All of Wednesday’s matches will be taking place on this side of the bridge, as Rockland has no games scheduled. There’s a few good matches on the slate, but in terms of “interesting” games, the Rye at Ossining game should be a fun one.
Looking at Ossining’s schedule this year, you would think this game is a typo. The Pride (11-3) have more out-of-section wins than Rye (4-9) has overall wins. The obvious storyline as the season comes to a close is Saniya Chong’s chase for the all-time section scoring title.
Now 99 points shy of tying Karen O’Connor’s record of 2,662 career points, Chong could probably break the record tomorrow if coach Dan Ricci unleashed her for all 32 minutes, but we all know that’s not going to happen. (Although, it would be one heck of a story)
Chong will all-but-certainly play three quarters, if not less, so it’s really a matter of how much scoring she does in the time she’s allotted. My guess is that she’ll have about an average scoring day (30-35 points), but she’ll have a truckload of assists. Only time will tell.
