Anybody up for a double-header?
I’m going to spend part of my evening at Brewster Ice Arena, covering John Jay and Greeley. I have one question regarding the Quakers and it’s somewhere along the lines of, “What the heck?” The expectations were pretty high coming into the season, and they are not being met.
The Indians are slowly building momentum, and let’s not get caught up in the schedule. Not many teams on the verge of joining the powers that be are playing the likes of Suffern, Beekmantown, CBA/Jamesville-DeWitt, Scarsdale and Rye. And some of the BIA teams like Mahopac and Somers/North Salem are playing well. I do not see this group losing more than a game or two the rest of the way, and if the defending champs get the No. 1 seed for the Section 1 tournament, I don’t have an issue.
Keep us posted if you’re out watching. I will be tweeting John Jay-Greeley updates, and may catch the end of Mahopac and Hen Hud, which is a good watch if you like grinders.
