The Rams finished up the past week with a loss to Lohud.com #3 ranked John Jay and a dominant win versus St. Peter’s Prep (NJ). On tap for this week is only one game, but that one game happens to be tomorrow against Iona Prep at Murphy Field at 4:30pm. The Gaels will be looking to avenge their two losses to the Prep last year; a 7 - 6 OT thriller during the regular season (recap) and a 10 - 9 game for the CHSAA CIty Championship (recap). Not that anyone needs a refresher on what this rivalry means to both schools, but as a reminder to how tight this rivalry has become here are some numbers. Since 1992, the Fordham / Iona game has been decided by one goal 18 times with one goal games occurring twice in a season five times (1992, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2018). On top of that, the games have been decided in overtime seven times including twice in triple overtime (2008, 2014).
Iona is currently ranked #4 in the Lohud.com rankings (here) with a record of 6 - 1 and wins over Bergen Catholic (NJ), Don Bosco Prep (NJ), and a 10 - 6 win over Stepinac. Their only loss is an 8 - 7 contest against Kellenberg. Come on out and cheer on the Rams tomorrow afternoon!
John Jay Recap (L 10 - 3):
The Rams headed up to John Jay to face one of the consistently top programs in the area who was looking to avenge its loss to the Prep last year (recap). The Indians got on the board first and had three goals in the net before Dominic Trennert ‘20 (Manhattan) scored off an assist from Quinn Beyer ‘19 (Rye) following a fast break clear by Stephen Zupicich ‘19 (Bronxville). John Jay netted a few more taking a 6 - 1 lead into halftime. The Prep started the scoring in the second half with a quickstick goal from a cutting Quinn English ‘19 (Port Chester) off a pass from X from Owen Murray ‘20 (Larchmont). This was then answered by two more goals from the Indians to stretch the lead to 8 - 2. Brendan Sowarby ‘19 (Manhattan) closed out the 3rd quarter by scoring the Prep’s third goal with 11 seconds left off a rebound from John Jay’s keeper. Unfortunately, that was as close as the Rams could get and the Indians took home the 10 - 3 win.

Both teams traded goals the rest of the quarter and it was 3 - 2 Fordham at the start of the 2nd. The Rams then put in four straight, including a strike from James Cunningham ‘19 (Larchmont) to end the half with a 7 - 2 margin.
