Cleveland sophomore Sam DeBien scored the lone goal Tuesday night in a District 5-AAA semifinal game at East Hamilton.

DeBien's goal in the 19th minute earned a ticket to the district championship game.

It also guarantee's a trip to the region tournament next week.  

East Hamilton beat Cleveland 1-0 in the regular season, earning the second seed.  Cleveland was the third seed. 

Cleveland head coach Andy Byrd was pleased with his team's effort.


"We reacted well to it,"  Byrd said of the goal halfway through the first half. "We didn't change our game plan at all.  I knew we were going to have to grind it out.  I think the better team won tonight.  We are senior loaded."

The goal came after a Cleveland corner kick.  On the same play, East Hamilton keeper Abbey Saddler was injured and did not return.  Back up keeper Meghan Lively came in and had three saves.

Cleveland keeper Maya Yancey had five saves.  

Cleveland out shot East Hamilton 6-4.
