Suffolk Slant: Top 10 Teams

Minor shuffling at the bottom of the deck this week, with East Islip, unbeaten in League III, moving into our Top 10 for the first time. Interesting games this week include a non-league affair matching two of the three Agostino brothers, Chris of No. 4 Harborfields and Tony of bubble-team Newfield. Oldest brother Jack has Amityville hanging on at No. 10. Also, Southold, the only other unbeaten team on Long Island besides Hills West, takes on perennial League VIII power Greenport.
