CICERO – Greene is back in the same position it was last year, when its season came to a sudden end – in sudden-victory overtime no less.
The Trojans, bidding for their sixth state championship, defeated Rome Free Academy, 1-0, in the Class A state quarterfinals, Saturday at Cicero-North Syracuse High School.
The unbeaten Trojans (18-0) now face fellow unbeaten, Williamsville North (20-0), Friday at 3:30 p.m. at Vestal High School’s Dick Hoover Field in the state semifinals.
“It was a good test, and (Rome Free Academy) is a really good team,” said Greene coach Sue Carlin. “We had trouble generating things on a consistent basis. We were just missing on some of our passing connections.”
