Wheatley had more and better scoring opportunities, but Broadalbin-Perth took advantage of one of its few to defeat Wheatley 1-0 in the state Class B finals at Middletown High School.

Ben Bellandi put on a display of deft dribbling getting passed two Wheatley defenders and then hooking a shot to the left corner for the lone goal with 13:14 left in the game. Wheatley had a chance to tie one minute later and the shot went wide.

Wheatley finished the season 15-4-2 and this was the first loss of the season against a Class B team. Broadalbin-Perth is 19-0-3.
