CLASS D

AVOCA 5
HONEOYE 6
For the second time in as many games, Honeoye used a late-inning rally to win. Trailing 3-2 heading into the bottom of the sixth, the Bulldogs struck four times to advance to the NYS Class D Far West Regional. Honeoye erased a 4-2 deficit on Saturday to beat Arkport-Canaseraga for the school’s first sectional title since 2008. The Bulldogs will play Brocton (VI) on Saturday for a spot in the state semifinals. An 11 AM first pitch is scheduled at Dwyer Stadium. Honeoye advanced to the NYS Class C semifinals in 2008.

***Correction: An incorrect start time was reported for the Honeoye vs. Brocton game. It has since been updated.
