Consecutive singles by Lichtenstein, Cuevas and Brianna Rivera scored the first run. Nicole Marzillo followed with a two-run double and Kristyn Neroda had an RBI single. Katie O’Gorman then hit an RBI double and scored on a single by Meaghan Foster.

O-State won in walkoff fashion when O’Gorman’s RBI double in the fifth scored Nicole Brieva for its eighth run.

Oneonta High graduate Erin Wolstenholme went 0-for-2 for Cortland, which is 28-15.
