WHITEBORO – A few seconds ago, the Lady Hawkeyes won a berth in next weekend’s Final Four with a 62-44 victory over Watkins Glen.
The girls roared back from a nip-and-tuck first quarter to dominate the hardwood at state quarter-finals at Whitesboro High this afternoon and overwhelm Watkins Glens, the same team they defeated in the state finals last year.
For a second year in a row, the CCS girls now head to the state’s Final Four next weekend.
“In our first game against them, we beat Seton Catholic,” said OHS Yellowjackets coach Jerry Mackey. “Then they came back and beat us by 10 points.”
And on Wednesday, the two teams will square off in a deciding game to see who moves ahead to the Class
B Section IV finals. “Last year, we lost to Seton Catholic at this round,” said Mackey.
“But this year, we’re the only team who has beaten them in a game.”

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.
