Covenant boys soccer has advanced in the state semifinals.

The Eagles beat Eastern Mennonite 2-1 this afternoon in the quarterfinals at Covenant.

Brandon Dejong had the first goal of the game on the penalty kick and Girma Baker put away the second goal at the start of the second half. 

The Eagles improve to 16-2-2 and they break through after having lost in the state quarterfinals last year.

Dejong said, "this is always a good rivalry so any alumni will tell you how important this game is for them and for us."

Baker added, "we'll win, I'm positive we're gonna win it. I'm just gonna keep working hard with my teammates and trusting each other."
