Ranked third in New York State, the Voorheesville girls’ soccer team got to the Class B sectional final for the second straight year. In a crushing loss, 4 to 1, the Birds couldn’t beat the first-ranked team, Schalmont — the same team Voorheesville last year in the semifinals.

Sometimes, you end up back where you started.

Although Guilderland had lost most of its line-up from its championship season last year, new players stepped up and came close to the high bar, losing its playoff match, 1 to 0.

The Guilderland girls’ soccer team was knocked out of the Class AA playoffs on Oct. 28 with a 5-to-0 loss to Niskayuna at home in the quarterfinals.

Eighth-seeded Berne-Knox-Westerlo took on top-seeded Stillwater on Monday evening at Stillwater High School for the Class C sectional quarterfinal. 

For the second year in a row, the Blackbirds were halted by Ichabod Crane in the boys' soccer match. This time, they took a goal, ending the game 2-to-1.

A goal by Julia Voss in the 39thminute, off of a well-placed assist by Talia Crisafulli, was enough offense for Voorheesville to advance to the finals.

Jeremy Collen scored the sudden-death overtime winning goal for Guilderland on Monday in the Class AA soccer quarterfinals against Saratoga.

Four or five soccer teams can make a case for a Class AA championship in 2014, and Guilderland is certainly one of them. 

The BKW girls' soccer team turned an 0-5 start into a 6-7-2 season as it hopes to win a sectional game on Friday.
