Before I start, I just wanted to say congratulations to Haldane on advancing to the state final four. And congratulations to Valhalla on another fantastic season.
Here’s a look again at today’s schedule:
at Nanuet High School
Class AA: John Jay-EF vs. Union-Endicott (Section 4), 3:30 p.m.
Class A: Pearl River vs. Elmira Free Academy (Section 4), 5:30 p.m.
Here’s my take on how things will go this afternoon:
John Jay-EF vs. Union-Endicott (Section 4): Union-Endicott is a scrappy team. This is how they won their Section 4 title (From Press Connects): U-E rallies past Corning But if you really think about it and have followed John Jay-EF especially in the playoffs, the Patriots have been playing solid ball. They didn’t hit as well as they did against Ursuline in the state semifinals but that’s the beauty of how good they are. Amanda Gisonni is pitching really well. This game will be a tight game. Prediction: John Jay-EF 5, Union-Endicott 4
Pearl River vs. Elmira Free Academy (Section 4): Here’s how Elmira won their Section 4 title (from the Press Connects): EFA Hustles way past M-E for another Sectional Softball title After reading that, I realized that they are a scrappy team. The play that was discussed in the story, I don’t know if the umps got the call wrong or what, but EFA took advantage. The last time the Pirates played a regional final game at Nanuet; they won. If the Pirates play their game, they’ll be going back to the state final four. Prediction: Pearl River 5, Elmira Free Academy 4
