We have a couple of marquee games worth the price of admission.
Scarsdale is hosting Clarkstown in the opening round of its tournament. Suffern is hosting Niagara-Wheatfield in the championship game of its tournament. I’ll be layering up and heading to E.J. Murray to see how the undefeated Raiders handle a nameless opponent that is looking for a place in the spotlight. You can follow me @lohudhockey for the frozen-thumb updates.
There are some other intriguing matchups, too.
Iona Prep could make up ground in the standings with a win over Chaminade. Hen Hud is playing well and Yorktown will provide a test. Mount Pleasant is quietly collecting wins and will have its hands full against Pawling unless there’s a travel conflict or three.
Please, share any scores you come across out there.
