We were supposed to have some football today, but not this much. Mother Nature is cruel and had other ideas, so let’s enjoy it.
I’m heading to two games today. I’ll start at Pleasantville-Putnam Valley and follow up with Rye-Somers. You can catch updates from both of those games @lohudinsider. My colleague, Brian Heyman, will have updates from the big Class AA game of the day, Mahopac-New Ro, @bheyman99. Then, at night, there is a very good game between rivals, as John Jay travels to Yorktown in a rematch of (I believe) the highest scoring game all last season. Nancy Haggerty will be at Yorktown, and you can read her tweets @haggertynancy.
Of course, there’s plenty more today, so please leave us your scores and reactions if you’re on the football trail today. Check back later for final scores and recaps.
