Junior Jessica O’Shaughnessy scored in the 30th minute to lift top-seeded Sayville to a 1-0 victory over Shoreham-Wading River in the Suffolk County Class A girls semifinals at Depot Field in Sayville on Friday afternoon.
The win boosted Sayville into the county finals against No. 2 Islip at the Dowling Soccer Complex at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
The loss ended the fifth-seeded Wildcats’ most successful season since 2006 at 10-4, while the Golden Flash improved to 13-2.
On Tuesday, SWR defeated Bayport-Blue Point, 1-0, in a first-round game.
O’Shaughnessy latched onto a pass from senior Michelle Civitella and rolled in a shot to the lower left corner past goalkeeper Kelly Wynkoop for the game’s lone goal.
The Wildcats tried to equalize, but a stout Sayville backline limited the visitors to any dangerous opportunities.
Shoreham finished the season allowing only six total goals.
