Welcome to Patch's daily snapshot of sports in Peekskill and Cortlandt.
Both Lakeland/Panas and Hendrick Hudson are hosting Section 1 semifinal contests today. It's just too bad that the game times aren't staggered because these are really both must-see events.
To see how each local squad advanced to their respective Final Fours, check out the quarterfinal wrapup on MSG Varsity.
The No. 1 Rebels will be hosting No. 4 Mahopac in a Class A semifinal at 5 p.m. at Lakeland High School.
Lakeland/Panas beat Mahopac earlier in the season in overtime 6-5 at LHS on Brian Prunty's game winner.

The two rivals met twice last season as well, with Mahopac winning both games, including a 7-5 victory in the Class A title game.
Hen Hud, the No. 11 seed, is hosting No. 18 Pleasantville in a Class C semifinal at 5 p.m. at Hendrick Hudson High School.
The two teams met earlier this season at Pleasantville, with the Sailors winning 10-8 according to Mike Dougherty's post on the LoHud Boys Lacrosse Blog.
No. 10 Hen Hud (13-7) will host No. 23 Rye (5-13) and No. 17 Walter Panas (9-11) will travel to No. 16 John Jay (9-11) in Class A outbracket games at 4:30 p.m. today according to MSG Varsity.
Should Hen Hud win, it would venture to No. 7 Brewster (14-5) and if Panas is victorious, it would play at No. 1 Pearl River (17-1) at 4:30 p.m. on Friday in the opening round.
