I’ll be dispensing high-fives on the sideline of a basketball court tonight, hoping my kids find a way to end a string of losses in the final seconds. Our goalie in residence, Nancy Haggerty, is helping me out and going to the mall to cover Mt. Pleasant and Clarkstown.
I’m just hoping some of that young Ice Cats talent is making the trip over the bridge, too.
The Mall Rats won the first meeting of the season, but we all know what happens to Mt. Pleasant on the weekends. If everyone is on hand, it should be a fun game.
Keep an eye on Fordham Prep, too.
A win against Rye might launch an improved Rams team in the top 10, and they know it.
