The Sacred Heart Prep boys survived penalty kicks for the second straight match and advanced to the championship match of the Central Coast Section Division III soccer playoffs with a 3-1 shootout win over No. 4 seed Santa Cruz on Wednesday at Westmont High in Campbell. The No. 8-seeded Gators (15-2-5) will play No. 2 Sacred Heart Cathedral (15-3-4) in the finals Saturday at Homestead High at 12:30 p.m.

After playing to a 1-1 tie and winning in PKs over No. 1 Pajaro Valley on Saturday, SHP nearly duplicated that effort in Wedneday's semifinals. After Santa Cruz had gone ahead, the Gators tied the match in the 65th minute after a corner kick found Cam Chapman. He first headed the ball into a group in front of the goal and, when the ball bounced back to him he returned a shot into the back post. Once in penalty kicks, sophomore keeper Zach Haire (returning from illness) made three huge saves to send SHP into its second CCS Division III title match since 2013.
