SILVER CREEK – The memorable season isn’t over quite yet for the No. 8 Silver Creek-Forestville Black Knights.

After coming up just short of a divisional crown, the Black Knights had a first in school history as they hosted a Section 6 playoff game.

And Jade Lewis made sure it wasn’t going to be the team’s last home game as her direct kick in the 27th minute secured a 1-0 victory over No. 9 Chautauqua Lake.

“That’s not your run of the mill 4-10-1 team,” Silver Creek-Forestville coach Kevin Rice said of Chautauqua Lake and their overall season record. “They’re a lot better than their record and, in all honesty, they played a tougher season schedule. They played Maple Grove, Frewsburg and Southwestern twice. It gets you ready.

“I’m not taking anything away from us,” Rice continued. “We were certainly ready. The comforts of home helped.”

Jamie Hehir was the winning goalie with five saves while Rachel Fortney was the tough-luck losing goalie.

Silver Creek will will play No. 1 Olmsted on Friday.

Cattaraugus-Little Valley (13-3-1) plays at No. 4 Allegany-Limestone on Friday.




CLARENCE- Jamestown High School was minus two regulars when it played its Section 6 Class AA boys soccer quarterfinal at Clarence.

The No. 9 Red Raiders were without goalie Liam Kulakowski, out with a concussion, and Mitch Moore, sidelined with a knee injury, and lost an 8-2 decision to top-ranked Clarence.

Clarence took command early and by the end of the first half had a 5-1 lead. Victor Powell scored at five minutes, Patrick Schulz at seven minutes, Jacob Pondrello at 18 minutes and Sam Wasson recorded the final two goals of the first half.

Jamestown’s Karee Rizzo-Walker scored his third goal of the season from junior varsity call-up Karson Peters with 11 seconds left in the first half.
