FALCONER - Tobi Culpepper was the hero for eighth-seeded Falconer on Tuesday as the Golden Falcons earned a trip to the Section Class B-2 quarterfinals after edging No. 9 Salamanca, 1-0, in prequarterfinal boys soccer.
Both teams played tough defense through each half, but Culpepper took a pass from Evan Butts on a cross 22 minutes into the first half and drilled it into the net for what proved to be the winning goal.
Trevor Dykstra had a solid day in the net for Falconer to preserve the shutout and Nathan Sanders and Tom Fales were defensive standouts.
