    10. Mamaroneck

    Outside Looking in – Rye, Byram Hills, RCDS and Hen Hud

    • section1lax says:

      the list looks good but i think somers should be a little higher and i really do think Mahopac will hold its own and beat l/p, and deff has a shot against jj and y-town. mahopacs roster is looking real good

      • upstate says:

        I would swap out Mamaroneck and put arlington in at 10. seriously! and byram is nowhere near the top ten.

        • SUlax says:

          I would agree with Arlington over Mamaroneck right now. I just think Arlington has already shown the ability to compete with top teams and i don’t think Mamaroneck has proven itself just yet. I think until proven otherwise the top 5 is on point. I think Somers is going to be a real tough out come playoff time with that schedule they have. Mahopac has a chance to solidify themselves near the top with games against Somers and Town this week.

      Too early but since you started it (sorry can’t do better then “group” in certain cases at this stage):

      LP/Pac/Somers/IP (no order)
      Rye (give them a “hall pass” at this point despite their 2 losses)/Suff/Hen Hud/Bville (wins over weak opponents)/PV/Arlinton (no order)

      Byram Hills, then Mamo.
      RCDS-why are they even listed? They only play Rye I think.

      Sorry-Very subjective and can’t do better then groupings in certain cases at this stage.

  3. Lax Dad says:

    agree with those rankings with the exception of RCDS on the outside looking in. Arlington is a much better candidate them then. It is very hard to gage RCDS against section 1 teams because of they rarely play public schools. even so, RCDS is an abysmal 0-6 vs Section 1 since 2005. Their competition is not on the same level as the top section 1 teams. If i had to rank them in section 1, I would put them in the late teens, early 20’s.

    On another note:
    I dont have a problem with Mamaroneck being in the top ten as of now. Only time will tell if they are the real deal or not.

    Gotta say: This Fox Lane Girl’s team is ridiculous. Catch one of their games when you can.

    • upstate says:

      Seen it and I agree. they put up points! the kid sammy jo (last name?) is on the u-19 national team and is only a junior. crazy.

      • slacrosse says:

        Saw them play Rye. Some excellent players. The girl you mentioned above won ALL but 1 of the FO’s!! hard to score too many goals when you don’t have the ball.
