MAYVILLE – The upset of the girls volleyball season took place in Mayville.

Ninth-seeded Forestville (14-6) upset No. 1 – and previously-undefeated Chautauqua Lake (16-1) – in five games in the Section 6 Class D quarterfinals on Tuesday night, 17-25, 25-23, 25-23, 16-25, 25-19.

Forestville now goes to No. 4 Portville, which beat Silver Creek, 3-1, Friday at 6 p.m. in the semifinal round.
