In the battle of two of Section V’s all-time greatest programs, Fairport took down 5-time defending Section V champs Victor 10-9 on Tuesday.

The loss is only Victor’s second to a Section V team since 2014.

The Red Raiders trailed 6-2 in the second quarter before scoring seven of the next nine goals to take a 9-8 lead into the fourth quarter.

Victor had not lost to a Section V team since an 8-5 defeat at Canandaigua on May 6, 2017. Before that, the Blue Devils last defeat to a Section V program was to the Red Raiders 11-7 back on May 15, 2014.

Fairport improves to 1-1 this season after opening the year with an 18-7 loss to Corning. Victor falls to 2-1 after beginning the season with wins over Pittsford and Irondequoit.
