Michael Wright (78) and Zack Daniels (30) go side by side through turn 1 and keep it up for many laps during the practice session. The racecars would be back on track for their second practice of the season as the tracks look forward to hopefully having actual races in the near future with the COVID-19 pandemic putting a hold to racing activate at the track. With the practice, you would have guys shaking cars down in the 358 Modified, Sportsman Modifieds, Renegades, and the Strictly Stock division. With all the cars there we would have somewhere in the 30s for cars that would take part in the event. Now it's just a waiting game for the drivers and teams on what's to happen next at the racetrack. Gallery

Beekmantowns Gavin Fessette (25) puts pressure on a Grand Island defenseman after losing possession in the offensive zone. The Beekmantown boys hockey team was unable to hold off its highly ranked opposition Saturday, falling 4-2 to Grand Island at the Ronald B. Stafford Ice Arena. The game began well for the home team, as the Eagles held the Vikings - ranked No. 2 in Division 2 by the New York State Sportswriters Association - scoreless in the first period. Beekmantown added to that defensive effort with a Collin Latinville goal midway through the second period to take the lead. That lead was short-lived, though, as Grand Island scored a powerplay goal less than 5 minutes later to tie the game and tacked on an even-strength tally before the end of the period. Mounting a comeback became a more difficult task for Eagles only 21 seconds into the third period, as Grand Island captain Brian ONeill hit a sniping shot from the blue line for his second goal of the day. With 11 minutes remaining in the game, Dylan Bush made the lead 4-1 for the Vikings. Beekmantown looked to take advantage of special teams play to get back in the game, as a flurry of penalties - including a major for the board by Bush - gave the Eagles a 4-on-3 power play. A Grand Island defenseman pushed Gavin Fessette into Vikings goaltender Bobbie Currie with the puck approaching the crease, giving Alex Brienza an open net to shoot at to double the Eagles' score. That comeback effort fell short, though, as Grand Island maintained their undefeated record by a final score of 4-2. Gallery
