Football and boys and girls soccer sectional playoff action gets underway this week highlighted by a local rivalry contest and a key rematch.

The girls soccer sectionals action will feature a Medina/Lyndonville at Albion rivalry meeting in the opening round of the Section VI Class B-1 playoffs  at 6 p.m. Wednesday. The teams played to a pair of overtime contests during the Niagara-Orleans League season. Albion won the first 3-2 while the second ended in a 3-3 deadlock.

The rematch will have No. 6 seed Albion visiting No. 3 Dunkirk in the quarterfinals of the Section VI Class B football playoffs at 7:30 p.m. Friday.  The Marauders nipped the Purple Eagles 18-15 two weeks ago in a key clash of unbeatens for the B-2 Division title.

Another gridiron rematch will see Medina/Lyndonville hosting Alden in the semifinals of the Class B Chuck Funke Memorial Bowl at 6:30 p.m. Thursday. The Mustangs downed the Bulldogs 58-34 two weeks ago at Alden in a B-3 Division game.

The N-O field hockey season will wrap up on Tuesday as defending champion Akron and Barker both seek wins to earn a share of the title. Currently both at 10-1, Akron visits Roy-Hart (8-3) and Barker hosts Kenmore (1-10).
