Sectional basketball playoffs begin this week for Orchard Park. The boys team starts it off with a home contest versus Clarence tonight at 7 p.m., while the girls will travel to Niagara Falls on Thursday.
Orchard Park (#8) and Clarence (#9) split their regular season series with each team winning at the other team’s gym. The Red Devils defeated the Quakers in the first meeting, 70-64, with the Quakers winning the second meeting, 63-48.
The winner will travel to number-one Jamestown on Friday.
The Lady Quakers (#9) will make the trip to Niagara Falls (#8) to play a Wolverine team that OP hasn’t played in at least six seasons. (MaxPreps precedes my coverage of OP sports, but is only archived to the 2006-07 season).
Coverage: I will attending the boys game tonight. For updates of the game follow: @OrchParkSports on Twitter or refresh the feed on this site.
I will not be attending the girls game and depending what happens tonight for the boys, I will not be traveling to Jamestown. I would love to, but Mike Doughty is playing in Rochester.
