The Purple Eagles hold an 11-9 lead in the all-time series against the Wildcats including a 28-7 victory last year which snapped a five game Depew win streak in the series.
Medina/Lyndoville/Barker, which is also off to a 3-0 start, opened the season with a pair of narrow B2 wins, 14-12 over Depew and 28-24 over Springville, before besting Lew-Port 28-13 last week in an interdivisional contest.

Olean has rebounded from the 37-7 opening week loss to Albion to defeat Depew 39-29 and Springville 42-14.
The return of senior quarterback Alex Weakfall, who did not play against Albion, has been a big part of the Huskies surge. He had rushing touchdowns of 58, 53 and 60 yards and an 80 yard kickoff return for a TD against Springville and three rushing TDs against Depew including a 77 yard carry.
The Huskies hold a 2-1 lead in the short series against the Mustangs including a 17-6 Consolation Bowl win last year.
Roy-Hart will be looking to snap a season opening three game losing streak at Cleve Hill which is 2-0 in the C North Division and 2-1 overall.

Jacob Affronti scored 4 touchdowns, Cody Tanis 2 and Jamel Hildreth and Dalton Moyer 1 each for the Hawks in the win over Marcus Whitman.
