HS FOOTBALL: several teams remain classified by the State | Sports


The New York State Sportswriters Association released its second compilation of rankings for the 2021 high school football season on Tuesday and a number of local programs were re-selected.

Leading for the second week in a row, Medina, the defending Section V champion, Class C. After another easy win – this one 34-16 over Lackawanna – the Mustangs take first place for the second week in a row as ‘they remained dominant undefeated.

In three games, Medina has averaged nearly 43 points per game and has given up just 22.

The race, however, doesn’t appear to be easy as Medina will meet undefeated Akron – the No. 4 Class C team in the NYSSWA standings – next week in Akron, while undefeated rival Albion waits in the final week of the regular season.

Also in Class C, after a season opener loss to defending Class B champion Honeoye Falls-Lima, the Livonia rebounded well with a pair of wins. The Bulldogs remained at No.7 in the state after a 40-7 slash from Midlakes last weekend. The week before Livonia edged Bath to claim their first win of the season.

It doesn’t look like the Bulldogs will be put to the test again ahead of the sectional tournament with a game against Letchworth / Warsaw possibly their toughest game remaining.

Remaining in class C, Le Roy once again received an honorable mention. After a tough loss to ER / Gananda – currently the No. 8 ranked Class C team in the state – the Oatkan Knights rebounded in a big way last week with outright destruction of the previously undefeated Hornell. With another strong defense allowing just 24 points in three games, Le Roy also looks like he won’t be tested until the section period, with the exception of a home game against Attica. 2-1 in the penultimate week of the regular. season.

Le Roy will be in Mynderse without a win this week.

In class B, unbeaten Batavia leads the way for local teams as the Blue Devils 3-0 arrive this week at No.6. Batavia has moved up one spot from last week after its third straight win to start the season , 42-0 in Geneva. The Blue Devils managed to make the jump due to a loss to Bayport-Blue Point in Section XI.

In the first three weeks of the season, the Blue Devils beat their opponents 124-8. With what should be an easy win this week against Palmyra-Macedonia, Batavia will likely not be tested until a game with HF-L on October 8.

Also in Class B, Section VI’s Albion also finds himself once again ranked, arriving this week at No.15 as the Purple Eagles 3-0 earned a spot. Albion crushed Wilson 42-16 of Section VI last week.

With their next four opponents having achieved just three wins this season – including 1-2 Burgard this week – the Purple Eagles will try not to anticipate a regular end-of-season clash with their rival Medina, who is also expected to be undefeated in this season. match. .

The new Dansville / Wayland-Cohocton combined makes its second appearance in the standings this season as it enters the Honorable Mention selection for the second consecutive week. Dansville / Way-Co lost their first game of the season last week to Wayne, but is still 2-1 heading into a clash with Bishop Kearney / Rochester Prep this weekend.

In Class D, Avon faced Alexander 12-10 last Friday night, which allowed defending Class D champion Braves to stay at No. 3 in the Class D poll.

The route des Braves, however, will not be easy to navigate. Starting this week with what should be an important game with Caledonia-Mumford / Byron-Bergen, Avon will also have games with undefeated Oakfield-Alabama / Elba and Bolivar-Richburg once beaten in their last five weeks.

The aforementioned Alexander dropped two places this week after the loss to Avon, dropping from No.8 to No.10 at 2-1. The schedule for the rest of the way for the Trojans seems a little less intimidating than Avon’s, with a game with struggling rival Notre Dame and an end-of-season contest with Cal-Mum / BB improving his best contests. .

Alexander is in Cuba-Rushford / Hinsdale this week.

Oddly enough, even with what turned out to be another resounding victory last week, the undefeated Oakfield-Alabama / Elba has yet to reach the Top 15, winning an honorable mention selection again this week. For three weeks, the Aggies have been as dominant as anyone in Section V, overtaking their opponents 166-13, but their schedule will also become more difficult.

After a winless game against York / Pavilion this week, OA / Elba will play games with Cal-Mum / BB, Avon and Bolivar-Richburg among their last four of the regular season.

Another dominant victory after a season opener loss to Le Roy brought Cal-Mum / BB at 2-1 and also won an honorable mention selection. The Raiders have beaten their last two opponents 70-0 and will now get four Monster Tests in their last five games.

Starting Friday with Avon, the Raiders will also meet OA / Elba, Bolivar-Richburg and Alexander in the final five weeks of the season.

In eight-a-side football, 2-0 Pembroke went from No.5 to No.4 after being inactive last weekend. The Dragons will be the reigning Red Jacket champion this weekend.
