>Reed's 14 saves help Frontier
Replacing an All-Western New York goalie isn't easy but Frontier's Krissy Lynn Reed seems up to it.
Reed stopped 14 of 19 shots and Jackie Sickora had three goals and four assists as the Falcons ran their overall record to 2-0 with a 14-5 ECIC I victory over Iroquois on Wednesday.
Coach Tim Myslinski's team is hoping to return to the Section VI Class A playoffs despite the loss of ECIC I scoring leader Katie Henderson and All-WNY goalie Jessica Raniero. Frontier made the playoffs for the first time last year, losing to Clarence in the quarterfinals.
Elsewhere in girls lacrosse, junior Alexandra Weinholtz scored eight goals, giving her 105 in her varsity career, as she led Niagara-Wheatfield over West Seneca East, 12-4, in a Division II match.
>Weather allows a few games
With the weather warming slightly and fields slowly beginning to dry, a handful of baseball and softball teams were able to get back into action.
Albion opened its Niagara-Orleans League baseball schedule with a 16-0 win over Barker as Justin Ward pitched a three-hitter and Jeff Andalora (3 for 5) and Dave Pilon (2 for 2) combined for five RBIs.
In a Niagara-Orleans League softball opener, winning pitcher Erica Horvagh and Caroline Augustiniak had three hits each and combined for three RBIs in Wilson's 13-5 triumph over Akron.
In ECIC II girls softball, Kaitlin George drove in three runs with three hits as Iroquois defeated Amherst, 7-1.
In Niagara-Orleans League tennis action, Medina -- which had to replace its two top singles players from last year's N-O championship team -- just squeaked past Newfane, 3-2 1/2 , in boys tennis.
Defending State Class A champion Williamsville South, Section VI Class AA runner-up Kenmore West and defending Monsignor Martin Association champion Sacred Heart are among the 21 teams entered in the 24th Lady Jacks Tournament, which will open Friday at the Edward Belbas Fields in North Tonawanda. In last year's tournament Kenmore West ended Williamsville South's 78-game winning streak against Western New York opponents, 2-1.
