In the action on Sunday, November 21st, West Islip crushed Manhasset in the preseason tournament. West Islip versus Shoreham-Wading River provided the best competition on the day. Farmingdale did not have their full team (following the Freeport football game?) and were soundly beated by Smithtown East. According to BOTC Industries sources, approximately fifty Division One NCAA programs were represented at these High School scrimmage matches.

Manhasset's schedule now lists them traveling to Maryland to play Severna Park and Annapolis in late April.

Section VIII allows a maximum of fifteen regular season games; Section XI allows for sixteen games.

Last year in C, Manhasset played six non-league games - South Side, Northport, Garden City, Chaminade, Darien and John Jay. They had nine League games in C for a total of fifteen.

Last year in B, Garden City played six non-league games - Manhasset, Syosset, Smithtown West, St Paul's, Yorktown and New Canaan. They had nine league games in B including none that were crossovers to B-2.

Calhoun, MacArthur and Long Beach all moved to A for 2011 and Malverne, Manhasset and Wheatley moved to B so there are the same number of teams in B that there were last year. Last year with 24 teams, all B teams had only five non-league dates.

So far in 2011 the non-league games scheduled for Manhasset and Garden City are:

Garden City - Syosset, Smithtown West, San Ramon Valley CA and Ward Melville.

Manhasset - Severna Park MD, Annapolis MD, Darien CT and likely CSH for sure. Woodstick might end up being a crossover B league game or the 5th NL date.

Class C has three fewer teams than last year so CSH should be looking for at least three more dates. Manhasset would certainly be one. Last year the Seahawks played two Florida teams, South Side, Hicksville, Syosset and Huntington as their six non-league games.

Some player highlights form Suffolk County ... The Gamblin family has moved into the Sachem North school district [which will really harm Hicksville in their battle with Farmingdale] and turns Sachem North into a Suffolk title contender.

Over in Sayville, their goalie (Fleming) is reported as a sure thing for D1 action even as a junior right now.

West Islip has lost their big guns and might not be at the same level as last year's team. Northport's middle school and JV group are the up and comers over the next several years - seem strong than West Islip's crew.

Looks like the usual preseason/non-league match between Hicksville and CSH has been cancelled. Perhaps Hicksville has just gotten tired of the early season surprise from Class B? CSH figures to have a strong group of seniors and juniors (and some underclassmen) this year.

Over in Suffolk, did Bayport/Bluepoint get moved to Class B? Seems like they have. A good match up to watch for early in the season in Class B is Sayville and Bayport. Bayport returns alot from there Suffolk finals appearance last year, but lost a very good goalie. The key to this game will be if Bayport's offense can score past Fleming in net and if Sayville can get some offense going without Mellynchuck.

Everyone here in WI would like to thank all this poster who gave such a beautiful eulogy for our team. I'm sure that Craig and Hoppey are on the phone right now discussing how to disband their programs in the face of a Juggernaut like SN. GO LIONS!

Don't be too sure who is dodging who.

Perhaps CSH decided to avoid a meaningless and very physical game early in the season. The school is small, has only a few great athletes, and has a coach who pulls starters in football games very early to avoid injury. Hicksville plays a hard hitting football style game and some of the CSH kids got nicked up in their last game, which was more than chippy. Cold Spring plays a finesse game and does not like the contact.

Sounds a little like Talent Vs. Toughness. Just my two cents but talent will win nine out of ten times!

Farmingdale schedule released - both Holy Trinity and Wantagh are on the play list! Foothill-Santa Anna California then Shoreham-Wading River under the lights here.

Back to the sump in Port, the Pequa at Field of Dreams. Dalers are are home vs. Hicksville - good thing, its rare walking out of that Walker Park - a happy daler fan.

Dalers should cruise - but I wish all well.

Patric Berkery, M, Garden City (NY) has verbally committed to Penn and their admissions process, continuing the GC to UPenn pipeline. Standing out 5'11 and 180 pounds, Berkery has been one of the keys to the Trojans' potent offense since freshman year, picking up several offensive MVP honors in the playoffs this past season. He attended Blue Chip as a rising sophomore and junior and plays club with For the Love of the Game. Berkery also considered Duke, Princeton, Harvard and Penn State.

actually 8. lost offensive minded middie and goalie. might miss some of the middies goals but the big loss is the goalie.
we will see if their defensive unit can protect the incoming goalie better than they protected the departed one.

How about a 2 day deal with Manhasset, Garden City and 2 of the above teams? No need to crown a champion, but each team gets 2 quality non-conference games. People would travel to watch those games. And half the crowd in the stands would be D1 coaches.

