With their magic number for clinching the title now at one, Roy-Hart will face a key Niagara-Orleans League softball contest against runner-up Medina on Friday at 4:45 p.m. at Vets Park.

Roy-Hart is currently at 10-0 and Medina at 8-1 with that lone setback being a narrow 4-0 loss to the Lady Rams.

That earlier meeting, and a narrow 17-15 win over Akron, have been Roy-Hart’s only close league contests to date as the Lady Rams other 8 N-O wins have been by very lopsided scores of 44-2, 30-1, 28-3, 20-0, 22-0, 22-4, 22-1 and 20-2.

Roy-Hart will face Akron in the rematch next Wednesday to close out the N-O season.

Last year Roy-Hart, Medina and Akron finished as N-O tri-champions at 9-3.

The front-running Roy-Hart baseball squad also faces a key matchup against runner-up Medina at 4:45 p.m. Friday at Gasport.

Two-time defending champion Roy-Hart is currently at 8-1 and one game ahead of Medina and Akron, both at 6-2. Albion is two games off the pace in the loss column at 6-3.

Roy-Hart downed Medina 8-1 in their earlier meeting. The Rams lone loss was to Akron by a score of 5-3. The Rams will face the Tigers again next Wednesday.

Both Medina and Roy-Hart also still have to face Albion again. The Mustangs will meet the Purple Eagles on May 7 and the Rams on May 11.
