Had another solid week, going 4-0-1. This is all an appetizer, though, for the real meal. The playoffs start Friday and I’ll make predictions on every single game in every class.
Still, we have three days of games left. A lot of the league titles are already wrapped up, so I decided to pick four inter-league games.
OVERALL RECORD: 22-6-5
Scarsdale at Eastchester, 4:15 p.m.
Pick: Eastchester, 2-1. This has all the makings of ending a 2-2 draw. The Eagles had a tough 1-0 loss at Horace Greeley last week. I think they gain back some momentum at home prior to sectionals.
Byram Hills at Bronxville, 4:30 p.m.
Pick: Byram Hills, 2-1. This Broncos team has been up and down with a very nice win against Scarsdale that came after a draw against Pearl River. Not your typical Bobcats’ score because of Charley Warble in goal, but a Byram Hills’ win nonetheless.
Arlington at North Rockland, 4:30 p.m.
Pick: North Rockland, 2-1. A rematch of last season’s Class AA sectional final that ended in a draw with the Admirals advancing on penalty kicks. I think Arlington is a lot better than their record indicates. I like the Red Raiders, though.
Tappan Zee at Rye, 5 p.m.
Pick: Rye, 2-1. THE FIRE GAME! The teams will pick up where they left off, 9:19 left in the first half and the game tied 1-1 to be exact, to finish up this battle of Class A contenders. This is a weird situation for both teams, picking up a game that’s essentially halfway done.
