FAIRBORN — Braden Guinther scored a goal in overtime to lift Sidney to a 3-2 win over Fairborn in a Division I sectional quarterfinal on Monday.

“We are so proud of our boys,” Sidney coach Jamie Fridley said. “We went into a hostile environment and came out with the win.”

Guinther scored the goal with about seven minutes left in overtime off an assist by Noah Houts. He also scored a goal early in the first half off an assist from Carson Taylor and later assisted Alijah Jackson on a goal to increase the lead to 2-0.

The Skyhawks battled back to force a tie before the end of regulation.

“We played extremely well tonight, our intensity level was high,” Fridley said. “We outplayed Fairborn in the first half. Had a lot of opportunities to score, but we couldn’t find the back of the net.”

No. 11 seed Sidney (8-7-2) advances to play at No. 1 Beavercreek (12-3-1) in a sectional semifinal on Thursday.

Elijah Jock had both Lehman goals. In the first half, he scored with 16 minutes to go on an assist from goalie Will Voisard on a long kick.
