So with the confusion recently about when North Rockland would play New Rochelle Week 1, I called Joe Casarella tonight in search of some clarity. The Section 1 website had scheduled the game for Sept. 11 but many of you and a couple other schedules I had seen listed the date as Sept. 12.
The game is, in fact, Sunday, Sept. 12 at 1:30 p.m. at North Rockland. Casarella confirmed the date and time. He said his program will not play on Sept. 11.
If you’re a big football fan who doesn’t mind driving, you can now catch all three of the biggest games of Week 1. Start at Iona Prep at 1:30 on Saturday and then cruise up the Hutch to Harrison at 4:30. Then you have to skip Week 1 of the NFL season, but you can now catch a rematch of the Class AA final on Sunday.
