Week Six Saturday with #PrepTalkLive: Cheektowaga beats Burgard in thriller to clinch B North title (with VIDEO)

By Keith McShea

Week Six Saturday is a fairly limited lineup, but there are some nice matchups, headlined by a top five small schools matchup that will determine the Class B North title as No. 3 Burgard is at No. 5 Cheektowaga at 2 p.m. I'll have play-by-play along with scoring and end-of-quarter updates via Twitter (with the hashtag #BURGvCHK).

Other 2 p.m. games we'll definitely be keeping an eye on: Sweet Home at Kenmore East at Sparky Adams Field in Class A North, Medina at Bennett at All High Stadium in B North, and Bishop Timon-St. Jude at Canisius in the Monsignor Martin Association. The weekend's last game at 7:30 p.m. has Alden at Olean in a game with the host Huskies needing an upset win to help their playoff hopes in Class B South.

Check out my blog on the playoff picture for more on what today's Section VI games mean. Friday night did clear up some situations.

We encourage you to tweet updates with the hashtag #preptalklive attached -- that's the quickest way for us to share the information through the live chat (tweets with that hashtag will automatically show up -- our old friend #preptalkscores will work as well). 

Our high school scoreboard page will have the final scores and details as soon as they are reported to us.
