F-S 4, Cooperstown 2
Marcella Costello hit an RBI double during Frankfort-Schuyler’s three-run first inning as visiting Cooperstown fell in the Center State Conference.
“For the first time, she had a little problem,” Cooperstown coach Dave Bliss said of standout pitcher Maria Noto. “She had three walks and three wild pitches in the first inning, which is out of character for her. She settled down after that and pitched really well.”
Noto finished with eight strikeouts and five walks in a four-hitter.
Cooperstown (10-2, 5-2) scored twice in the sixth inning to pull to 4-2. Christina Noto hit an RBI single and Ellen Vibbard hit a sacrifice fly in the inning.
Winning pitcher Katie Rabb threw a four-hitter with two strikeouts.
“We hit the ball,” Bliss said. “We were hitting it at them. We couldn’t find a hole anywhere.”
Alexie Tsouvas had two hits for Cooperstown, which will travel to Herkimer today.
Afton 4, Deposit 3
Winning pitcher Cassidy Phillips struck out 12 in a five-hitter and visiting Afton scored twice in the top of the eighth inning to win in the Midstate Athletic Conference.

Haley Linkroum had an RBI single in the eighth inning for Deposit (10-5, 6-4), which received 10 strikeouts from losing pitcher Kassi Cook, who also went 2-for-3.
