Ellenville High reg­is­tered the first sec­tional vic­tory in the pro­gram’s his­tory as the Lady Devils de­feated Lib­erty 1-0 in a Sec­tion 9, Class B quar­ter­fi­nal match.

The (10-4-1) dom­i­nated play, but couldn’t break the score­less tie un­til with 15 min­utes left in reg­u­la­tion. That’s when Carly Craft knocked a pass to­ward the mid­dle for JoAnna Craft, who con­nected on a 12yard shot on a break­away.

“Our pos­ses­sion was great to­day. We cre­ated many chances and I was happy with our style of play. It’s all com­ing to­gether at the right time for us,” Ellenville coach Matt Daum said. “We have to give credit to Lib­erty’s de­fense. They held their own and their keeper (Kelsey Mor­gans) was su­perb.”

Mor­gans had 13 saves for the (8-6-1) In­di­ans. Colleen Stevens and Vanelys Malave com­bined for one save for Ellenville.

The Devils play at topseeded Spack­enkill 2 p.m. Fri­day in the semi­fi­nals. The Spar­tans ad­vanced with a 6-0 win over Dover. Rhinebeck 4, Marl­boro 2

At Rhinebeck, Michelle Gi­ampor­tone gets a hat trick, in­clud­ing her 100th ca­reer goal, to lead the Hawks in the B quar­ter­fi­nals. She scored twice in the first 15 min­utes to put her team in charge.

Libby Cal­la­han had an as­sist, as did Gi­ampor­tone, who set up Stephanie Cassens for a 3-0 half­time lead.

“Michelle re­ally took charge to­day,” Rhinebeck coach Matt Grande said. “The way we played as a team and kept our com­po­sure makes me proud to coach these ladies

“It was a hard-fought game in the mid­field and our de­fense did a good job keep­ing pres­sure on the Marl­boro at­tack, which is very fast and skilled.”

Kali Schindler scored twice for Marl­boro. She con­verted a penalty kick 10 min­utes into the sec­ond half and later tal­lied off a Baylee Gar­ri­son pass.
