Finally, after three road games and a forfeit win that wiped out the original home opener, Medina will open the home portion of the football season Friday as the Mustangs host Roy-Hart/Barker in a C North Division Homecoming game at 7 p.m. at Vets Park.

The defending champion Mustangs are 3-0 in the division and 4-0 overall while the Bulls are 1-1 and 2-2 overall.

The weekend’s other two C North contests will have Newfane (3-0, 4-0) at JFK (0-3, 0-4) and Akron (1-2, 1-3) at Cleve Hill (0-2, 1-3) on Saturday at 2 p.m.

Albion will have the weekend off as the Purple Eagles have picked up a B2 Division forfeit win over Burgard which has cancelled the remainder of its season due to low numbers and injuries. The Purple Eagles are now 1-3 in the division and 2-3 overall.

The big game of the weekend in the B2 Division will be a key clash of unbeatens for first place as Maryvale (3-0, 4-0) visits Iroquois (4-0, 4-0) on Friday.

Holley will return to action after drawing a bye last weekend as the Hawks will host Frewsburg at 1 p.m. Saturday for Homecoming in an 8 Man Division matchup of 1-2 teams.
