N-O title races to begin stretch run
With just two weeks remaining in the regular season the Niagara-Orleans League baseball, softball and tennis title races will begin heading into the stretch run this coming week.
On the N-O baseball diamonds, Roy-Hart at 8-1 currently holds a one game lead over 7-2 Albion. The Rams and Purple Eagles will meet in a key contest on Friday. Roy-Hart won the earlier season meeting 5-0.
The N-O softball race has Akron leading the way at 8-1, a game head of defending champion Roy-Hart at 7-2. The Lady Tigers and Lady Rams will meet in a key showdown on Wednesday at Roy-Hart. The Lady Tigers romped to a 23-2 win in the earlier season meeting.
On the tennis courts, the N-O title race is a near instant replay of last year’s three-way race between Albion, Medina and Akron. The Purple Eagles emerged victorious in that battle claiming the N-O crown with a 9-3 record as the Mustangs and Tigers finished ted for second at 8-4. Albion currently holds the top spot at 8-0 with Medina at 8-1 and Akron 6-2.
Albion will host Medina on Wednesday and Medina will entertain Akron on Thursday in a pair of key matches. Albion nipped Medina 3-2 1/2 and Medina bested Akron 3 1/2-2 in the earlier season meetings.
The Lyndonville softball squad, which is undefeated in Genesee Region League competition at 8-0, has three league games on the schedule including home contests against Byron-Bergen on Monday and Elba on Tuesday and at Wheatland -Chili on Friday.
