There were no upsets of note Wednesday, but plenty of interesting outcomes in the NY/NJ/CT tristate hotspot.
* Connetquot, the lone remaining unbeaten team in Suffolk County on Long Island and coming off a 6-11 season, upped its record to 12-0 with a 10-6 win over Sachem North. Connetquot plays Northport (12-1) Friday.
* Delbarton improved to 10-1 with an 11-6 win over Westfield (9-3) in New Jersey.
* Massapequa’s win streak is now 30 straight on Long Island. The Chiefs’ most recent win came against Farmingdale 11-6.
* Defending Suffolk (NY) Class A champ Smithtown East showed its offensive depth — and firepower — in a 14-7 win at Smithtown West. Four East-side Bulls — Sean Barry, Connor DeSimone, Dan Rooney and Brian Willetts — scored three goals as SE improved to 11-1.
* Greenwich squandered a three-goal second-half lead but came back to beat rival Staples 7-6 in overtime on a Scooter Harrington goal with 42 seconds left in OT. Will Perry had three goals for GHS.
Now, to today.
