TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson girls’ soccer team will need to win two more matches on Saturday to really feel good about their appearance at Salpointe Catholic’s Brandon Bean Tournament.

But what they did on Friday in the quarterfinals may resonate for a while with David Goodkin’s crew.

The Badgers (2-0-1) beat the behemoth known as Catalina Foothills 2-1, winning 4-3 in penalty kicks when junior Rita Siaha stopped a shot from freshman forward Brooke Benson.

It’s believed to be the first ever winning result for Tucson over the eight-time state champion Falcons.

5th seed THMS moves into the semifinals where they will face the tournament’s top seed and host Lancers at 11:30 a.m.

The victor will play for the tournament title at 5:30 p.m. against the winner of the Rincon/University-Sahuaro semifinal (8:30 a.m.).

Tucson is in their third year under Goodkin. The Badgers have qualified for the state tournament in each of his first two seasons ending a post-season drought that had dated back to the 2008-09 campaign.

The boys semifinals will feature top seed Tucson against #5 Catalina Foothills (10 a.m.) and #2 Salpointe Catholic vs. #3 Cienega (1 p.m.).

The boys title match will be at 7:30 at Doherty Stadium.
