Today, beginning at 10 a.m. at Cold Spring Harbor (N.Y.), the annual Gains for Brains Showcase will be played.

Ten games featuring 20 teams from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut will cross sticks for some amazing lacrosse action and fundraising for the Making Headway Foundation.

This year, all of the games on the lower field at the school are scheduled to be livestreamed on the NFHS Network. And truth be told, it’s an awesome reason to get your subscription now, even though the upper field games (including last year’s national No. 1 team Darien) are not on the NFHS Network docket. And that Darien team has to be hopping mad after finishing a 5-5 overtime tie against New Canaan on Thursday.

Each of these games are intersectional matches, each with regional implications. I think the two best games of the ten are the Upper Field match between Manhasset (N.Y.) and Darien (Conn.) at 6 p.m., and South Huntington St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) against Summit (N.J.) at 3 p.m. on the lower field.

If you’re able, go see this amazing showcase or tune in on the NFHS Network. These should be some special, special games.
