#PrepTalkLive from Manhattan Cup Quarterfinal Saturday: Timon survives (with VIDEO), St. Mary's surges in second half; Canisius, Nichols win big

By Keith McShea

From Quarterfinal Friday to Quarterfinal Saturday. 

One day after Section VI set its final fours for Championship Week, it's time for the Monsignor Martin Association to do the same with today's Manhattan Cup quarterfinals: Canisius hosts its game with Niagara Catholic at noon before Nichols and Park meet at 1:30; Bishop Timon-St. Jude hosts St. Francis at noon before St. Joe's and St. Mary's play at 1:30. 

Here's a rundown of what's in store from my Prep Talk column Wednesday. You can also watch News pollster Chad Andrews and I discuss the playoff brackets on PrepTalkTV.

While I'll be at one half of the four games, we'll certainly be looking forward to your #PrepTalkLive updates from the others  via Twitter. 

Our scoreboard page has a schedule of today's games -- that same page will have box scores as games are reported to us throughout the evening.

Keep track of the action and contribute to it as well in the blog below -- the easiest way to do that is to tweet updates with the #PrepTalkLive hashtag.

We will set up blogs like this throughout the postseason -- we'll monitor games via not only our tweets, but those of high school sports fans and followers who use the #preptalklive hashtag.

We want tweets from all varsity sports every day of the week -- in every season. The #preptalklive blog (and hashtag) -- as it was during football season -- is the place to check out scores from all over Western New York.

Here is Donte Williams' end-to-end rush to win the game for Timon, plus St. Francis' last chance.

And here's the postgame show:
