduating 4 seniors this year. i think Bville will be good for next few years!!! Good job on the coaches for building a strong foundation there!
