> City Honors volleyball adds to streaks

The City Honors girls volleyball team opened league play on Monday by adding to some already impressive numbers. The Centaurs beat South Park in three games to win their 242nd straight match and 634th straight game in the Buffalo Public Schools. Chandra Roberson had nine kills and Ashleigh Then had nine aces among her 21 service points for City Honors, winners of the last 20 league titles.

> Williamsville North toughs one out

Williamsville North may have beaten Jamestown, 5-2, in a girls soccer game, but the Spartans had to rally twice. North came back from 1-0 and 2-1 deficits for the ECIC I win. "It was not a typical 5-2 game. The score doesn't reflect how difficult the game was," said North coach Dan Greiner. Hillary Jacobson had two goals and two assists for North.

Danielle Pigeon banked a shot in off the post as Depew scored in double overtime to salvage a 1-1 tie with Cheektowaga in ECIC III. . . . No. 1 small school and defending league champ East Aurora shut out No. 8 Eden, 4-0, in ECIC IV.

> Flames goalkeeper stays hot

Nick Salvatore recorded his fifth shutout of the season and his fourth in a row as Williamsville East beat Depew, 6-0, in boys soccer. Jason Tartick scored three goals for the Flames, the defending ECIC II and Class A champions.

Wilson and Roy-Hart entered their Niagara-Orleans League game with undefeated records and remained that way after playing to a 1-1 tie.

> Etcetera

In a rematch of last year's Section VI Class B finalists, Eden beat Cheektowaga, 25-13, 25-15, in boys volleyball. Sam Beiter had 10 kills and three aces for the Raiders (9-1). . . . Matt Stasiak of Clarence, medalist of the Section VI golf tournament in the spring, had three birdies at Park CC on his way to a 9-hole score of 33 in the Red Devils' 278-327 win over Amherst. . . . The West Seneca West football team will host an inaugural Alumni Night on Friday at 7:30 at West's field. All Alumni will receive free admission and the 1985 co-championship team will be honored at halftime. . . . Olean quarterback Justin George, who was injured during last Friday's game against Lackawanna and taken by ambulance to a hospital, is "doing fine and expected to play" this week, according to coach Mike Kane. George suffered spasms in his lower back and felt some numbness in his legs after making a tackle. George was at practice Monday and expects to be cleared to play after a checkup today with his family doctor. Olean hosts Fredonia at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
