2. Girls swimming - Clarence at Orchard Park, 6 p.m.

Two of the top swimming programs in Western New York square off at Orchard Park.

Some individual talents among the Section VI leaders so far this season are Clarence's Anna Kottakis and Isabelle Lange, and Orchard Park's Katherine Jones and Megan Bouton.

The 200 and 400 freestyle relays will be extremely close races to watch for.

3. Boys soccer - D'Youville Cup doubleheader at Riverside

No. 6 small school Lafayette (9-3-1, 7-1) and McKinley (9-3-2, 7-1) play at 7 p.m. in the nightcap of a doubleheader at Riverside. They're currently tied atop Division I.

The Violets are on a four-game winning streak since losing back-to-back nonleague games. Their lone league loss came against McKinley, 4-0, back on Aug. 31. The Macks lost their league game to I-Prep, 3-1, but avenged that with a 3-0 win over the Presidents on Sept. 28.

No. 2 I-Prep/Grover (7-5-1, 5-3) plays honorable mention Riverside (8-6, 3-5) first at 5 p.m. The Presidents won the first round, 5-1.

4. Girls soccer - Olean at Maple Grove, 4:30 p.m.

No. 1 small school Maple Grove (15-0, 9-0) looks to close out its regular season with a perfect record against No. 10 Olean (10-4-1, 7-2)

The Red Dragons have only given up one goal in the last seven games and five total all season. They beat Olean on Sept. 21, 3-0. Adrianna Carlson (27 goals, 12 assists) and Clare Crossley (16 goals, 15 assists) are the offensive standouts.

The Huskies won five games in a row after the loss to Maple Grove, but had that streak snapped in a 2-1 loss at Section V's Hornell. Fourth-year junior Calista Heister is second in Section VI in goals with 32 on the season.

Honor roll
- Girls soccer: Starpoint at Williamsville East, 7 p.m.
