Adirondack wins first sectional title since ’86

Sports

They’re partying like it’s 1986 at Adirondack.

The Wildcats took home their first baseball sectional title in 32 years on Monday afternoon, holding off Westhill 7-5 in the Section III Class B final.

With the game tied at one in the fourth, Adirondack broke through for six runs to take a seemingly commanding 7-1 lead.

It stayed that way until Westhill loaded the bases with nobody out in the seventh and Andrew O’Connor grounded one right back to Ethan Martin, who airmailed his throw home allowing three runs to score to cut the lead to 7-4.

The Wildcats then summoned Adam Serra from the bullpen, who settled things down recording two quick outs before allowing an RBI single bringing the tying run to the plate.  However, Serra got Corey Frassica to line out to left to end it.
