SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WUTR/WFXV/WPNY) – Both the Oriskany and New Hartford baseball teams had the chance to bring home Sectional titles on Monday, but in a pair of low scoring affairs at Onondaga Community College, only the Class D squad was able to hang a banner, while the, “A” team fell short of their ultimate goal.

Oriskany’s title game, which saw first pitch around noon, was against top-seeded Belleville-Henderson. The Panthers hadn’t lost a game since April 20th, winning 15 in a row before their faceoff with the Center State Conference Division IV champions. The team had also only allowed more than four runs in a game once, and that was in their first game of the season, a 10-0 loss to Beaver River, who were the two seed and reached the sectional semifinals in Class C. While Oriskany was just another in the long line of teams to have their offense shut down, they were able to return the favor with Anthony Kernan and Eddie Wright combining for a complete game shutout, while Jack Tamburino drove in the only run of the game with his squad’s first hit, which came in the fourth inning. Oriskany now advances to the Class D Regional against Section IV’s Deposit-Hancock, the defending State Champions

New Hartford did not have the same luck in their Class A title game against Jamesville-Dewitt, which was the third game of the day and started after Skaneateles beat Cazenovia in the Class B championship. The Spartans failed to push a run across against the Rams despite having bases loaded in the seventh inning, and only managed four total hits in the contest, three of them singles off the bat of Matt Greene. They finish the year 11-9, the runner-up in the class, while J-D advances to the New York State Subregional and a matchup with Section X’s Franklin Academy.
