Third time is charm for Sonic

[NPSL: Playoffs] The third time was the charm for the defending champion FC Lehigh Valley United Sonic as it beat Greater Binghamton FC, 1-0, for its first win in three meetings this season and moved into Saturday's National Premier Soccer League semifinals. The Sonoma County Sol, the only other former champion still alive, will host the Sonic in one semifinal, while Richmond Virginia Football Club will face the Erie Admirals in the other match.

Lance Dotzman's goal for the Sonic in the 57th minute sent a crowd of approximately 1,000 fans in Binghamton home disappointed.

The unbeaten Sol (11-0-3) got overtime goals from Brenton Frame and Cory Taufer to cap a 3-1 comeback win over the Sacramento Gold before 600 fans.

James Madison's Josh Grant scored the lone goal for first-year RVA FC in its 1-0 win over hard-luck Chattanooga FC for the South regional crown. Chattanooga's bus was involved in a traffic accident on the way to Richmond, while its coach, Bill Elliott, didn't arrive at the game until its 90th minute because his flight was diverted to Norfolk because of bad weather.

The Admirals traveled to Iowa, where they beat the Quad Cities Eagles, 1-0, on former Gannon star Afrim Latifi's goal.
