LIVERPOOL The Watertowns boys soccer teams season ended on Wednesday night by the closest of margins.
After the Cyclones and Christian Brothers Academy battled to a 1-1 tie through two sudden-victory overtimes in a Class A semifinal in the Section 3 playoffs, the Brothers advanced to the title game via a shootout at Liverpool High School.
CBA bested Watertown on penalty kicks, 4-1, to move on.
Tyrell Thomas scored in the first half, with Collin Jorden assisting, and goalie Noah Taylor made nine saves for the third-seeded Cyclones, who finished their season at 15-0-3.
Liam Price tallied a goal, and goalie Mike Smith made three saves for the Brothers (14-2-1), who advance to face fourth-seeded Jamesville-DeWitt, which knocked off No. 1 seed Fowler, 2-0, in the Class A final.
Ironically, Watertown won the Frontier League playoff title by prevailing in a shootout over Indian River two weeks ago.
Its a tough way to end a season, Watertown coach Todd Heckman said. But we still had a tremendous year.
BEAVER RIVER 2, FABIUS-POMPEY 0
Malori Mattimore and Kristen Ebersol each scored in the second half as the fourth-seeded Beaver River upset second-seeded Fabius-Pompey to claim Section 3s Class C-2 championship in a game played at Herkimer County Community College.
Goalie Mariah Abel made four saves to record the shutout for Beaver River (9-6-3), which advances to Section 3s overall Class C title game against Class C-1 winner Little Falls at 2 p.m. on Saturday at SUNY Cortland. Melissa Dow made seven saves for the Falcons (14-4).
Also on Saturday, top-seeded Copenhagen will play in the Class D title game at 4:30 p.m. at SUNY Cortland against No. 2 Poland, which defeated Cincinnatus 3-0 on Wednesday.
