April went out kicking and screaming, with an array of postponements caused by heavy rain in the nation’s No. 1 hotspot for lacrosse, the NY/NJ/CT tristate region.
Now, May gets under way with some mega matchups.
We begin — where else? — in the epicenter of the hotspot, Long Island.
It will be the Battle of Smithtown as East meets West. For the second straight year, the meeting between intra-district Suffolk (NY) rivals Smithtown West and Smithtown East will be played on the home turf of the East-side Bulls in a much-awaited 4:30 p.m. affair.
Smithtown West enters the game unbeaten and as the No. 1-ranked team in the tristate. Smithtown East, ranked No. 12, has just two losses — in Game 1 to Rocky Point and last week to Sachem North, snapping an eight-game win streak.
Also in Suffolk, the Ward Melville/Sachem North game that had been scheduled for Wednesday, but was postponed because of heavy rain, will now be played today at 6 p.m. at Sachem North.
Two of the top title contenders in the FCIAC meet in a 5 p.m. game at Greenwich as the Cardinals host New Canaan.
Two other tristate premier programs square off under the lights as Ridgefield (CT) hosts Yorktown (NY) in a 7 p.m. game at Tiger Hollow Stadium.
After a one-sided loss to Chaminade earlier this season, Fordham Prep hopes to have a better fate when it faces St. Anthony’s.
Iona Prep of the CHSAA, meanwhile, will try to pick up another win against a Section 1 (NY) power. The Gaels, who beat Somers 9-4 in opening week, host John Jay.

Putnam Valley (NY) at Arlington (NY)
Miller Place (NY) at Bellport (NY)
St. John the Baptist (NY) at Chaminade (NY)
