Matt Louiso scored in overtime to give defending champion Kenmore East a 2-1 win over top-seeded Lockport in the Section VI Class A boys soccer semifinals Tuesday at Lewiston-Porter.

The fourth-seeded Bulldogs (15-4-2) had lost both Niagara Frontier League meetings with Lockport (19-2).

"I was telling our guys before the game that I wouldn't want to play us today," said Kenmore East coach Dick White. "It's tough to beat somebody three times."

Louiso's shot from the right wing landed just inside the far post with about five minutes left in the second overtime period. Jared Hulshoff had given Lockport an early 1-0 lead on a penalty kick, but East's Mike Farrell tied it nine minutes into the second half with his own rebound.

Clarence set up a rematch of last year's final by defeating Grand Island, 3-0. Brian Telesz, Joe Silvestrini and Brandon Englert scored for the Red Devils while goalie Al Winiewicz had 22 saves.

Westfield prevailed, 3-1, in the shootout to earn a 2-1 victory over Allegany-Limestone. David White, Josh Hagen and Gabe Cranston converted shootout chances.
