High school football kicks off tonight
Looking to build on the momentum from last fall’s 6-3 campaign, Medina hosts Amherst at 7:30 this evening at Vets Park in the B North Division season opener.
Junior quarterback Jason Hellwig leads the offense for Medina which will be facing Amherst on the gridiron for the first time since 1951.
Albion will likewise open B-North competition this evening as the Purple Eagles visit Barker/Roy-Hart at 7 p.m. at Middleport.
The Purple Eagles will be looking to avenge a narrow 33-30 loss last fall. Barker/Roy-Hart senior quarterback Jacob Haight booted a field goal with just four seconds remaining to win that wild contest.
Genesee Region League competition also gets under way this weekend as Holley visits Notre Dame of Batavia at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. The Hawks are led by the senior backfield duo of quarterback Dan Flanagan and running back Corey Winter.
