Glen Graham was on the sidelines as an assistant when former Cleveland Hill head coach Dennis Mason secured his 100th win at the school.
The roles were reversed on Saturday.
In a 60-10 Eagles win over Allegany-Limestone in the Section VI Class C quarterfinals, Graham earned the 100th victory in his 14th year as head coach with Mason alongside as an assistant on the s…
LACKAWANNA – The Lackawanna Steelers know firsthand how dangerous a No. 8 seed can be in the playoffs.
The Steelers were in that spot last year and put it all together as the plucky underdog when they took out top-seeded Medina in last year's Section VI Tournament.
Given that several key members of that team helped the current edition earn a No. 1 seed for this sea…
LACKAWANNA – In a clash between two of the top defensive teams in Class B, Lackawanna's combination of speed and strength proved to be too much for Pioneer as the top-seeded Steelers overwhelmed their foe, 32-0, in a Section VI Class B quarterfinal game Saturday.
Senior quarterback Noble Smith scored on three relatively short touchdown runs, while senior running back …

Jamestown coach Tom Langworthy didn’t have to go for two in the second overtime. His Red Raiders scored on a 9-yard pass the previous play and trailed Clarence, 52-51. He just couldn’t turn down a chance to win from the 2-yard line, even in a high-pressure playoff situation.
“That’s just one of my philosophies,” Langworthy said. “You have to have the courage…
PENDLETON -- Much like his running style on the field, C.J. Perillo didn't hold anything back when he was asked how he felt following his team's playoff game at Tudor Stadium.
"I'm exhausted," the Iroquois senior said, "absolutely done. I need about six months recovery."
Perillo won't have that much time, as he'll have only six days.
He has only himself to blame f…
Kasey Hollins scored on a penalty kick in the fourth overtime to give Orchard Park a 2-1 win over Frontier in the Class AA girls soccer quarterfinals. Clarence dominated Niagara Falls, 9-0, to move on and face the Quakers in the semifinals.
On the other side of the bracket, Erin Weir and Samantha Maghrak each scored twice in Niagara Wheatfield’s 4-1 win over Lockport.…
PENDLETON – Iroquois didn't just have a workhorse lining up in its backfield Friday. It had what coach Rob Pitzonka called his version of "Secretariat" to gallop through holes.
Yet, C.J. Perillo didn't just leave tacklers in the dust. He dragged a few and bowled over some in delivering another post 200-yard rushing effort. That helped carry the third-seeded Chiefs pas…
The girls volleyball seasons for Emerson and South Park have been canceled following an ugly brawl in which five teens were arrested after an Oct. 13 match at South Park.
According to police, multiple students were injured when a majority of the Emerson team was assaulted by South Park students outside the gym. A portion of the fight was captured on school security came…
