HILTON - Haverling topped Lackawanna 2-0 Saturday at Hilton High School to punch a ticket to the state semifinals for the first time in 23 years.

"It's a wonderful feeling for the kids," Haverling head coach Matt Hill said. "They are incredibly excited. We played a great game today."

The Rams got on the board in the first half when Lorenzo Serafini fired a through ball to Keefer Calkins who tucked it away in the left corner for a 1-0 advantage 20 minutes into the game.

Thomas Binkowski recorded the second goal in the second half on an unassisted score.

Haverling's defense held Lackawanna to just five shots and contained Ali Alamari, Lacakwanna's best player who scored 45 goals in the regular season, scoreless.

"Sam Artns and Braden Yartym were in charge of making sure he didn't get to dangerous spots," said Hill. "DJ Smith, Cayden Mattison, Brendan Strong, Yartym, Arnts along with [goalie] Jordan Deats. They played a flawless game today. I'm a pretty good critic of how they play and I can say they played a flawless game."

Haverling will move on to the state final four and face Section III's Skaneateles at 1:45 p.m. at Faller Field in Middletown New York.
