Freshman Sarah Jackson scored in the first overtime to lift 14th-seeded Cherokee to a 2-1 victory over 3rd-seeded Williamstown Tuesday in the first round of the South Jersey Group 4 girls' soccer tournament.
Jackson scored on a 30-yard shot from the left side with one minute, six seconds remaining in the first, 10-minute overtime period. She took a pass from her sister, junior Rachel Jackson.
Gina McCool made eight saves for Cherokee (7-10-1), which was a dangerous 14 seed because of the Chiefs' tough schedule in the Olympic American division.
Junior Kim Nale scored the other goal for Cherokee, which advances to Friday's second round.
