CCS's goal came off a Hamilton Bosgraf pass to Clark Marshall in the 60th minute.

Going forward both teams have a test on Saturday. 

"From the beginning of the season East Hamilton has been the team to beat,"  CCS head coach Shawn Brower.  "We have a lot of respect for them.  We will have to play our best game of the year and knowing we are playing for state we should bring it."  

East Hamilton has just one loss on the season and two ties.  Game time is tentatively set for 5 p.m. on Saturday.
