Has this been a fun season, or what?

A number of our Top 10 teams have had to earn hard wins over their intersectional rivals. This includes last week’s enormous triple-OT win on the past of No. 1 St. Anthony’s over Darien (Conn.). And think of this: there’s going to be some great games this Saturday in the Gains for Brains showcase as well as a game in just two days featuring FCIAC rivals Darien and New Canaan (Conn.).

1. South Huntington St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) 8-0
The Friars got an overtime goal from Brooke Long on an amazing skip pass from Kat Rathjen to pull out a 5-4 win. Alexandra Zenk, in the goal cage, was once again immense for St. Anthony’s, making a bunch of crucial saves in overtime. St. Anthony takes on Summit (N.J.) this weekend in the Gains for Brains showcase
2. Olney Good Counsel (Md.) 16-0
The Falcons have scored 294 goals this season. Do the math; this team is an offensive juggernaut
3. Owings Mills McDonogh (Md.) 12-1
Eagles got a key road win against Bel Air John Carroll (Md.) on Sunday; next Monday, the team finishes off its IAAM schedule against Brooklandville St. Paul’s School for Girls (Md.)
4. New Canaan (Conn.) 5-1
The Rams bested Rumson-Fair Haven (N.J.) and Greenwich (Conn.) last week; the Thursday derby against Darien should be an absolute classic
