Kenmore West prepared to host Lancaster|Ken West, Ken East prepare for playoff matchups


Tonawanda News — According to head coach Matt Chimera, health and effort will be crucial for the Bulldogs as they aim to end the Panthers’ 67-game winning streak against Section VI opponents.

“We had some guys get hurt against Kenmore West last week, so hopefully we get some of those guys back this week,” Chimera said. “We also put out a great effort against Sweet Home the last time we played them, and I think that’s one of the reasons why we kept the score close through three quarters against them. We need to go into this game with the same mindset we had two weeks ago.”

Junior running back Kurt McGowan also noted that focus and execution — which was lacking for the team against Ken West — needed to be better heading into the postseason.

“We didn’t really have a great week of practice going into the Blue Devils game, so hopefully this week goes a lot better than last week did,” McGowan said. “If we beat Sweet Home, that would be huge for us. We’ll see.”
