Somers, Westlake, Lakeland Set to Lock Down League Titles

Section 1 soccer is nothing to sneeze at anymore. After decades of mediocre fùtbol, the times they are a-changin’. A concerted effort by coaches across the section has witnessed a notable change in culture and results. The days of a “bag-of-balls-some-cones-and-a-half-assed-coach” are no longer permissible, and Section 1 is on the prowl these days; led by a 2016 charge that saw Class AA New Rochelle, Class A Somers, Class B Hastings and Class C North Salem win state titles.

Let’s dive in, shall we.

The undefeated Rams (5-0) and Tuskers (5-0) are not about to put the cart before the horse, but it’s beginning to look like a two-horse race for each in their respective conference as the run for the roses will commence with the playoffs opening on Oct. 29. Both are a win away from locking down their league titles and securing the No.1 seed in the playoffs.
