The Fall II season officially kicked off this week with football and volleyball teams getting their first games of the compressed 2021 season. 

Football

March 19

Livonia 36, Penn Yan/Dundee 18

Livonia doubled the Mustangs' opening score in the season opener. The Mustangs' next game is at home against Waterloo on Friday. It will be an early game, with kick-off at 4 p.m. as Whitman/Bloomfield are scheduled to use the field for their game against Wellsville later that evening.

Haverling 22, Marcus Whitman/Bloomfield 0

In their opening game, the newly-combined Whitman/Bloomfield team played the Haverling Rams at Penn Yan Academy. Though the game began with strong back-and-forth play, the Rams grabbed two touchdowns and a conversion to put the score at 14-0 at halftime. Despite what seemed to be a boost in energy for the Wildcats coming into the third quarter, Whitman had several turnovers in the second half and was unable to put any points on the board, allowing Haverling to expand their lead and take the win. Whitman plays their next game, also using Penn Yan as a temporary home field, on Friday against Wellsville.
