LOCKPORT —

“We prepared for this one all week because we knew they’d be tough,” Sweeney said. “We adjusted a few kids and caught them off guard with that, but Joe does a great job and his fill-ins did a nice job against our tough kids.”
Coach Scapelliti said he expected a close match.
“It was as close as we expected. They’re a really good team and they’re improving tremendously as the year goes on,” Scapelliti said. “ We knew what we were in for tonight.”
The Lions return to league action today with a match against Kenmore East. They host once-beaten Lew-Port in their league finale at 5 p.m. next Wednesday.
