The good news about yesterday’s thrilling Ursuline at North Rockland game is that I knew I’d have no problem filling space for my game story. The bad news is that I reached the limit and probably could’ve written twice as much. North Rockland won in walk-off fashion, but there were plenty of thrilling plays that did not make the cut for the story.

Thursday’s plans: I’ll be heading over to Ardsley at Valhalla today to check out some great Class B action over in Westchester. The last time these two met, Ardsley put up five early runs before the Vikings rallied back to win it in the Class B section tournament. If you get any results tonight, tweet me (@Zacchio_LoHud) or @LoHud_Debbie and I’ll add it to the roundup tomorrow morning. First and last names are just as vital as the stats.
