You can drive in any direction today and find really good lacrosse.
I’ll be making the short commute across Route 121 to watch Suffern take on John Jay and you can follow me @lohudlacrosse for updates. The Mounties rank among the long list of contenders in Class A. The Indians are poised to give Yorktown a run.
The rest of the noteworthy games are listed below with a rambling thought.
Please, if you’re out watching, send along the final score and I’ll retweet the updates. It’s more fun when everybody can follow along.
(All games are 4:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted)
Fordham Prep at St. John the Baptist, 2 p.m.
Iona Prep at Kellenberg, 3 p.m. (The Gaels opened with a loss to Chaminade, but are playing a team of mere humans this time)
Irvington at Ardsley, 4:15 p.m.
Cornwall at Albertus Magnus, 4:15 p.m.
Lourdes at Peekskill
Brewster at North Salem
Ossining at Carmel
Haldane at Wappingers
Arlington at Fox Lane (I have a feeling Arlington is not taking a step back)
Putnam Valley at Lakeland/Panas
Greeley at Mahopac
Mamaroneck at Pleasantville (A meeting of reigning Section 1 champions, and the Panthers still have plenty of attitude)

Nanuet at Scarsdale (The Raiders fall into the better-than-you-think category. The Golden Knights are still pretty good)
