Senior midfielder Bob Ciotti and St. Joseph’s-Trumbull, a Class S state finalist, visit defending FCIAC champion Greenwich today.

Before we get to today, a quick word about last night.

Ridgefield, coached by arguably the best player in Yorktown High School history, Roy Colsey, picked up a 14-8 win against the Huskers.

It was a huge win for the Tigers on many fronts.

For starters, it shows they have the right stuff to contend for the FCIAC title.

After all, FCIAC favorite Darien beat Yorktown by a three-goal margin — compared to Ridgefield’s five goals.

Sure, that’s hardly scientific — or even overly accurate as a barometer.

But more than anything, the win should serve as a big confidence boost for a Ridgefield team that has made the FCIAC finals two of the last three years, winning it in 2009.

For Colsey’s reaction on beating his alma mater, and completing a “trifecta” against Section 1 teams this season (with wins over Somers and John Jay as well), click here.

Now, to today.

The traditional best-of-three series between CHSAA rivals Chaminade and St. Anthony’s continues with Round 2.

Chaminade won the “opener” by the somewhat surprisingly one-sided score of 10-5 just over a month ago on April 5.

Today, is the second game of what promises to be a three-game set. The game, originally scheduled for yesterday, is set for today at 5:45 p.m. at St. Anthony’s.

In Connecticut, FCIAC champion Greenwich hosts Class S state finalist St. Joseph’s-Trumbull.

It’s a busy day in Rockland, with several key games, including Nanuet-TZ, Nyack-Pearl River and Clarkstown North-North Rockland.

Before we get to today’s slate, here’s another one of our popular quick programming notes.

  1. laxxatt says:

    Joe do games vs. Prep schools (Fordham and Iona) count towards seeding for Section 1 teams?

    • Joe Lombardi says:

      Yes, laxatt. For seeding, the CHSAA are considered affiliated of the NYSPHSAA. Games vs. schools outside New York State do not count.

  2. Doid23 says:
