For the second straight week, the majority of games are on the same day. This week, they happen to be scheduled on Thursday, meaning most teams had just four days’ rest.
Week 5 could be interesting.
My ultimate destination tonight is Torne Valley for South and Ramapo. But I hope to check out some or all of another game or two in Rockland this afternoon. We’ll also have reporters at other destinations, and you can get all the key score updates on Twitter at Twitter.com/LoHudInsider.
If you have a Twitter handle and score updates to share, send them my way. Either let me know you’re out there and I’ll respond with a follow or post your score update with @lohudinsider in the tweet. I’ll be sure to pass them around. The more updates, the more scores will flow in quickly to the blog.
