S.J. Girls' Soccer: Cherokee stuns Williamstown

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.

Jade Bonder scored for Williamstown, which finished 15-2-3.
