Gettysburg was held below two goals for just the second time in 17 matches this season.

But the Warriors' defense posted their 12th clean sheet in a row in their 1-0 victory over Red Lion in the quarterfinals of the YAIAA boys soccer tournament on Saturday morning at Gettysburg.

Red Lion (8-4-3) mustered one shot on goal and one corner, as the Warriors left quite an impression on Lions' head coach Mike Watt.

"They're the best team that we've seen this year," he said. "They pass the ball better than anyone we've seen. We made one mistake today and it cost us."

The mistake that Watt was referring to came when Warriors' midfielder Adam Yingling pocketed his 25th goal of the campaign off an assist from Alex Cowden with 8:18 left in the first half. Cowden played a cross from right to center and Lions keeper Brock Gould deflected it. Yingling got to the ball and finished it to the right side of the net.

"Alex put the ball in a good spot, but I was a little late getting there," Yingling said. "I took a touch to control it and let it go."

Gould had stopped Yingling's prior attempt, a rip from 20 yards out with 23:12 left in the first half and the lanky netminder also denied Drew Riggle's attempt with 15:33 to play before intermission.

Yingling tipped his cap to the physicality that the Lions brought to the match,.

"We weren't used to facing a team that plays that physical," he said. "I thought we adjusted well to it once we got used to it. This will help us going forward."

Gettysburg (17-0) only had a three shots on goal, a season low, and earned four corners.

"We didn't play our best, but they didn't allow us to," Gettysburg head coach Scott Hancock said. "They aren't as big and fast as West York or Susquehannock is, but they're the most technically sound team that we've played. They made us work for it today."
