“Our pitching staff has done an excellent job over the last eight days,” Cooperstown coach Frank Miosek said.

“We are happy to be ending playing so many games in a row, but we are looking forward to sectionals.”

Chris Ubner and Ben Tafuro each went 3-for-4 to lead the Hawkeyes offense. Kendall Haney was 2-for-3, Jesse Furnari went 2-for-4 and Sam Bonderoff had one hit and two sacrifices for a team-high three RBI.

Ough walked two and allowed six hits in the win.

“He looked pretty good tonight,” Edmeston head coach Darren Belden said. “In his last start he was a little shaky, but he was in the zone for most of the night tonight. I was pretty impressed with him.”

Ough also contributed on offense, going 2-for-2 and finishing with a double.

Greg DeVries had two hits and two RBI for Edmeston in the win, and teammate Logan Williams finished 2-for-4 and knocked in a run.

Roxbury 4, Giboa 3

Senior Emma Hynes’ walk-off single in the bottom of the seventh gave Roxbury the win over Gilboa in Tuesday’s Delaware League title game and delivered the Rockets their second straight league crown.

“She’s been struggling all year long and she had two hits today,” Roxbury head coach Jane Ware said. “She knew this one was it, and her bat found the ball. It was awesome.”

With the score tied at three in the bottom of the seventh, Roxbury’s Lacey German led off with a single. Later in the inning Madison German drew a one-out walk, and a Brianna Cross deep fly ball moved runners to second and third with two outs. Hynes followed up Cross’ flyout with a single to left center.

“I didn’t think we’d repeat (as champions),” Ware said. “We start six freshman this year so I didn’t know what to expect, but my kids are wonderful.”

Gilboa took a 2-0 lead in the third, and a three-run fourth from Roxbury gave it a one-run advantage before Gilboa tied it at three in the fifth.

Bryanna Meehan got the start in the circle for the Rockets, throwing a complete game and striking out six. Only one of Gilboa’s three runs were earned.

Madison German had the game’s only extra-base hit, a double. She, Hynes and Meehan each finished with two hits.

Roxbury (9-2) earned the No. 6 seed in this week’s Section IV Class D tournament. The Rockets host No. 11 Jefferson on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. in the first round.

Cooperstown 9, Sherburne-Earlville 3

A five-run fourth inning helped Cooperstown to its eighth win in nine games, defeating Sherburne-Earlville on the road in its season finale.

Rebecca Marmarato (8-1) earned the win a day after Cooperstown won its fourth CSC Division II title in five years. She struck out five and walked one.

The win is part of a late-season surge that has allowed coach Dave Bliss to use the defensive abilities of another Cooperstown pitcher, Natalie Brotherton, in the outfield.

Marmarato studied abroad last year as a sophomore and has seen an increasing number of innings in the circle as the season has progressed.

“She’s coming on strong. This year she has worked hard and gotten back into it,” Bliss said. “Having missed a year it took a while to get full strength. She’s not gonna overpower people but she doesn’t walk people and she keeps the ball down.”

Lauren Vibbard paced the Cooperstown offense, going 2-for-3 with a walk, four runs and a RBI. Piper Seamon was 2-for-5 with a triple and three RBI, while Brotherton went 2-for-4 and drove in one.

Kate Donnelly and Danielle Seamon each went 2-for-4 as well. Eight Hawkeyes had at least one hit.

Cooperstown (10-7, 10-5) awaits its section seeding.

Unatego 6, Afton 5

Hali Lucia went 2-for-4 at the plate to lift Unatego to a 6-5 win over Afton in its final regular season game.

“It was nice to see all the pieces come together for a nice end to the regular season,” Unatego head coach Christina Butcher said.

Lucia finished with a RBI and the game’s only extra-base hit, a triple.

Unatego pitcher Paige McCoy got the start, throwing 6 1/3 innings while striking out four and walking three.

Carly Hill went 2-2 for the Spartans.

No. 14 Unatego (9-8) travels to No. 3 Greene on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. in the first round of the Section IV Class C tournament.