Great crowds for sure - but college recruiting over the last few years has led college coaches towards watching JV games with earlier signings! The varsity kids are all committed!

My guess is that Huntington (They are legit and will be next yr as well) would beat Garden City if they get through Suffolk B. Too many fall in love with names at Garden City.

There is the usual assumption that they will win states, go undefeated and possibly be #1 in the country. I will be surprised if they accomplish any of those. There are some other tremendous teams out there, but for some reason when GC gets some studs on the team they are hyped more than anyone else.

GC is a close second to St. A's (who I'm very high on) in my opinion - some people don't think the Trojans are strong enough to be ranked in the top 3 nationally. I would put them #2. Don't want to spoil our preseason rankings though...

1. Garden City
2. St. Anthony's
3. Chaminade
4. Manhasset
5. West Islip

Early predictions - Class A: Sachem North over Farmingdale (I may be drinking the Sachem North kool aid but I do think Gamblin is that good), Class B: Garden City over SWR, Class C: CSH over Bayport

GC has to be the preseason favorite. They have one of best defenses in the league. The three starters are all going D1 (Fischer and Jahelka - Harvard) and Burnside (Penn State) are they are very deep at midfield.
Although the defense receives most of the accolades, the offense is also first rate. Dwyer (Harvard recruit) will run the offense from X and will have an abundance of talented players to feed including Gordon (Hopkins); Coleman (Penn); Berkery (Penn recruit), Savage, Kennedy and McDonnell. Should be a great year for the Trojans.

A- Smithtown West over Farmingdale- this was definitely the hardest class to predict. I think with Hicksville losing Gamblin, Farmingdale has to be the favorite out of Nassau, but I would not be surprised by any of four teams (West Islip, Ward Melville, Sachem North, Smithtown West) winning Suffolk. I think SW's firepower on offense wins out in the end. If they absolutely need a goal, they just have so many options. I say they top SN in a high-scoring Suffolk final along the lines of 15-14.

B- Garden City over Shoreham-Wading River- Garden City-Manhasset will be a fantastic Nassau final which I think will be close and low-scoring due to both teams' fantastic defenses. Somewhere in the 6-5 or 7-6 neighborhood. SWR has good young players on both sides of the ball (Rotanz, Mahoney) but they're no match for a much deeper GC squad in the LI championship.

C- Cold Spring Harbor over Glenn- CSH might face a stiff test from Friends Academy, but I think they're too deep for the Quakers in the end. Ditto for the LI championship against Glenn. Tommy Forsberg would have to have a Connor English-esque performance for them to pull off the upset.

It's the Acompora tournament. A different format this year - four regulation games played back to back at Veterans Park off Bellerose Avenue in East Northport (same place the Empire top 50 game was). Matches include Northport-Corning and EI-Mahopac.

No doubt to me that Teresky, Zakow, and Finn are the second best attack unit in Suffolk. All scored 30 goals last season and all are D1 talents. Teresky has D1 offers but has yet to commit, Zakow is a junior who is likely to receive a lot of attention this summer, and Finn is a D1 caliber player but I'm not sure where he will end up. Who would you have ahead of Sachem North on defense? Smithtown West would be my other option (it's certainly not Whitman or EI). Harris (SB), Raum (Adelphi) and possibly Tyler Andreassi (soph) should be a solid group.

Although the defense receives most of the accolades, the offense is also first rate. Dwyer (Harvard recruit) will run the offense from X and will have an abundance of talented players to feed including Gordon (Hopkins); Coleman (Penn); Berkery (Penn recruit), Savage, Kennedy and McDonnell. Should be a great year for the Trojans.
Garden City does have a very good team and sometimes can play great. However, they are the most hyped team I ever have seen in my life. Most of the players are hyped and people are wondering if Newsday has some sort of connection to this team. Some kids are very good players but read too many paper clippings and think the papers are going to play the game. If they focus they are a tough team to beat. For the record they have one of the most dirtiest defense-men I ever had the pleasure to watch play. Take this to the bank.

West Islip's midfield is too high and their defense is ranked low (if you mean team defense and not individual players).

Individually there's Pelegrino ... then everyone else. The two starters for West Islip - Carrick and Byrnes - are very good. The midfield has to build something around Sagl the other seniors need to step up.

I also still have WM ahead of Sachem North and Smithtown West until I see some results in the early scrimmages.

I liked Sachem North as a sleeper team before last season, so I will not be surprised if they do turn out to dominate this year, but I need to see something first.
