Mahopac showed no signs of missing all that scoring they lost to graduation, with an impressive 14-4 win against Arlington. The Indians wasted no time, jumping out to a 12-1 lead at halftime.
I picked Mahopac to be a contender in Class A this season, so cheers to them for making me look good on day one.
Yorktown wasn’t as lucky, falling to a talented Ward Melville team 13-9. As I pointed out in today’s schedule, the Patriots have seven seniors committed to Division 1 schools. Yorktown went down 10-2 in the first half, but managed to battle back. While I’m sure the Huskers aren’t happy with the loss, a 13-9 result against a team of that caliber is nothing to sneeze at.
No games tomorrow, but tune in during the morning and afternoon to check out my Class B and C predictions.
