Going out on a limb:
Suffern is going to bounce back from Saturday’s horrific display. Somers takes them lightly and has a letdown after emotional L/P game.
Suffern will have to generate somne offense if its is going to beat Somers.Their defense held fox lane to 4 goals and if you hold any team to 4 goal you should win however you need to score more than 3 to win. I doubt they will hold Somers to 4 goals even as good as they are playing they will need some help from the offense to pul off the upset
Here’s our first score update of the day. Darien leads St. Joseph 7-0 after one quarter.
Darien leads 9-1 at the half.
Darien leads 13-1 after three.
Final: Darien 14, St. Joseph 1
Note: Hofstra-bound defenseman Corey Caputo suffered a hamstring injury. His status is day to day heading into Thursday’s showdown at Ridgefield.
