Sunday Sports: Rapids take a break, changes on the way in Section 3 Football

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - The Watertown Rapids were taking a break from their Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League schedule Sunday, hosting the Capital City Reds from Ottawa.

The Reds a 22U college travel team comprised of players from the US and Canada and they would get on the board in the top of the 1st on a sacrafice fly to right field to go up 1-0.

Th the bottom of the first, the Rapids tie it when Vinnie Derubies gets all of his offering and takes it over the wall in left field for a solo home run, knotting the game at 1.

Rapids starter Kenny Sysyn settled down after a shaky 1st inning, getting a strikeout at the top of the 2nd.

The Capital City Reds beat the Rapids with a final score of 11-4.

Practice for the 2019 Section 3 high school football season begins in a little less than a month, and for two area schools, there will be some big changes ahead in the upcoming season.

The ever changing landscape in Section 3 continues this season and directly effects a couple of north country teams.

For the Indian River warriors, Section 3 Class A will have a whole new look, with both Fulton and Jamesville Dewitt dropping down to the developmental league and Watertown moving to Section 10, leaving Class A with only 6 teams and one division in 2019.

Another area team dealing with change will be the General Brown Lions.

A longtime member of the Section 3 Class C North Division, General Brown moves to the Section 3 Class C West Division and will compete against Syracuse area schools. That change due in part to Thousand Islands moving to Class D and Lowville moving to the Section 3 Class C East Division.

Both teams are hoping for continued success despite the new look to their schedules this season.
