Looking Ahead

With almost fifty games scheduled for this week, there will certainly be some good ones. The Finger Lakes League will play their tournament starting on Tuesday. There should be some good games in round two on Thursday. Among our picks are:

  • Tuesday: HF-L at Greece Storm, Bath at McQuaid, Brighton at Pittsford, Thomas at Schroeder and Canandaigua at Penfield.

  • Thursday: Bath at Aquinas, Penn Yan at Fairport, HF-L at Schroeder, McQuaid at Irondequoit and Spencerport at Brighton.

  • Friday: Hamburg at Canandaigua. 

  • Saturday: Aquinas at Brighton, Eastridge at Livonia-Avon, Spencerport at Irondequoit, and three out of Section games: Thomas at B-Ville, Victor at F-M and OP at Pittsford.

These are just some of the games of interest this week. Of course, if your team is playing it is the game of the week.
