Regular season competition will wrap up this week for boys and girls soccer in both the Niagara-Orleans and Genesee Region leagues.

A pair of rivalry contests will highlight the boys competition as Medina/Lyndonville visits Albion in N-O action at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and Holley hosts Kendall in a G-R game at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. The Mustangs defeated the Purple Eagles 3-1 in their earlier season meeting while Holley and Kendall battled to a 2-2 overtime tie in their first meeting.

In the G-R girls soccer Division 1 title race, defending champion Kendall (8-3) may not repeat but the Lady Eagles can certainly help decide who does claim the crown. Kendall will visit co-leader Byron-Bergen (11-1) on Tuesday while the other co-leader, Wheatland-Chili (11-1), faces Holley (2-7-1) on Thursday.

In the Niagara-Orleans League, Newfane has already locked up both the boys and girls soccer championships. In earning a second straight title the boys squad is 9-0 while the girls are 10-1.

On the gridiron, Medina/Lyndonville will host rival Albion at 7:30 p.m. Friday as the Mustangs seek a win to claim outright possession of the B East Division title. Holley will host Attica at 1:30 p.m. Saturday in a G-R contest as the Hawks look for a win to clinch a sectional playoff berth.


Holley will host rival Kendall to close out the Genesee Region League boys soccer season on Wednesday. Here the Eagles’ Jake Adams drives the ball up field against Hawks defender Dylan McKay during the earlier season meeting.
