PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — Noelle Denholm scored twice and Kate McPherson once to lead Traip Academy to a 3-0 win over St. Dominic Academy in a Class C South semifinal Saturday.

The loss ends the 14th-seeded Saints’ (5-11-1) Cinderella run through the postseason. They were the last team to qualify for the playoffs in C South, but pulled off a pair of upset victories over Hall-Dale and Carrabec.

Denholm poked in Caroline Couperthwait’s corner kick in the 17th minute for  the second-seeded Rangers (14-2), and McPherson completed a play in front of the goal nine minutes later.
