    There is no golden goal in girls’ soccer and that allowed Section V champion Keshequa to find the net twice in overtime Saturday as its Indians defeated Sauquoit Valley’s Indians 3-1 to earn a spot in Sunday’s state Class C title match.

    Keshequa immediately went on the offensive in overtime and the go-ahead goal came off the foot of Shannon Gordinier who took a centering pass from her sister Tessa Gordinier on the left wing.
    Section V’s Indians were awarded a penalty kick when Haley Russell was taken down inside the penalty area with five seconds remaining in the period. Russell
    when low to the left with her shot and gave Keshequa a two-goal lead.
    Keshequa had struck first in regulation. Alex Flint scored unassisted 14:14 into the contest.
    Sauquoit Valley (18-3-1) drew even five minutes before halftime when Jenna Mazza beat a defender then put a shot past goalkeeper Katie Forrester.
    Keshequa outshot the Section III Indians 14-7. Forrester made four saves while Alyson Gaffney had six for Sauquoit Valley.
    Keshequa’s opponent in Sunday’s final will be Section II Hoosick Falls, a 3-0 semifinal winner over Friends Academy of Locust Valley in Section VIIII.
