Pearl River Sports: Girls Soccer Today, Cross Country Tuesday

Section 1 post-season events resumed over the weekend. The Pearl River girls soccer team will play at home 2:30 p.m. today against Eastchester in the Section 1 Class A quarterfinals.

The Pearl River girls soccer team last played Oct. 27, a 3-0 victory over Harrison in the first round of the Section 1 Class A playoffs.

Nine days later, the No. 2 seed Pirates will resume their post-season journey, 2:30 p.m. today at home against No. 7 Eastchester. The winner of that contest will play at home against No. 11 Rye Tuesday in the semifinals. Rye beat Panas Sunday. The Section 1 championship game is scheduled for Wednesday at a site to be determined. 

Section 1 canceled all competition Monday through Friday of last week due to Hurricane Sandy. Teams in the soccer playoffs were given Saturday through today to play their quarterfinal games.

The Section 1 cross country championships at Bowdoin Park were postponed until Tuesday. Pearl River is the defending Class B boys and girls champion.

Pearl River schools re-opened this morning.
