* High School Scoreboard Central, Friday, 4/11: Smithtown East edges defending NY state champ Ward Melville; West Islip wins in OT

A marquee CT vs. NY matchup at a neutral site — and state — highlights a stacked Saturday of varsity action.

LL2014COLLEGEGAMEDAYTwo-time FCIAC (CT) champion New Canaan (1-0) plays St. Anthony’s, winner of four CHSAA (NY) AAA titles the last five years, at Princeton University in New Jersey, the alma mater of second-year New Canaan coach Chip Buzzeo. Game-time is 9:30 a.m. St. A’s (3-2) has won three straight since opening the season with losses to Loyola-Blakefield (Md.) and Immaculata (NJ).

Also of note, two of the tristate’s premier programs, Manhasset and unbeaten Chaminade (4-0), renew their “Reg’s Rock” rivalry game in a 7:30 p.m. game at ‘Set (3-2).

Other matchups at the event are Chatham (NJ) vs. Salesianum (DE) and Salisbury School (CT) vs. Penn Charter (PA) — both at 10 a.m., Haverford School (PA) vs. La Costa Canyon (CA) and St Augustine Prep (NJ) vs. Brunswick School (CT) at 2 p.m.

In another clash of titans, Niskayuna (NY) plays at Darien (CT) at 3 p.m.

One game few may have marked on the calendar prior to the season is now one of the biggest on Long Island so far in 2014 as a pair of neighboring 5-1 teams meet: Locust Valley and defending Nassau Class C champion Friends. Game-time is 7 p.m. at Centre Island Turf Field.
