  Oak Hall joined Broward County and St. Edward's in shutting down for now and I'm sure there will be plenty more today as school boards will decide that's it.  As I am typing this CNBC is reporting there will be a national state of emergency declared today along the lines of The Stafford Act, which could be used by state and local authorities to go further.  I've also heard New York City will shut down this weekend as a precaution. The point of all this is that if tonight is the swan song for the season, this will be your last chance to show the kids, coaches, refs and the entire community your appreciation for all the hard work and commitment it took to entertain us so much in such a competitive milieu. And I only ask one favor.  When the game enters the last 30 seconds, re...

LHP Takes the FHSAA Girls’ Title Win Over Benjamin 11-6;  Will It Signal A Future Too?

LHP Takes the FHSAA Girls’ Title Win Over Benjamin 11-6; Will It Signal A Future Too?

photos by Ted Swoboda The story last night was two-fold.  LHP wins their first FHSAA Girls' title over Benjamin last night 11-6.  It was 10-2 at halftime and even with a small Benjamin run of 3 goals in the second half the lead was never seriously jeopardized and that wasn't a big surprise.  The Benjamin program is to be commended for their great season but most thought the other side of the bracket had the two best teams this season and that did play out in the Final Four. I'm including links to the PB Post and Sun-Sentinel articles for you to read the game recaps, I can't really add to that as far as the game was concerned.  Less than 6 minutes into the game it was 5-1 LHP and the rest of the game felt like a holding pattern. LHP's Jackie Norsworthy continued her Final Four producti...

Benjamin vs Hagerty at 5:00pm Thursday This matchup did not occur in the regular season and one thing to start with is the comparison of common opponents: St. Thomas Aquinas: 2/23 – Hagerty loses 13-11 on the road, 3/28 – Benjamin wins 10-6 at home Bishop Moore: 3/14 – Hagerty loses 12-9 at home, 3/18 – Benjamin loses 20-9 at home IMG: 3/29 – Hagerty loses 14-11 at IMG, 3/9 – Benjamin wins 13-6 at IMG St. John Paul II: 4/10 – Hagerty wins 9-8 at home, 4/1-Benjamin wins 11-2 at home Bartram Trail: 4/12 – Hagerty loses 13-9 at Bartram, 3/18 – Benjamin wins 12-9 at home (yes, Benjamin played two games at home on 3/18 and the Bishop Moore game was the second one) When you look at the comparative scores the edge goes to Benajmin.  Another thing in their favor is that Benjamin is ridi...
