Millbrook coach Sean McGuigan credited Aimee Jacques, Arianna Radovic and Sophia Bucklin for playing a great game, but the fourth-seeded Blazers fell to top-seeded S.S. Seward 2-0 in a Section 9 Class C semifinal game on the road.

“Overall the whole team played pretty well, we just couldn’t score,” McGuigan said. “Seward is a very good team with a lot of skilled players. We played well, but we just couldn’t finish. We had some opportunities but couldn’t put it in the net.

“I don’t think our record (3-9-3) reflected exactly how good we played (this season). The girls did well this year. We are a very young team and have a lot of stuff to work through, but the girls stuck through it. We made sectionals and the girls worked hard to make it. We look forward for next year.”

Chester 4, Pine Plains 0 — The third-seeded Bombers lost to second-seeded Chester on the road in the Section 9 Class C semifinals. Cathryn Simmons and Melissa Leach shared time in the goal.

“Senior Cassandra Bartelin finished out her four years on varsity with high intensity at sweeper and center mid,” said Bombers coach Sara Taveniere in a statement.

“Each year this team seems to continually improve their skills and communication on the field. While we lost today (Monday), I am incredibly proud of the developments that they have made throughout the season, and the unity that has been formed among this group of girls. I am already looking forward to next season!”
