MEILER: NF boys face make-or-break weekend


Niagara Gazette —

This weekend's games will give the Wolverines an opportunity to justify their lofty state ranking. Webster Schroeder upset Class AA No. 2 Fairport on Friday, 70-69 in double overtime, and Kearney, despite being in the midst of a season that hasn't gone as planned, is still a team that boasts four potential Division I players.

Coming back with two wins — along with the added experience of having to make late-game plays for only the third time this season — could mean the world to a Niagara Falls team with state-championship aspirations.
