Sad news for Batavia Muckdogs fans from Don Rock, head groundskeeper: He had to put down his dog, Haley, who was a familiar part of game days at Dwyer Stadium the past few years.

Rock said Haley had kidney problems.

"It was a very difficult thing for me to have to do and right now it is very rough for me, to say the least," Rock said.

Pee Wee III Ramparts: True to their Name

post by Rhonda Pangrazio in sports

Understanding that a rampart is a defensive wall that is meant to surround and strengthen, the Reed Eye Associates’ Pee Wee III Ramparts took their team name literally and showed their powerful force during several tough games.

During their recent home tournament, the Reed Eye Associates’ Pee Wee III team placed second in a solid battle versus Geneseo, Skaneateles, and Troy. Defeating Geneseo 4-0 and Skaneateles 14-0, the Pee Wee III team faced Troy during both a tournament and championship game. Troy defeated Batavia 4-2 during the tournament and later, captured the championship winning a hard fought game with a final score of 3-2. 

Stats from the weekend include:

Forward, Drew Bower:  1 goal, 3 assists

Forward, Colin Dodge: 2 goals, 2 assists

Defenseman, Derek Fedus: 2 goals, 1 assist

Forward, Zackary Geitner: 1 goal, 2 assists

Forward, Levi Grimm: 1 goal, 1 assist

Forward and Captain, Max Hutchins: 1 goal, 2 assists

Defenseman, Chase Pangrazio: 1 goal, 2 assists

Forward, Dominic Peracciny: 1 goal, 1 assist

Defenseman, Connor Peterson: 2 goals

Forward, Sean Pies: 2 assists

Defenseman, Jedidiah Reese: 6 goals

Forward, Alex Totten: 3 goals, 1 assist

Earning important points and positioning for a potential opportunity to attend states, the Reed Eye Associates’ Pee Wee III team faced and defeated Geneseo last weekend with a final score of 5-3.  Forwards, Colin Dodge and Levi Grimm, led the Ramparts with two goals each and forward, Alex Totten scored the first goal of the game to put the Ramparts on the board.  Totten would later add an assist to his day, aiding Grimm.  Forward, Dominic Peracciny led the Pee Wee III team in assists, posting an astonishing three assists for the game.  Defenseman, Connor Peterson and Chase Pangrazio would also add an assist each.

The Reed Eye Associates’ Pee Wee III team squares off against a hard-hitting Jamestown this weekend at home.  A victory against Jamestown will award the Pee Wee III Ramparts the top seed as they face the opportunity to battle for a state title.
