Class A1 Sectional Finals: (1) Spencerport 5 (2) Brighton 2

With 28 minutes remaining, Alyssa Hackett scored a goal off the assist from Lily Brongo to make it a 2-1 game. Hackett also finished with two goals in the contest.

After a Solano goal pushed the lead to 3-1, Brighton’s Maggie Cregan got credit for a goal after a Spencerport defender knocked the ball into their own goal making it a 3-2 game heading into the half. It was the first time all year that Spencerport had allowed more than one goal in a game.

In the second half, Hackett and Bre DeHond scored for the Rangers. Brongo finished the game with four assists.

Spencerport’s victory gave head coach Jaime Schneider his 200th career win.
