Key games invoving several local teams including Medina/Lyndonville and rivals Kendall and Holley will likely decide the Niagara-Orleans League and Genesee Region League boys soccer champions this week.

Medina/Lyndonville, which is at 7-2, holds a one game lead over Newfane (6-3), Wilson (6-3) and Akron (5-3). The Mustangs will visit Newfane on Wednesday and host Akron on Saturday needing to win both games to lock up the title. Medina’s final N-O game wll be at Roy-Hart on Oct. 16. The Mustangs two league losses have been to Newfane (3-1) and Akron (1-0).

The Kendall boys squad, which leads the G-R with a 7-0-1 record, can put a lock on the title with a win either at rival Holley (4-2-1) on Monday or at Attica (1-6) on Wednesday. The Eagles nipped Holley 1-0 and downed Attica 4-0 earlier in the season.

The Kendall girls, now at 10-1, will look to maintain a hold on the G-R lead in games against Attica at home on Tuesday and at Alexander on Saturday.

On the gridiron, Albion will host Bennett on Friday night in a key battle for the B North Division lead. Bennett (4-0, 5-0) took over sole possession of first place on Saturday by downing City of Buffalo rival Burgard (3-1, 4-1) 20-12. Albion is also at 3-1 in the division (4-1 overall) after thumping Lew-Port 40-8 as the Purple Eagles seek a win to vault into a share of the division lead.

Medina, which is at 2-2 (3-2 overall), will visit Lew-Port (2-3, 2-3) Friday seeking a win to stay in the hunt for a sectional playoff berth.
