Is Suffern returning to the pack? It would certainly appear that way. The Mounties have lost two games against Section 1 opponents — White Plains and Mamaroneck — this season. It marks the first time this has happened since the 2008-09 season. Still, coach Rob Schelling's three-time defending Section 1 D1 champs get the benefit of the doubt here. When everything is on the line, the Mounties have always proven to be a cut above.

Senior-laden Tigers are 5-2 over their past seven games and appear to be peaking at the right time. There isn't a team in Section 1 with more speed and size than Mamaroneck.

Indians were forced to settle for a 4-4 tie against an underrated Somers/North Salem team. Back-to-back games against Greeley (Jan. 19) and Rye (Jan. 26) loom large.

Coach Ed Witz's battle-tested squad rides a three-game winning streak into tonight's tilt against Suffern. The Mounties dealt Pelham a 6-1 loss back on Dec. 21. Expect the score to be a lot closer in the friendly confines of the Ice Hutch.

If the Quakers can get past rival John Jay-CR on Saturday, they will have the inside track toward the top seed in the upcoming Section 1 D2 playoffs.

Clarkstown is coming off a statement-making 5-2 win over Rye last Friday. The Mike Gillespie-led squad will look to carry the momentum into Saturday's clash against Scarsdale.

Defense has been an issue of late for the Garnets, who have relinquished 14 goals over their past five games. They gave up just seven goals en route to a 6-0 start to the season.

If there's a silver lining in the Tigers' four losses, it's that all of them have been nail-biters. White Plains has lost two one-goal games and two two-goal games.

Life without playmaking sophomore forward Devon Schell hasn't been easy for the Raiders, who are coming off back-to-back losses to John Jay-CR and Mamaroneck.

Sabers are one of Section 1's hottest teams, going 6-0-1 over their last seven games. And the tie came against undefeated John Jay-CR.
