Six teams from the Bay Rivers advanced past the boys and girls soccer Region I quarterfinals Tuesday night.
Jamestown’s girls and boys won handily over their opening-round opponents at Wanner Stadium last night, while it took a slightly more dramatic finish for Tabb’s girls to knock off Chancellor at home.
Here are the results, followed by Thursday’s semifinal matchups which feature two all-Bay Rivers showdowns.
Jamestown 14 Prince Edward 1
Jon Cullom tied a school record with six goals and Patrick Kelly added a hat trick as Jamestown’s boys moved one win away from a return to the spring jubilee in Radford. FULL STORY
York 3 King George 0
Josh Calderon scored once in the first half and again in the second as York shut out King George on the road. Sam Hovater also scored, and Tajee Harley, Brian Rumble and Alex Meade provided the assists. Falcons’ keeper Ben Kinney made six saves to preserve the shutout.
Tabb 3 Courtland 0
Riley Maw continued to carry Tabb on his back, producing a hat trick Tuesday that lifted Tabb over Courtland while ending the Cougars’ season for the second-straight year in the Region I tournament quarterfinals.
Jamestown 5 Culpeper 1
Jamestown’s speed and balance prevailed as five different players scored for the Eagles, who cruised to a semifinal showdown with district rival Tabb on Thursday. FULL STORY
Tabb 2 Chancellor 1
After losing to Chancellor each of the past three seasons, first-year Tabb coach Kendra Perry said her Tigers “got lucky and snuck away with the victory” after Hollie Macdonald’s beautiful feed set up Katie Herold’s game-winner in overtime. The Tigers had led all the way up until the final two minutes of regulation when Chancellor finally broke through with the equalizer.
Grafton 8 Prince Edward 0
Grafton rolled past the Southside District’s top seed Tuesday to set the Clippers up with another showdown with a district number one, this time Courtland, who beat Warhil 9-3 Tuesday, in Thursday’s semifinals.
