HIGHLANDS RANCH – Valor controlled the pace of play for nearly the entire game, but it took double overtime for the Eagles to eliminate Air Academy from the 4A state tournament with a 1-0 victory.

With just 27 seconds remaining in double overtime, Cydney Billups crossed a ball right in front of the net to Amanda Lopez, who headed it in for the game winning goal.

Valor advances to the semifinals and will play the No. 1 seed, Cheyenne Mountain, on Saturday, May 18, at Sports Authority Stadium.
