Section VII soccer season coming down to six championship games

— In the 67th minute, Emma Gothner was able to trap a deflection off a Westport defender and put the ball past Eagles goalie Karlee McGee to score the equalizer for the Beavers (5-10-1), and the two teams remained scoreless throughout the final 13 minutes of regulation and the 30 minutes of overtime.

The Eagles faced the second-seeded Elizabethtown-Lewis Lady Lions (11-6-0), who got a goal in the 16th minute by Kylee Cassavaugh (12th) on an assist from Emily Morris (10th) for a 1-0 win over the Indian Lake/Long Lake Lady Orange. Jennifer McGinn made five saves for the Lions in the victory.

On the other half of the Class D bracket, the Chazy Lady Eagles (16-1-0) scored a 5-0 victory against the Willsboro Lady Warriors (3-13-1).

Megan Reynolds opened the scoring on a penalty kick in the 28th minute and scored again in the 43rd minute (Caitlyn LaPier assist), while Hannah Laurin scored in the 36th minute (Kirsten Doran), Amanda Kempainen scored in the 40th and LaPier scored in the 62nd minute (Rachel Pombio).
