Guilderland slams the door on Bethlehem in A final

"We never have a main weapon," said Chatnik. "If you look at any of our games this season, somebody else is leading us (in scoring)."

Shirah Fudin, Kaitlyn Martin, Allie Phelan and Michelle Primomo scored Bethlehem's four goals, and goalie Kristina Maksuti stopped five shots in the Lady Eagles' first Sectional final appearance in three years.

"I'm extremely pleased with our season," said Austin, whose Bethlehem team had no seniors on its roster. "We were a team that was previously 9-9, we came into this season losing only two seniors and we were hoping to use what we learned last year to help us this year."

Guilderland advances to the regional round for the third consecutive year. The Lady Dutch meet the Section IX champion Wednesday in Kingston, with the winner facing the Section I champion Saturday in Westchester County.

"I think this (third Sectional title) puts an exclamation point on it," said Chatnik. "Each year, we've had great senior leadership. This year we had eight seniors, and they've all won three titles now.""
