Syosset playing at an entirely different level than GC and CSH...at least it looked that way last night. That game was played so muck faster. GC and Manhasset both looked a little off, bad passes, dropped balls etc but was the most exciting of the three games. It is hard to believe that LV beat CSH during regular season play.
GC will go no further. weak conference and poor level of play against equally poor playing teams. good and very lucky run up till now, tho
Not a GC parent, but my son has played with and against many of those kids. Great to see they rebounded and won the Counties. After all the adversity those kids dealt with all year, great to see them bounce back. For my part GC has always been a classy, 1st rate program, good for them
Self inflicted adversity really doesn't warrant accolades in my book. Congrats to GC, but easy on the "overcoming adversity" storyline.
The kids that were dismissed from team as a result of their poor choices created the self inflicted adversity unto themselves. The players that are on the team had to face the adversity of performing with out 6 members of the varsity team and rise up from all the noise that was going on around them deserve a lot of credit. Many teams would have just folded like a house of cards yet they didnt.
Their coach deserves a lot of credit for keeping the boys on the right path. There were so many reasons they could have failed. He also deserves a ton of credit for changing his style of play to match the players he has. In yesterdays game he made an on the fly adjustment that completely changed the outcome of the game in the 4th quarter. The invert he ran was brilliant and resulted in the comeback. Congratulations to GC.
