No. 7 North Rockland 3, No. 10 Suffern 1: Samantha Welsh went 4 for 4, including a triple and scored a run and Tiffany Alliano had two hits and an RBI as the Red Raiders won their 11th straight game. What a shame these two excellent teams had to meet in the first round.

Tuesday, June 3
No. 8 White Plains at No. 1 R.C. Ketcham, 4:30 p.m.: The teams met two weeks ago in the Ketcham tournament and the game was taken by Ketcham. Don’t be shocked if Ted O’Donnell and his players, led by senior catcher Sandra Mastrangelo, take this game.
No. 5 Yorktown at No. 4 John Jay-East Fishkill, 4:30 p.m.: Imagine this. These two excellent teams are meeting in the quarterfinals. This is reminiscent of last year when seventh-seeded Tappan Zee faced second-seeded Pearl River in a Class A quarterfinal. Both teams had tricky first-round games with John Jay rallying from a 5-2 deficit in the fifth inning with four runs.
No. 14 Ursuline at No. 6 Arlington, 4:30 p.m.: The Koalas and Taylor Pirone did it once, upsetting No. 3 John Jay.
No. 7 North Rockland at No. 2 Scarsdale: The Raiders survived a first-round game with Mamaroneck while North Rockland decisioned archrival Suffern.
Tuesday, June 3
No. 8 Harrison at No. 1 Pearl River, 4:30 p.m.: A tough spot for Harrison, but the Huskies will give Pearl River a good game.
No. 5 Hen Hud at No. 4 Lakeland, 4:30 p.m.: Round three takes place at Lakeland. Hen Hud took the regular-season set. I definitely suggest this game as one worth attending.
No. 11 Rye at No. 3 Eastchester, 4:30 p.m.: Eastchester handled Rye, 7-1 during the regular season.
No. 10 Brewster at No. 2 Tappan Zee, 4:30 p.m.: Tappan Zee comes off of a first-round bye and faces 10th-seeded Brewster. it almost doesn’t seem fair considering Brewster is not your ordinary 10 seed. If you’re in Rockland make your way down the Palisades or Route 303 to watch this excellent game.
Tuesday, June 3
No. 8 Hastings at No. 1 Albertus Magnus, 4:30 p.m.: The Falcons will be angry because the Yellow Jackets beat them at Albertus during the regular season.
No. 5 Westlake at No. 4 North Salem, 4:30 p.m.: Even though North Salem is the home team, Weatlake is rolling, having won 12 of its last 14 games.
No. 6 Rye Neck at No. 3 Kennedy, 4:30 p.m.: Devin DiSiena will be the difference for Kennedy. The fireballing windmiller has 200 strikeouts on the season.
No. 7 Dover at No. 2 Dobbs Ferry, 4:30 p.m.: Even without No. 1 windmiller pitcher Jackie Crews, the Eagles will find a way to win.
Tuesday, June 3
No. 3 Blind Brook at No. 2 Haldane, 4:30 p.m.: Too much Chelsea Lisikatos will shut down Blind Brook.
