CALEDONIA — Leading only 1-0 at the half, Warsaw turned up the heat on a cold, windy, rainy night at the Hamilton Field Sports Complex.
Chloe Hubbard and Taylor Howard each scored two second half goals as unbeaten and top-seeded Warsaw (19-0-0) blanked No. 4 Williamson 6-0 in the Class C1 semifinals Tuesday at Caledonia High School.
Warsaw led only 1-0 at the half as Morgan Langdon scored off an assist from Makaylah Higgins.
The junior Higgins was in a giving mood as she dished out three assists on the night.
Ellie Tangeman also scored a goal for Warsaw.
The Warsaw defense, anchored by keeper Sarah Cox and senior captain Carly Wick, along with Haley DeGroff, Natalie Herbert and Lauren Russell, posted their 13th shutout of the season. Warsaw will take on fellow LCAA D-II rep Geneseo in Friday’s finals. Geneseo won the Class C2 title a year ago.
No. 2 Geneseo defeated Addison 1-0 Tuesday in Hornell.
“Tonight was a nice win, kind of sweet after tying two years ago,” Warsaw coach Gino Casseri said. “A few girls were there and remember looking forward to playing Geneseo, they are tough.”
Warsaw has already beaten Geneseo twice this season — both by 2-0 victories.
Geneseo 1, Addison 0
Mary Claire Rollins scored the game’s only goal in the 35th minute off a feed from Maddie Mark as No. 2 Geneseo defeated sixth-seeded Addison Tuesday at Maple City Park in Hornell.
Geneseo keeper Caroline Capel posted the shutout with five saves.
“We knew coming in that Addison was better than their seed and that they were in the semis for a reason,” Geneseo coach Nick Drollette said. “They definitely were a very good team but we executed our game plan and were able to neutralize their big scorers. Our defense came up huge in the second half and Caroline Capel made the biggest save of her career late in the game to help bring it home. I’m so happy for this team, they’ve really worked very hard all year and their aim was to be where they are at this moment.”
