    I’ve for Rye scrimmaging PAC today at 2:30 and note you mentioning IP vs PAC at 4:30??

    • says:

      Both scrimmages are at Mahopac – Rye vs. ‘Pac at 2:30, followed by Iona Prep-‘Pac at 4:30 p.m.

      • Red/Blue says:

        Greenwich topped Brunswick. CT public school teams only started practice last Mon. Brunswick had a 3 week head-start including a spring-break trip to Florida. Standard Brunswick team – older, mature kids (kids are held-back upon entering the school) with plenty of depth. Greenwich was impressive – Foote (Loyola) and Moeser (Hofstra) clearly among the top mids in the tri-state. Greenwich goalie (don’t know name) was solid.

      slacrosse, any color on the Rye PAC scrimmage from yesterday?

      • slacrosse says:

        Pretty close play all around with not a lot of scoring. Pac had another srimmage with IP following so substituted freely. I know Rye looked better then their previous scrimmage as they had 2 of 3 of their missing starters back. But still work to do. PAC looked good and in particular their attack #33 and LSM 17 stood out to me.

  3. Upstate says:

    Webster Thomas 9, Penfield 7 (final)

  4. The Rock says:

    North Rockland over Pine Bush 12-3!

    Michella has 8 assists for NR. Senatore 4gs

    • Sports Guy says:

      thats a nice rebound effort for North Rockland after getting crushed by Byram Hills over the weekend in a scrimmage.

  5. Sec1 says:

    Final – Pearl River 9 Westlake 6
