LICs and CHSFL finals: How you voted
The high school football season might be in the record books, but it's not officially over until we reveal how you voted in our "Pick the LICs and CHSFL championships" gallery.
So without further ado, here are the final results (for the purposes of this chart, "Team 1" refers to the first team listed under the "Game" column, while "Team 2" refers to the second team):
|GAME||TEAM 1 VOTES||TEAM 2 VOTES||ACTUAL RESULT|
|Floyd vs. Farmingdale (Class I LIC)||527||267||Floyd, 31-14|
|Garden City vs. Riverhead (Class II LIC)||243||140||Garden City, 29-16|
|Sayville vs. Lawrence (Class III LIC)||560||465||Lawrence, 21-20|
|Roosevelt vs. Babylon (Class IV LIC)||151||220||Babylon, 48-18|
|St. Anthony's vs. Chaminade (CHSFL Class AAA)||357||163||Chaminade, 17-16|
|St. John the Baptist vs. Xavier (CHSFL Class AA)||146||56||Xavier, 35-24|
