As many of you preps in New England know, the ISL is perennially one of the best leagues–top to bottom–in the nation. I was so busy myself preparing for the season that I forgot to write a preview of the league. So, without further adieu, here’s a recap of Week 1, 2013.
Gov’s/St. G’s 18-7
MX/St. Mark’s 17-3
The big matchup of the weekend was most definitely the Nobles/St. Sebastian’s game. Seb’s returned a majority of their 2012 ISL championship team, and has arguably one of the best defensive units in New England. Nobles played with nothing to lose as a young bunch under the leadership of their new coach. Seb’s has a tradition of running a sprint for every goal allowed immediately following each game. Eight sprints must have sucked after that upset. Read the full recap of the game via BostonLax.

Looking ahead to the upcoming week, some big games will be Belmont Hill/Roxbury Latin, Thayer/Nobles, Middlesex/Nobles, Rivers/Thayer, Governor’s/Belmont Hill. Every week is full of surprises in the ISL. I’m looking forward to seeing how Week 2 plays out.
