MIDGET FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Southside took all three games in the Varsity Division, the Modified Division and the Jayvee Division by beating the Northside at Washington Middle School.
The 2013 midget football league season began Saturday. Clockwise, from the top left, Southside’s Dante Garland looks for running room and Northside’s Avante Hicks finds plenty of daylight during Jamestown Area varsity action; Bemus Point’s Darius Jones returns a kickoff for a touchdown in a Lake Shore League game against Chautauqua Lake; and Northside’s Samuel Harrison appears to be in the clear in a Jamestown Area junior varsity game.
