The patient, relentless, season-long journey to the state championship game for the Stillwater girls soccer team took it’s final step on Saturday with a 4-0 defeat of Haldane in the Class C semifinals at Cortland High School.
State finalists year ago, the Warriors played with laser focus all season, determined to fight their way back for another shot at a state crown. They’ll have just that Sunday at 3 p.m. at Cortland HS when they take on Little Falls for Class C supremacy.
Brooke Pickett and Teya Staie with two goals each led the Warriors offensively while Stillwater keeper and the Warriors defense posted yet another shutout, their fifth in six post season outings in which Stillwater has outscored their opponents 34-1.
With a 21-0-1 mark in place, and their march to the finals complete, now it’s time for the Warriors to deliver with all the chips pushed to the center of the table.
