Second-seeded Sacred Heart Prep will play No. 3 Notre Dame-Belmont in the semifinals of the Central Coast Section Division III girls' soccer playoffs on Thursday at Valley Christian High in San Jose at 4:30 p.m. The Gators (14-3-5) advanced in their first-ever appearance in the postseason following a 2-1 win over local rival Menlo on Saturday at Harker School. The Knights finished the season 14-5-5.

This was the third meeting between Sacred Heart and Menlo this season, The previous meetings ended in ties. Menlo's goal came on a penalty kick by senior Madi Shove, giving her 24 goals this season. Menlo coach Donoson Fitzgerald singled out defenders Elitah Petty and Maggie Brown plus Sarah Swig in the midfield.

"It was a tough way to end the season," Fitzgerald said, "but it has been a great joy coaching these girls and this team this season."
