“We’ve been playing better lately, trying to cut down on unforced errors, and we did a good job on that,” Brocton-Westfield coach Andy Deakin said. “Dunkirk did a nice job fighting back after the first two games, but we got the momentum in the fifth game and were able to hold on to it.”
Sophia DeMarco led the Lady Bulldogs (2-15, 2-9) with 13 kills, five aces, three blocks, two assists and one dig. “DeMarco played a really strong game at the net,” Deakin said.
Jypsi Eidens chipped in seven kills, seven aces and two blocks for Brocton-Westfield.

NORTH COLLINS — North Collins (8-6 overall, 7-4 league) defended the Eagles’ nest on Tuesday as it swept Fredonia (3-10, 3-8) 3-0: 25-19, 25-11, 25-17.
MaKenna Williams set up the Eagles in the CCAA North matchup with 20 assists as Deanne Wilson had 10 kills and Irene Macaluso had eight kills.
For Fredonia, Mackenzie Markham had two kills, three blocks and three digs.
“We played very well tonight,” North Collins coach Dave Burgstahler said. “We had all of our players healthy and eligible to play, that was key. We played some of the best defense that we played in a while. We still made error, but we were more aggressive going after the ball. MaKenna set a great game. She is only a freshman. She is set a good game.”
Burgstahler is usually cautious after wins, however, in the win on Tuesday, the coach saw a strong team meeting its peak.
“It’s progressions,” he said. “It’s continuing to work hard at practice. We have everybody healthy and able to attend. That helps a lot.”
North Collins will travel to Dunkirk to face the Marauders on Thursday and Fredonia will host Gowanda on Wednesday.

Logan stated that his team struggled with passing and had unforced errors that attributed to Forestville’s strong play.
