Leading off today:
Top-ranked Victor and No. 5 Pittsford are heading to a rematch Saturday with the Section 5 Class AA football championship on the line.
Those teams combined to rush for 785 yards Sunday in the semifinals at Rhinos Stadium. Victor blanked McQuaid 28-0 and Pittsford eliminated No. 21 Fairport 27-7.
Bucknell-bound Pittsford senior Marquis Carter carried 35 times for 187 yards and two touchdowns. Before that, Victor's Zack Estabrooks ran for two scores and Mitch Spindler carried 18 times for 141 yards, including a 74-yard run for a touchdown.
Victor defeated Pittsford 42-15 in Week 3.
"We each have a big chip on our shoulders, we feel like not a lot of teams respect us," Victor senior Mike Novitsky told the Democrat and Chronicle. "We're trying to make it very clear again."

Soccer semifinals on hold: A lightning delay that began shortly after halftime led to the Section 8 boys Class AA soccer semifinals being suspended. The contest between Massapequa and Syosset was scoreless with 31 minutes to play and the other scheduled semi between Hicksville and Calhoun at Adelphi was postponed.
They'll try again Monday at a site to be determined.

Girls soccer: Nardin Academy edged Nichols 5-4 in penalty kicks after overtime ended in a 2-2 tie for the Monsignor Martin Association Class A championship at Niagara University.
Nardin goalkeeper Emma Zielinski' only save in penalty kicks came in the first round, but that's all the junior needed as her teammates connected on all five attempts.
The Gators will return to Niagara on Saturday for a state Class A semifinal game.
