O-State softball routs Cortland to reach NCAAs


Cobleskill’s Madeline DeMilio led off the game with a home run. The Fighting Tigers’ next three batters singled, but base-running mistakes kept them from scoring.

Keuka took the lead for keeps by scoring three unearned runs against Cobleskill starter Erin Wadsworth in the second inning.

Fallon Reinold threw a three-hitter to lead SUNYIT in Cobleskill’s final game, which was shortened to five innings because of the eight-run mercy rule.

Kelsey DeZalia and Mattea Bagley each went 1-for-2 for Cobleskill, which was shut out for the third time this season.

Christopher Orlando scored Oneonta State’s run in the top of the eighth inning Saturday at Cortland as the Red Dragons were eliminated from the SUNYAC Tournament by Brockport.

Orlando doubled down the left-field line with two out in the eighth, then scored on Dylan Stamile’s single to center field. O-State’s at-bats in the inning ended when Stamile was thrown out at second as he attempted to advance on the throw home.

Orlando and Wayne Baker each went 3-for-4 for Oneonta (13-25), which also got hits from Oneonta High graduate David Wright, Casy Kies and Mike Cruz. Orlando doubled twice in the loss, which also featured a double by Baker.

Kyle Jordan (3-4) took the pitching loss. Jordan, who struck out one, walked one and hit a batter, gave up four earned runs on 11 hits in 7 1/3 innings.

Wright took over for Jordan with one out and runners at the corners in the eighth. He got out of the jam when Pete Wilson lined into a double play.

Brockport (24-14) went on to reach the championship game against tournament host Cortland, which won its fourth straight SUNYAC Tournament title with a 12-5 victory.

Cortland (30-8), which has won 32 league championships, earned an automatic berth to the NCAA Division III Tournament with the SUNYAC Tournament title. Cortland will make its 22nd consecutive NCAA D-III Tournament appearance, which is the longest active D-III streak in the country.
