Battling to stay in title contention, Albion faces a pair of key Niagara-Orleans League boys soccer games this week.

Albion, which is currently in second place at 5-2-1 and just a game behind Wilson (6-1-1) will have a chance to gain a share of the top spot when the Purple Eagles visit the Lakemen on Tuesday.  The teams played to a 3-3 tie in their earlier season meeting at Albion.

Albion will then close out the N-O season by hosting rival Medina/Lyndonville on Thursday while Wilson faces rival Newfane (4-3-1).

One other big boys soccer game will have Kendall visiting rival Holley on Tuesday in a Genesee Region League contest. The Hawks downed the Eagles 4-2 in an earlier season meeting.

In N-O girls soccer undefeated (9-0) Albion which has already locked up the title, will look to complete a perfect N-O season on Wednesday as the Purple Eagles host Barker.

A key N-O field hockey game on Tuesday will have Roy-Hart at Akron. Roy-Hart is currently tied for first place with Barker at 8-1 while Akron is two games off the pace at 7-3.

In N-O cross-country, Albion will host rival Medina and Newfane in a tri-meet on Tuesday.
