The Section VI soccer season will come down to nine games this weekend.
On what should be a terrific soccer Saturday at Amherst, three of the four large-school games will feature matchups between teams from the same league, with Williamsville East seeking titles in the girls and boys games. Friday evening's Class B doubleheader, also at Amherst, has an intriguing matchup on the boys side and a almost-couldn't-be-farther-apart-geographically battle on the girls side. Maple Grove has both of its teams in the Class C finals while in Class D, the Ellicottville girls will try to beat North Collins for the championship (after the North Collins boys beat Ellicottville in that final last week).
