Benjamin Knecht had a goal and an assist to lead second-seeded Hamilton to a Section Three Class C-1 3-0 quarterfinal victory at home over the Hawkeye boys.

CORRECTION: Cooperstown’s first-round win over Waterville in boys soccer on Oct. 23 was by a score of 2-0. The score reported in the 10-24 edition of the Crier was wrong because of incorrect information provided by the home team.
