Historically, Lower Merion has been the team with the target on their back, the first place squad that everyone is pursuing in the Central League standings.
That is not the case this year: rather than Lower Merion sitting atop the Central League standings, it is their Friday opponent, Ridley.
“This is the first time that we have been ahead of them in the standings since I have been the head coach now,” said Ridley coach Mike Snyder, who’s in his fifth year as head coach. “It is different this year from where we usually are, we are usually trying to chase them from the top spot so we just gotta be ready to play.”
