In ECS soccer, the varsity boys continued their winning ways over the last week, finishing the week 2-0. The team beat Franklinville 3-0 and Salamanca 3-1. The boys are now 9-3 overall and 8-2 in league play. The boys’ modified program improved their record to 8-1 with a 7-1 victory over Salamanca.

The varsity girls’ soccer team finished the week with a 2-1 record, with victories over Randolph 3-2 and West Valley 3-2, and a 3-0 loss to Allegany-Limestone. The JV soccer girls finished the week 0-2, with losses to Allegany-Limestone and Holland. The modified girls also finished the week with a 0-2 record with losses to Allegany-Limestone and Randolph.

The Ellicottville-Franklinville varsity football team lost a heartbreaking game to the Randolph Cardinals on Friday night 28-0. The varsity squad is hosting a Homecoming game this Friday versus the Cattaraugus-Little Valley Timberwolves and the outright sole possession of second place in class D Football. The JV football squad took on the Cardinals on Monday night and raced out to a 28-14 win. The JV squad is 5-0 and takes on Cattaraugus-Little Valley next Tuesday at Catt/LV at 4:30pm.

The Ellicottville Little Eagles Pee Wee program finished the season 6-0 with a victory over the Springville Griffins. The Eagles are the No. 1 seed in the Pee Wee division and will host the second round of the playoffs at ECS on Oct. 19 with a 1:30 p.m. start. The Ellicottville Midget squad lost a hard-fought battle to the Springville Griffins 7-0 and finished the season at 4-2. They earned the No. 5 seed in the playoffs and take on the Salamanca Sabers at 3 p.m. this Saturday in Franklinville.

The Ellicottville Sports Boosters will be parking cars at the Signore property on Route 219 and could use some help. The times are 10 a.m.–6 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. This is one of their major fundraisers for the year, as they are always helping the student athletes. So far, the Booster Club has purchased new homerun fences for the softball diamond, Eagles banners for the sports complex and state title banners for the new gym. They have helped all sports teams run or attend sport-specific clinics, and they have donated all the food for all the sports banquets for the past few years. In conjunction with the Little Eagles football program, they are investing in the new sound system for the athletic complex at ECS. This was a major undertaking and cost well over $3,000. The Ellicottville Little Eagles will also be running their concession stand at Fall Festival, which will be located in front of Coffee Culture. This will help the football program purchase new equipment for the future, as they continue to buy new and improved gear to keep the kids safe in football. We hope that everyone can come out and support these two fine organizations!
