COLONIE — Shenendehowa dominated in every facet of the game in a 4-0 victory over Guilderland in the Section 2 Class AA boys soccer semifinals Friday, Oct. 28, at Colonie Central High School.
The Plainsmen (16-2-0) grabbed a 1-0 lead on Nick Evans’ goal late in the first half. Then, Jacob Akinyemi headed a corner kick into the goal less than two minutes into the second half to put Shen in control. David Benson and Trevor Chung added goals late in the second half.
Meanwhile, Guilderland (14-3-2) couldn’t get a meaningful shot on goal, as Shen’s defense continuously disrupted anything the Dutchmen’s midfielders and forwards tried to do.
Shen advances to the Section 2 Class AA finals Monday, Oct. 31, at Colonie against Bethlehem, which needed overtime to defeat Saratoga Springs 1-0.
