Week Eight

A look ahead to next weekend (Oct. 25-26), Week Eight and the beginning of the postseason:

• The Section VI playoffs begin with quarterfinal action. Among the compelling matchups include Kenmore West, a winner of five straight, hosting Lancaster, which won the teams’ matchup at Crosby Field in Week One; Grand Island taking on McKinley at a Buffalo Public Schools site to be announced – both teams are 6-1 with their only losses to Sweet Home; all Class B matchups have a significant level of intrigue; last year’s Class C first round was swept by the North (Fredonia was in the North last year).

• The Monsignor Martin Association regular season continues for two more weekends; next week’s highlight is Bishop Timon-St. Jude, coming off a nice win over Williamsville South, heading to St. Joe’s at 1 p.m. Saturday.

• The weekend lineup will also include matchups in the Chuck Funke Memorial Classic consolation games, in which teams which just missed the playoffs square off.
