Holley begins defense of its Section V Class C Connors & Ferris Bowl title by facing Wayland-Cohocton in the semifinals at 6 p.m. Thursday at Caledonia-Mumford.

The game will be a rematch of last year’s Class C semi which saw Holley defeat Wayland-Cohocton 21-12. The Hawks went on to defeat Mynderse 34-6 in the championship game.

Offensively the Hawks are led by quarterback Jeremy Mallett and running backs Colin Papaj and Zach Day who have both scored 4 touchdowns.

The Hawks bring a 3-4 regular season record into the playoffs while the Golden Eagles are 1-6.

The Purple Eagles and Lancers both bring 2-5 records into the contest.

Barker/Roy-Hart is 2-5 and Pioneer 3-4. Pioneer bested Barker/RH in their only other meeting in 2014.
