GLOO CEMENTS CLASS A TITLE FOR QUAKERS

Sarah Gloo scored on Orchard Park's first sudden-victory penalty kick Wednesday to give the Quakers a marathon, 2-1 decision over Lockport at Tonawanda's Clint Small Stadium and the Section VI Class A girls soccer championship.

The game was scoreless at the end of regulation time. Lockport's Caryn Beshaw scored in the first 10-minute overtime and Gloo tied the game in the second OT period.

The teams then battled through two scoreless five-minute overtimes before going to a five-player penalty kick shootout, which also was scoreless.

Gloo's sudden-death penalty kick proved decisive when Lockport's first shooter failed to convert.

Orchard Park, 10th in the Western New York Coaches Large Schools Poll, will take an 11-5 record into Saturday's Far West Regionals at Lewiston-Porter against Rochester-Mercy of Section V. Sixth ranked Lockport finished 11-6.

Class C championship: Alicia Vella's unassisted goal with three minutes remaining capped Holland's rally from a 2-0 deficit to a 4-3 victory over defending champion Allegany at Ellicottville.

Erin Nickler scored host Allegany's first two goals but Emily Vella, Alicia's twin sister, and Karen Eichler replied for Holland. Allegany, the Class C champion the last three years, went ahead when Meeghan Wintermantel scored, but Holland gained a 3-3 tie on a goal by Julie Baehre.

Holland, No. 2 in the Coaches Small Schools Poll, heads for the Far West Regionals on Saturday at Lew-Port with a 15-2-2 record against Bloomfield of Section V. Fourth-ranked Allegany finished 14-3.
