The top-seeded Webutuck High School girls soccer team will face second-seeded Pine Plains in the Section 9 Class C final at 6 p.m. Friday at the Hudson Valley Sportsdome in Milton.
Webutuck came out with a 1-0 semifinals win over fifth-seeded Onteora at the Sportsdome on Wednesday, while Plains came away with a 3-0 win over sixth-seeded Spackenkill in the semifinals.
“We’re really excited to go (to the final),” Webutuck coach Hannah Peters said. The Warriors improved to 10-3. “It’s the first time we’re going in as the number one seed.”
Julia Butts scored the Warriors’ lone goal on an assist from Sophia Caldas. Sophia Thomasetti made one save in goal.
Katie Gomm, Alexis Reilly and Rachael Beam each scored to lead the Bombers to their semifinal win. Courtney Conley and Nicole Reilly both made assists. Alice Wilser and Amanda Simmons split time in goal. Each recorded one save.
“I was really pleased with our play,” said Pine Plains coach Debbie Beam, whose Bombers improved to 8-7-1. “Things are starting to look good. We’re really peaking in the postseason.
“We can’t wait to get another shot at Webutuck. We played them at the beginning of September and lost the division because we lost that game. We’re looking forward to the rematch.”
Spackenkill goalie Elizabeth Schwoerer made five saves. The Spartans finished their season 2-11-3.
Third-seeded Goshen shutout second-seeded host Red Hook 2-0 in the Section 9 Class C semifinals.
“At the end of the season you just want to walk off the field with your head high and today we did that,” said Red Hook coach Jason Pavlich in a statement. “We held in there as long as we could and even generated a few good looks, but couldn’t convert. In the end we lost to a better team.”
The Raiders finished the season 13-2-1.
