OK, we’re back for another day of football today after an eventful Friday night. Nyack unseated Rye atop (or, depending on your previous opinion, near the top) of Class A. Pelham easily dispatched of Lourdes, jumping in front of the overmatched (and, yes, very overhyped) Warriors 26-zip at half. And Mahopac survived a very tight game to win on the road at Clarkstown North.
There are no matchups of unbeatens today like those three were. Still, we’ll be out covering four games live: Roosevelt-Sleepy, Westlake-Kennedy, North-Rockland-Suffern and Harrison-Eastchester. I’m covering the latter but will stop by somewhere beforehand. So please check out my Twitter page at Twitter.com/lohudinsider for updates.
