Friday Night Live: Week Eight

Are you ready for some playoff football?

Of the 20 Section VI quarterfinals this weekend, 13 will be held tonight (here's the full schedule).

Actually the action gets started before the Friday Night Lights get too bright -- Niagara Catholic is at Nichols in the Monsignor Martin Association, while the Harvard Cup's 5 p.m. kickoff at All High Stadium has Riverside taking on McKinley.

Then its time for playoff action, with seven games kicking off at 7 p.m. Most notable is Grand Island's rematch with Williamsville South, which Miguel Rodriguez wrote about in today's Football Friday story. The game can be heard on WGR (550 AM).

South won a Week One matchup, 32-29, and went on to a 6-1 regular season which included its earning the No. 3 seed in Class A. GI had three straight losses to open the season -- to South, at Hamburg and at Sweet Home -- but rebounded to earn the No. 6 seed.

Also check out some links from the teams' Week One game at Thursday's Week Eight walkthrough post.

Also check out the walkthrough for what you are voting as the weekend's top game as well as the upset special -- of which there are plenty of candidates tonight.

Check back here for updates throughout the evening.

I have a LIVE BLOG from GI at Will South up and running.
