Sports: A Visit from NFL Pros, Sectionals Lacrosse Match Up

Posted: Updated:

Two frontier league rivals found themselves facing off the first round of Section III's playoffs Saturday.

The Indian River Warriors boys lacrosse found the edge at home against the South Jefferson Spartans 6-5.

The game would end with the Spartans scoring with two minutes left in the game to pull within one goal, but time would run out before the game could be tied. 

-------

It's not often that a pair of all-pro offensive linemen from the NFL make a stop in the north country, but that was the case Saturday evening in Massena.

Pittsburgh Steelers' Alejandro Villanueva and David Decastro made a stop at the Massena Boys and Girls Club for a meet and greet and took time to sign autographs..

Villanueva, a former 10th Mountain Division Soldier is in the area for a reunion of his west point class.

Villanueva has fond memories of the area and says he feels its important for him to give back to the community he once called home, even if it was for a short period of time.
