COOPERSTOWN – Following 5-2 win against the Pierson Whalers this evening, the Cooperstown Hawkeyes baseball team are headed to the state championship tomorrow afternoon, where they will take on Ticonderoga Sentinels at 4 p.m. at Binghamton University.

Pierson started with a 2-0 lead until the top of the second, when Cooperstown’s bats and aggressive base running propelled the Hawkeyes to a 3-2 lead. With Erik Dysenroth brought in as middle relief pitcher, Pierson didn’t score another run for the remainder of the game. Catcher Sam Bonderoff hit a sacrifice fly and later an infield single – both times bringing Chris Ubner home to seize the win.

The game marks the baseball team’s first entry into the state championship.
