The Eagles move into today’s Class B regional semifinal having lost just once this season, to fellow Section VII representative AuSable Valley.

Beekmantown defeated Section X’s Franklin Academy, 3-0, Wednesday to move into today’s contest.

Johnstown, the Section II representative, hasn’t played since defeating Gloversville in a five-set match Nov. 2.

It was Johnstown that handed the Eagles their first loss of the season a year ago, which unfortunately came in the state quarterfinals. Beekmantown took a 3-1 loss despite playing one of the best games of its season.

Today’s match will get going at noon.

GLOVERSVILLE, 2 P.M.

The Patriots had an extraordinary Champlain Valley Athletic Conference season, defeating Class B champion Beekmantown for its first regular season loss since 2010.

AuSable Valley knocked off Section X’s Potsdam in straight sets Wednesday to land in today’s match.

Voorheesville, also from Section II, captured the title with a 3-1 win over Broadalbin-Perth.

It’s another rematch from a year ago as the Blackbirds knocked the Patriots out of the state tournament with a 3-0 victory.

Today’s match is slated to begin at 2 p.m.
