    Who needs depth? The Knights don’t. They’ve been doing just fine with their seven-player rotation. Idle last week, they get back into the thick of things with a matchup on Tuesday opposite a young, hungry Franklin squad that plays exhaustive man-to-man defense.

    This spot almost went to Hamilton, but Irvington had too good of a week to fall. The Bulldogs beat up on Class A favorite Pearl River and then took care of Albertus Magnus on Sunday. Let’s not forget that Irvington played with Ossining, too, and the Bulldogs will get their rematch the final week of the regular season.
