Waterford (17-2-0), the No. 1 seed and cham¬pion of the Class C tournament, faces Norwood-Norfolk (9-6-3) of Section X in a New York State regional semifinal at South Colonie High School Wednesday at Noon. Admission is $8.

The Fordians assemble after Chris Hunt's goal later on in the first half. Waterford played defensively the rest of the way, which was not pretty to watch, but enough to hold off the Blackbirds.

"We were playing defensively and playing back and just kicking the ball away," Waterford head coach Fred Engelmann said. "It was clear the ball, clear the ball and that gives them possession. It looks like they’re really outworking us, but that’s what we did. It wasn’t a game plan, but that’s what happened. I’ll take it, I guess."

"At the beginning of the year, we had lost 13 seniors from last year and we didn’t know how far we were going to go," senior goalkeeper Ryan Hardy said. "But I think we just proved to everybody how strong we are and how good of a program Waterford is. Hopefully we can keep it going."
