Wednesday, May 15 -- Top seed Spotswood edged fifth-seeded Rockbridge County High School 1-0 in the semifinals of the Valley District boys soccer tournament in Penn Laird.

The Trailblazers (13-2-2) scored the lone goal of the night midway through the second half to take down the Wildcats (8-10-0). Spotswood had defeated RC by 3-0 and 8-0 scorelines during the two regular season meetings.

Joao Silva-Kahn, who was called up from the junior varsity squad to replace the injured Zach Brown, made six saves in goal for RC.

The Wildcats will take on Broadway in the Valley consolation match at Harrisonburg on Friday. The winner of that game will advance to the VHSL Class 3 Region C playoffs.
