Mamaroneck reclaims Section 1 boys lacrosse title – PLAAYoff highlights (VIDEO)

Thomas Conley jogged back to the line of his Mamaroneck teammates with almost an embrassed look on his face.

If Section 1 playoff games were, in fact, not held this year at the Westchester County Center as initially planned, no community would have been hit harder than Mamaroneck. A four-decade drought wouldn’t have ended on Friday night as it did with Mamaroneck’s gritty 49-42 win over Spring Valley in the Section 1 Class AA quarterfinals. The win earns the
