Three playoff-bound Pearl River sports teams got their first-round schedules Wednesday, with one more coming today.
The primary difference being that the volleyball, field hockey and boys soccer teams will all open the Section 1 playoffs on the road, but the girls soccer team should get a first-round game at home Saturday.
Pearl River enters the playoffs 13-1-2, one of the top teams in Class A and a contender for the section title after losing in the semifinals a year ago. The Pirates began the season with a tie and a loss, then ripped off 13 victories over the 14 games since. The only game they didn't win was a tie against Suffern.
Pearl River's cross-scheduled football game against Ossining is already scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Saturday on the main field. The girls soccer game could be played at 11 a.m. unless there are conflicts with a player on either team taking ACT tests that morning. The Section 1 seeding meeting is this morning, so check back with Patch later today to find out more.
