Class B girls

The AuSable Valley Lady Patriots gave it their best shot of the season, and were able to get the Plattsburgh High Lady Hornets into overtime.

However, the Hornets were able to take advantage of strong goalkeeping from Karlie Neale and two makes in the penalty shootout to score a win over the third-seeded Patriots and advance to the Section VII Class B final Nov. 4.

Brooke Knight opened the scoring in the 23rd minute to give the Hornets a 1-0 lead. Megan Colby then scored in the 25th and 45th minutes to give the Patriots a 2-1 lead before Knight hooked up with Marle Curle to equalize the game in the 64th minute, a score which would not change again.

Neale had six saves for the Hornets, while Taylor Saltus had seven in the loss for the Patriots.

The Hornets will face the top seed in Class B, as the Beekmantown Lady Eagles scored a 4-0 win over the Peru Lady Indians, two teams who tied in the last game of the regular season, spoiling the Eagles’ bid for an undefeated season.

Jess Huber scored the final three goals for the Eagles in the 32nd, 39th and 69th minutes, while Kallie Villemaire scored the opening goal of the game in the third minute.
