It be will a day of some noteworthy firsts.
Perennial New York state title contender Yorktown will play its first game on its new turf field with a 4:30 p.m. game against Putnam Valley, which happens to be coached by one of the top defenders in school history, former YHS and Johns Hopkins All-American Brian Kuczma.
Former Lakeland (N.Y.) High School and Syracuse University star Ric Beardsley will make his debut as head coach at Christian Brothers Academy with a game against LaFayette. (With snow in the forecast, the game’s status is in doubt, however.)
Defending New York Class C state champion Shoreham-Wading River looks to improve to 2-0 when it visits Babylon.
Another defending state champ, Garden City, will be eager to bounce back from seeing its 24-game win streak end in a loss Saturday to La Salle when it hosts Carey at 4:30 p.m.
Two-time Section 1 Class B finalist John Jay also looks to rebound. The Indians, who lost to Yorktown on Saturday night, host Horace Greeley at 5 p.m.
In other games of note, Somers (N.Y.), fresh off a season-opening win against Putnam Valley, visits defending CHSAA Division AA champion Iona Prep at 5:30 p.m. (Note the change in start time.)
