SUNBURY -- The last time the Shikellamy girls were postseason bound, the current group of seniors were just in sixth grade.
The Shikellamy seniors changed that drought in Tuesday night's Heartland-I matchup, defeating Milton, 3-0, to clinch a District 4 playoff berth, the team's first since 2007.
"I'm very happy. I'm just glad we didn't have to put the pressure on (the girls) Thursday. It's a good feeling," Shikellamy coach Angela Sivillo said. "We haven't qualified since 2007, so it's great to see my seniors qualify."
The Braves (9-7-1, 5-7-1 HAC-I) got goals from Paige Mancini, Mikayla Neff and Sidney Graybill, who also added an assist in the second half.
The Braves out-shot Milton, 12-2.

MIFFLINBURG -- Olivia George scored the game's only goal in the 74th minute as the Defenders pulled out the HAC-II win in their final game of the regular season.
George's goal was unassisted for Warrior Run (12-5-1, 10-3-1 HAC-II), which also got a one-save day from Madi Welliver to get the shutout.
"We played well tonight. We just got the unfortunate break against us, and Warrior Run got a fortunate break and they got the goal which turned out to be the outcome," said Mifflinburg coach Tedd Keister. "We have nothing to be ashamed of (in the game) against that team."

SELINSGROVE -- Brittany Walters' goal with just two seconds remaining in regulation tied the game for the Ironmen, and the HAC-I matchup ended in a stalemate. Despite the tie, Danville (8-7-2, 6-6-2 HAC-I) qualified for the District 4 playoffs.
Shelby Freedman assisted on Walters' goal for Danville with a 25-yard cross from the right side of the net.
Nicole Krebs scored unassisted for Selinsgrove (12-3-2, 8-3-2), which only put two shots on goal and had just one corner kick in the game.
