We have to ask the question again … who’s the second best team in Rockland County?
And this time, I think, it means something because there are suddenly four quality teams on that side of the river. North Rockland and Pearl River are certainly in the conversation, and they meet this evening. There’s a rematch scheduled at the end of the season, as well. Clarkstown is also in the conversation.
I’m heading back to Sport-O-Rama to see how this one goes, so follow me @LohudHockey if you want score updates. This has got everything needed for a good show. I’ve seen both teams a couple of times. The Pirates have a slight advantage in skill and skating. Both teams have strong net minders. The Red Raiders have more depth and size.
Leave a prediction if you like.
