Week 2 is over, so Week 3 is now upon us. The schedule is a little lighter on Friday and heavier on Saturday than it has been.
I will hand out awards for last week’s best performances this afternoon. Have any suggestions for Week 2 Game Balls of Coach of the Week? Let me know.
Now, let’s look ahead to the schedule for Friday, Sept. 18 and Saturday, Sept. 19. Here are the highlights:
• Iona Prep and Stepinac will renew their rivalry – and play a rematch of last year’s great CHSFL AAA championship – on Saturday at Stepinac.
• Rye will host Yorktown Friday night in yet another championship game rematch. The two 2-0 teams look like Class A contenders against, so Friday’s winner will label itself the early favorite.
• New Rochelle will travel to North Rockland on Saturday and Arlington will visit John Jay-East Fishkill Friday. The latter is a rematch of last year’s all-Dutchess Class AA final. The former is a meeting of finalists many times past.
