St. Joseph’s of Trumbull, which has emerged as one of Connecticut’s top programs the last few years, visits New Canaan at 4 p.m. today at Dunning Stadium.
Let’s play two at Shea.
No, we’re not talking about baseball and the Mets’ old ballpark, folks.
We’re talking about West Point.
As in Shea Stadium at the U.S. Military Academy.
That’s where there will be a doubleheader today, starting at 10 a.m., when Cold Spring Harbor takes on Somers. At noon, Lakeland/Panas faces Carthage. Coincidentally, Carthage is coming off a 14-11 loss to Somers.
In an interesting inter-sectional battle, Suffern, which is 6-1 with the only loss a one-goal affair to defending Section 1 Class A champ Lakeland/Panas, hosts Christian Brothers Academy of Albany, which is 5-1, at 11:30 p.m. at Suffern Middle School.
Meanwhile, on Long Island, we could be seeing a preview of the Nassau Class B title game as Garden City hosts Wantagh at 11 a.m.
In Connecticut, both defending FCIAC champ Greenwich and Wilton are off to 2-2 starts. The teams square off tonight at 7 p.m. at Wilton’s Fujitani Field off Route 7 in what promises to be a heated battle.
Before we get to the rundown of today’s schedule, we have a couple of quick notes.
First, the Somers-Yorktown game on Tuesday, May 3 will be played for a special cause, the Stephanie Crispinelli Humanitarian Fund, honoring the Somers grad and student at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla., who died during the Haiti Earthquake. For more, click here.
Also, several standouts from the nation’s No. 1 hotbed for lax, the Hudson Valley/Long Island/Connecticut region, were among the “Final 25” nominees for college lax’s most prestigious award, the Tewaaraton Trophy. For the complete list, click here.
And finally, as far as yesterday’s action is concerned, Darien’s 9-6 win over Yorktown highlighted the discussion here. With six straight state titles for Darien and six state titles in school history for Yorktown, they are two of the most followed programs in the region. Perhaps as a result, yesterday’s “Gameday” thread elicited more than 100 comments as we prepare this posting. You can check out the post-game reaction by clicking here.
