Saturday Sports Update
Top: While they were not successful in booking a trip this weekend to the Carrier Dome, the Dunkirk Marauders in 2016 were successful in just about every other way possible. This afternoon, the City of Dunkirk is holding a parade to celebrate the team's achievement of winning the school's first ever Section VI high school football championship and making it to the New York State Class B semifinals. Not bad for a team that started the season 0-2!
Bottom left: Look for this face to be on the field for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Sammy Watkins has missed the last two months with a recurring foot injury, but he was able to practice all week, and head coach Rex Ryan plans on playing the 3rd-year receiver against Jacksonville. The team today added Watkins to the active roster.
Bottom right: Ryan O'Reilly tries to fire a shot past Thomas Grubauer during the Buffalo Sabres' game against the Washington Capitals on Friday at the Verizon Center. The Caps' backup goalie was a rock in net, making 32 saves as they defeated the Sabres by a 3-1 score. Sam Reinhart scored the only goal of the game for Buffalo. Photo by the Buffalo News
