‘A’ League Standings: Medina 1-0, Akron 2-1, Lyndonville 2-1, Roy-Hart 2-2, Albion 1-2, Lockport 1-2, Wheatfield/Cambria 1-2

Midget B suspends season

Down to just three teams, the Lockport Midget ‘B’ League has suspended its schedule for the rest of this season.

The ‘B’ League started the season with four teams but because Somerset has been unable to field a team, the lineup was reduced to just three squads- Albion, Lyndonville and Medina.

League officials indicated that they are planning to resume Midget ‘B’ League competition next year.
