Week Nine wrapup: Highlights and a look ahead


From the Friday Night Lights to Saturday afternoon homecoming games, BuffaloNews.com is the place to keep track of all of Western New York’s football action every weekend. Review our #PrepTalkLive coverage from several of this weekend’s contests.

Check out our video report from Frontier’s 17-7 Class AA semifinal victory over Orchard Park that sent the Falcons to the Section VI championships at Ralph Wilson Stadium for the first time since 1984. It includes interviews with Kenny Kahler, A.J. Licata and coach Tim Myslinski. A proud Myslinski only lamented that the Falcons won’t be able to play at home anymore. “This mud,” he says in one clip, “is in our blood.”

There are also video reports from wins this weekend by Canisius, Alden, Depew and Jamestown along with photo galleries and live blogs which document how the action transpired.

For more details on several games, review our high school scoreboard page.
