Sixth-seeded Schuylerville, behind goals from Liam Armstrong and Zach Saddlemire slipped past the second-seeded Red Raiders of Mechanicville in a Class C boys soccer semifinal at Mohonasen on Wednesday.

The Black Horses took a 1-0 lead about five minutes in on a deflected shot by Armstrong that found the side net for the only score of the first half.

Early in the second half the Raiders just missed on scoring opportunities, hitting the cross bar on a pair of shots and then misfiring on a penalty kick.

The game score stood until Saddlemire’s scoring strike late in the second half sending Schuylerville to the championship game where they’ll face top-seeded Ichabod Crane on Saturday at Colonie.

Mechanicville wraps up a fine season earning the Wasaren title and finishing with a 14-5 overall mark.
