NUNDA – Third-seeded Keshequa flexed their muscles Friday night during their 2-0 victory over No. 6 Geneseo in Section V Class C2 quarterfinal action.
It took just eight minutes for Keshequa to put one through as Maddy Strain scored off an assist from Kelsey Davis.
It was Strain’s seventh goal of the season.
It stayed that way until early in the second half when freshman Braelyn Isaman netted her LCAA-leading 25th goal of the year, with Ava Thayer getting the assist off a scramble in front, that put the Lady Indians up 2-0.
Keshequa dominated this one outshooting Geneseo by a 12-2 margin.
Keshequa keeper Isabellla Hugi secured the clean sheet for the Lady Indians, who also had excellent defensive play from both Kaylin Fox and Emma Jo Pierce.
Both teams split a pair of 1-0 contests this season, with each winning on their home field.
Keshequa has now outscored their opponents 96-7 on the season.
Head coach Pat Forrester was excited about the way her girls competed.
“It was, as always, a great game against a fun rival to the north of us,” coach Forrester said. “Our girls played confident and hard, we possessed well, staying with our marks and sticking to our game plan. I was very proud of their composure and team effort.”
The Lady Indians improve to 16-2 on the season and they will face No. 7 Wheatland-Chili, who was a 1-0 winner over No. 2 Naples Friday.
That semifinal will take place Tuesday at a site to be determined.
“Heading into the semifinals we are going to enjoy the win tonight, gather tomorrow for an early practice and keep our focus on one game at a time,” coach Forrester said.
