High School Play of the Week Videos Sponsored by Connors & Ferris
The playoffs are a time of celebration, but also a time of heartbreak.
Some seasons continued, some came to a sudden end on Saturday.
On the football field, Section VI continued it's dominance of Section V right up until the last game of the weekend. After sweeping both contests yesterday, Buffalo area schools won the first two games of the day Saturday. Cleveland Hill topped Way-Co in Class C 46-20 before Depew beat Geneva 29-9 in Class B.
Aquinas and Jamestown are in progress in the Class AA game, with the Lil Irish leading 28-12 in the third.
Section V has enjoyed much more success on the pitch, and that continued Saturday. Fairport, Pittsford Mendon, and Jasper Troupsburg all advanced to the boys soccer finals. Honeoye Falls-Lima and Jasper Troupsburg will represent Section V in the girls finals as well.
The success continued on the volleyball court, as Mercy and Pittsford Sutherland advanced to the Class AA and A finals respectively.
And finally the Brighton field hockey team advanced to the Class B final with an overtime win Saturday.

Game Changer of the Week Sponsored byMark`s Pizzeria
Gary Brown was the epitome of the saying, "Once a Raider, Always a Raider" according to legendary Fairport Football Coach Don Santini. "He was just a one of kind. His love for Fairport and Fairport Athletics was just unbelievable."
On Sept 7th,Gary Brown lost his fight to MSA (Multiple Systems Atrophy) a very rare disease similar to Lou Gehrig's Disease.
Gary "Gator" Brown played football for Coach Santini and Fairport Football in 1975 and 1976. He was also known around town for beating his big drum at every Fairport Football and Basketball game, especially at the Little Brown Jug games vs. East Rochester.
In his later years, Gary coached Fairport Football for over ten years and made a tremendous impact in the lives of the players, fellow coaches, and even parents and fans. While the Fairport community faces another incredible loss, they are humbled and proud to have had Gary Brown be one of them for so long. Gary is survived by his beautiful wife, Mary and boys; Max, Mackenzie and Michael. RIP Gary Brown as Fairport proudly continues your tradition. Once a Raider Always a Raider.
