If you have opposable thumbs, start twiddling.
There isn’t much going on today, which is why I’m off to work on a couple of golf assignments. I’m guessing there will be a lot of talk about what happened to Scarsdale last night, and there should be an equal amount of discussion about the way Pearl River played that game. If you’re a Division II team keep an eye on this team.
While the Pirates are not as deep as some of the perennial contenders, they do play with an edge. Opponents need to be ready for a bumpy game and match the intensity.
Scarsdale will be fine so don’t overreact to one game. Rob Burns, a top defenseman, is healthy and will be on the ice for the next game. The Raiders have talent and numbers. Nicholas, Schell and Blakely rank among the best lines in the section. I will say this, Scarsdale has to get something more than minutes from the second line to compete for a title in Division I.
Fieldston at Harvey, 4 p.m.
Pearl River 4, Scarsdale 2
