The Fulton girls varsity soccer team moved on to the semifinals of the Section III Class A playoffs after winning a thriller against Indian River Friday.
In a defensive battle, the Lady Raiders scored the game’s only goal during the second half en route to a 1-0 win over Indian River.
The Lady Raiders’ second-half goal by Katelyn Caza was all that Fulton needed to secure the win. Caza’s goal was assisted by Courtney Beckwith.
Gaolie Allyson Bricker saved all 4 of Indian River’s shots on goal.
With the win, Fulton’s record improves to 11-4-2 overall. The Lady Raiders were scheduled to compete against top seeded Whitesboro in Chittenango Tuesday.
A win against Whitesboro would allow Fulton the opportunity to play for the Class A championship against either Jamesville-DeWitt or Camden Nov. 1 in Chittenango.
