Yorktown eased into the season with three winnable games. It was a good way to let a new cast pick up some experience. Now the Huskers are going to be tested. A ridiculous stretch kicks off this afternoon with a visit from Darien, Conn., which is ranked sixth in the Under Armour/Inside Lacrosse High School Power Rankings.
Next up are Ridgefield, Conn., Bronxville, Ward Melville and John Jay.
Bronxville is also stepping way up, taking on Syosset, which is No. 23 on the UA/IL list. Win or lose, it’s a good experience, playing teams who dump mistakes into the net.
I’m digging out the rain gear and making a couple of stops. I’m going to be Fox Lane to see the section’s most dangerous offense take on Hen Hud. I’ll be at Yorktown after lunch to see how the Huskers stack up. You can follow along @lohudlacrosse.
