They love the local matchups over in Rockland.
Clarkstown is heading for Sport-O-Rama tonight and will face off against Suffern at 7:15 p.m. There hasn’t been a lot of parity in Rockland for a while, but I’m thinking the Mounties and Mall Rats are closely matched.
There is a lengthy winning streak on the line.
Suffern has won 33 games against teams from Rockland County (thank you Cliff Clavin for the assist on that one). Clarkstown North was the last team to take down the Mounties, beating them 6-4 on Dec. 16, 2006.
I’ll be at the game and you can follow me @lohudhockey for the updates.
There’s another game that’s fairly big – Greeley vs. Mahopac at Brewster Ice Arena. Neither team has been able to gather momentum, but I still believe they are the best teams up in this neck of the woods.
