It took until the fifth inning before either New Hartford or Ilion could punch across a run. When it came down to it Ilion flinched first, on a past ball that let Derek Rogers break the tie. New Hartford would add a pair in the bottom of the 6th to beat Post 920.
That’s not to say the seventh inning didn’t produce excitement. Ilion had the tying run at home plate after drawing a pair of walks. New Hartford improved to 1-0 while Ilion dropped to 0-1 on the season.
While Ilion and New Hartford legion is in full swing, some schools haven’t waved good bye to the high school season. On Friday (06/03) Cooperstown squares off against Elmira Notre Dame in the state softball tournament. Baseball has West Canada Valley playing Windham High School at Broome Community College come Saturday (06/04).
