This could be an extremely interesting evening.
I’m hesitant to make predictions in Division II because it has been difficult to get a good read on this group of teams all season. Look at the list of matchups. I see three games that could easily go either way.
That makes for good watching.
I’m heading back to Playland to see how a short-handed Rye Town/Harrison teams fares against Pearl River. The story line there is strong, and the start time works for me. You can follow me @lohudhockey for the updates. And if there’s time left in the Mamaroneck-Mount Pleasant game once I file, I’ll be driving over to Hommocks to catch the end of that game.
Leave a prediction below, and send along scores tonight if you’re out watching.
