A week of festivities was capped off in grand fashion Friday night under the lights in Alexander.

 

The night started with a homecoming parade that featured floats from the high school classes as well as the Tri-Town organization's football players and cheerleaders that started at the Alexander Volunteer Fireman's Recreation Hall and ended at the high school football field.

 

Attendance was high as the Alexander community turned out in force to cheer on the hometown Trojans.

The game itself found Alexander (2-1 heading into tonight) besting Attica (3-0 prior to the game) by a score of 30-15.

 

Dylan Scharlau had two touchdowns and added a couple of two-point conversions.

Sam Brown returned a punt 80 yards for a touchdown.

 

Nelson Burke added a touchdown and a pair of two-point conversions. Zach Laird also scored for Alexander.

 

Scoring for Attica were Derek Walker and Zach Kozma.

The Batavia Bulldawgs varsity squad made it to the NOFA championships after an amazing season of youth football. 

Meeting BarLyn Saturday in Medina, the Bulldawgs took the field on a cold and rainy night under the lights on artificial turf.

Unfortunately for Batavia, the BarLyn team played like a team possessed and brought the ball on the ground and air in wave after wave.

Edward Schildt of BarLyn had six touchdowns, one extra point and three interceptions. 

Eric Neace Jr. added two touchdowns for BarLyn with Christian Wolck receiving a pass for a two-point conversion.

The Bulldawg's lone score came from a long touchdown run by Demetrius Spinks.

Congratulations to the Bulldawgs on a great season!

NOTE: Rick actually submitted this article yesterday morning and we neglected to put it on the home page. Apologies to Rick and the fans of Pembroke soccer.

The Pembroke Boys Varsity Soccer team started its regular season at home Tuesday with a league game against Kendall. After a slow first half where they gave up three goals, the Dragons came out strong in the second half, scoring their first goal of the season.

Sophomore Collin Lewis got the goal on an assist from Gabe Birkby. Coach Burch and the boys were very upbeat after the game, having played a very solid game against a strong opponent. The final score was 3-1. Next Dragons game is Friday 9/9 at 4:30 p.m. at Lyndonville. Go here to see more photos of the game.
