Lackawanna League girls soccer will get underway in one division while Lackawanna boys soccer will try again with one division, making Wednesday the first day that any league action takes place in the sport this fall.

Honesdale is at defending champion Lakeland, Montrose is at West Scranton and Mountain View is at Western Wayne.

Division 1 of boys soccer will try again with North Pocono at Scranton Prep and Abington Heights at Honesdale.

A day after outdoor activities were wiped out by weather, every sport except football has multiple events taking place.

Dallas (3-0) is at Wyoming Area (2-1) in a Wyoming Valley Conference match between the No. 3 and No. 4 Small School teams in the Riverfront Sports Super Six Girls Tennis Power Rankings of District 2 teams.

Dallas is also third and Wyoming Area fourth out of 17 teams in the race for qualification and seeding in the district Class 2A tournament.

Western Wayne (5-1) is at first-place Scranton Prep (6-0) in a Lackawanna League Class 2A Division golf match.

The Wildcats are one of five teams with one loss in the division.

Lackawanna League girls volleyball began with three matches Tuesday. Two more teams open when Elk Lake plays at Mountain View.

Field hockey is not yet to the stage of league play, but it does have three games pitting teams in the same playoff race against each other, including Dallas going into District 4 to serve as the opponent for the opener by Selinsgrove. Both teams will be maneuvering for seeds in the District 2-4 Class 2A Subregional at the end of the season.

District 2 Class 2A teams meet when Pittston Area plays at Crestwood and Class 3A teams square off with Tunkhannock at Honesdale.

The girls soccer schedule also includes a non-league game sending Lake-Lehman to Wilkes-Barre Area.
