The victory over Plattsburgh propels R-C-S into its first-ever trip to the state's final four and headlong into Friday's semifinal match-up with the defending Class B champions from Briarcliff. The winner meets either Cold Spring Harbor (Section VIII) or Livonia (Section V) in Saturday's championship game at Homer High School.
"At this point, I think they would be disappointed (with a loss) because who would want this to end?" said Wolfe. "But at the same time, they know that they've already accomplished a great deal."
Bethlehem denied on penalty kicks
In other girls soccer regional action last weekend, Bethlehem's Class AA playoff run came to an end with a loss to Section III champion Baldwinsville on penalty kicks.
The two teams battled to a scoreless tie through 110 minutes of regulation and overtime at Chittenango High School, leaving both of them with a share of the regional title. But, Baldwinsville ultimately advanced after winning the penalty kick round 3-2.
Bethlehem (21-0-1) reached the regional round after dismissing Niskayuna 2-0 in last Wednesday's Section II final at Broadalbin-Perth High School. Taylor Teal scored midway through the first half, and Emily Rudolph tallied in the final 10 seconds of regulation to help the Eagles win the Class AA crown for the first time in six years.""
