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.

O-State opened Saturday with a 4-1 victory over Brockport in a winners’ bracket game.

The Red Dragons had three hits against Brockport but benefited from four errors.

After Brockport pulled to 2-1 in the fourth, the Red Dragons tacked on two more runs in the sixth. Marzillo’s RBI single capped the scoring.

O’Gorman, Rivera and Cuevas joined DeAngelis on the All-Tournament Team. O’Gorman was 6-for-14, with all six hits going for extra bases. She had a home run in Thursday’s tournament opener, a 12-2 win over New Paltz. O’Gorman drove in a team-high eight runs over the four games.
