Marcellus continues mastery over Solvay

Westhill shut out by Cortland in season opener

Much of Friday night's football opener between Marcellus and Solvay was an evenly fought contest, with an exchange of scoring plays and plenty of excitement. But it didn’t start out that way – and because of that, the Mustangs still have possession of the Tom Anthony Silver Cup, and the Bearcats, desperate for a turnaround, was denied again in a 41-21 defeat.

For the Cazenovia field hockey team to go to Fayetteville-Manlius and win a season-opening tournament on Aug. 28-29 was a nice development, though far from surprising.
