The fact that there were only four undefeated teams in all of Section 1 remaining entering Tuesday just goes to show how competitive and well-rounded the field is this year.
Three of those four teams will put their perfect records on the line Wednesday afternoon.
Dobbs Ferry has, in my opinion, the best opportunity of the three to keep a goose egg in its loss column — facing Mount Vernon, at home. Scarsdale and Ardsley will both have their hands full with Eastchester and Ursuline, respectively.
I’m going with Scarsdale-Eastchester as my “match of the night” because the Raiders will be hitting the road against a tough Eagles team. Without Hayley Kmetz (toe), Ardsley will need every bit of its home court advantage to keep the Koalas at bay.
You really can’t go wrong with either one, to be honest.
In Rockland, the Clarkstown North-North Rockland should be a fun one to watch. I’ll try and catch a game before heading into the office since the school is nearby.
I was one game away from having a perfect record of my own last night, but those pesky Trojans from Blind Brook held off Albertus Magnus in five games. Props to coach Goldstein and the girls, who are the fourth undefeated team from the aforementioned group.
