I understand the point but there was also a point to those responding - if you were at Staples last week it was for a reason. Not just a weekend drive as a spectator to see a game. I am all for seeing a game that is nearbye, but the travel and traffic to staples is a bit much for just watching a game as a fan.


I agree with the previous poster. my son and myself, separately, have attended rival games to size up the opponents, to hear patents of opposing team mutter "what the [lacrosse] is he doing here?"

Not necessarily , Syosset always seems to be a 2nd half team in competitive games. Last year's team was the same way. They just seem to start slow and then all of a sudden come alive. Sometimes I don't think it says anything about the other team it just shows you can't get too comfortable if you think you have a good lead when playing Syosset.

In pressed with SJB's Defense. Very good in the 1st and part of the 2nd quarter. But as the last poster, posted way to much for them. SJB's middies played well but attack not very good. If they had a stronger attack it could have been a little closer. The difference in the programs many more quality kids.


And how about faceoffs?

I live about a half an hour from Manhasset and i do not have a kid on Manhasset or CSH but was thinking about going over on Monday night to watch the game, would that be OK in your book or should I stay away? not sure were the cut off is.


You are a pervert if you don't at least have a kid with you.

Why? I was at a football tournament in NJ, an older woman was there, her husband had been a huge contributor to the HS football program in years past. He had passed away, yet she continued to attend. She said watching HS football was the highlight of her year, she had always gone, and always would. By herself, no children/grandchildren of her own in attendance. I would say she was about 65-70 years old. Is she a pervert? Give it a rest.

The game before that, Comsewogue held them to only 4 goals and it took a double overtime for SWR to squeak out a win.

The only thing that is perverted is your twisted sense of morality. There is nothing wrong with watching athletes play a game.

Faceoff kid was very good. Won a lot of the battles but didn't end up with the ball because of the LSM's? The LSM position is not as strong. Looks like there are 2 under classmen at LSM? freshmen or Soph? Just too small and not mature enough physically to compete on the Varsity yet. They look very tentative and were knocked all over when they went to get the ball.

Any pervert worthy of being called a pervert would have a kid with him, it just wouldn't be his.
Seriously, there is absolutely nothing perverted about going to a Youth sporting event without having a kid participating. I will occasionally stop and watch a little tykes soccer match to remind me of how innocent sport can be. I smile when I see the kids smile. I will go to HS games because I enjoy them, and they were a huge part of my life for years.
As to the notion of scouting games, I think it is all about age. At the HS level, sure why not......any younger and you are probably taking the whole thing a touch too seriously.

Delbarton over St. Anthony's today. Summti beat Delbarton in 3OT to start the season and remain undefeated. Bridgewater beat GC and also are undefeated. These 3 NJ teams are very good and can play with anybody. Probably Ridgewood too. Top NJ teams still underrated despite entering top end of national polls and by many on this board.

Only thing your missing is that St. A is not a top team, so the win doesn't prove much

oh really? Undefeated before this game and ranked towards the top in the country in national polls. But nice try. Delbarton also beat up Malvern Prep who was top 10 or better in national pools.

Has anybody heard whether kids were told they would be in Haverford and than didn't get in? I know this has been happening repeatedly over the last 3 or 4 years and just want to know if it happened this year. Amazing that a school that prides itself on a honor code would allow their Men's Head Coach to lie to 17 year olds each year.

Just let me know. Hope it didn't happen again
