Thursday was a wash (unless you play for the Yankees), but Friday looks more promising. We have a full slate of games, and while there were some tough choices, I couldn’t resist the best pitching matchup of the day. Rye will host Albertus Magnus in its season-opener, which means that ace George Kirby is likely to get the ball. And for the Falcons, it looks like their ace James Reilly is lined up to pitch. Both guys were Elite 9 selections in the preseason, and both can really gas it up. This should be fun.
Here is the full schedule for Friday, with my picks in bold:
St. Raymond’s at Iona Prep, 4 p.m.
Fordham Prep at Kennedy, 4 p.m.
Salesian at All Hallows, 4 p.m.
Scarsdale at Suffern, 4:15 p.m.
White Plains at North Rockland, 4:15 p.m.
Clarkstown North vs. New Rochelle at Davis Elementary School, 4:15 p.m.

Bronxville vs. Palisade Prep at Fleming Field, 4:15 p.m.
