  • Nasty weather Saturday afternoon and a gloomy forecast for the day disrupted multiple events on the area schedule, most notably the football game between Dolgeville and Mohawk.
    Dolgeville led Mohawk 14-12 at halftime Saturday in Dolgeville but play never resumed as heavy rain hit the village with thunder and lightning. The game was put on hold and the squads will return to Bynon Field Monday to play the second half at 5 p.m.
    Elsewhere, play was stopped for just over an hour in Newport before the West Canada Valley Indians resumed the first quarter of their football game against Cooperstown. The Indians went on to win 31-3.
    Two other football games were rescheduled because of the weather. Pulaski traveled to Westmoreland Sunday Afternoon and Notre Dame takes on Holland Patent Monday in Utica.
    In Waterville, the consolation and championship soccer matches for boys and girls at the Brothertown Optimist Tournament were postponed with no make-up dates announced. Little Falls’ girls were scheduled to play in their championship match while the Herkimer boys had a consolation contest, also against the host school.
    The girls were not affected at the West Canada Valley Kick-Off Tournament. West Canada Valley defeated Vernon-Verona-Sherrill Saturday morning and returned to the field Sunday to beat Mohawk 2-1 in the championship match. The boys, however, were disrupted with the opening-round match between Mohawk and Notre Dame halted five minutes into the second half, tied at 1. West Canada Valley’s boys and Canastota were postponed until Sunday while Notre Dame and Mohawk returned to Newport for penalty kicks with Notre Dame winning to earn a spot in the championship match at a later date.
    Poland got its girls’ soccer match in thanks to a change in scheduling. The Tornadoes defeated Hamilton 6-0 in the championship match at Hamilton’s Optimist Tournament after the start was moved ahead to noon.
