Danielle Perrino volleyed in a crossing pass from Grace LeCates with eight minutes left to snap a 2-all tie and lift Cooperstown to a 3-2 victory over McGraw in the championship game of the Hamilton Tournament on Saturday.

LeCates had possession in the left corner before sending a pass toward the far post that Perrino volleyed inside the near post from 12 yards.

McGraw tied the score at 2 on a goal by Lynesie Busby-Vancise with 20 minutes left in the second half.

Liz Millea and Jordian Siver scored five minutes apart early in the first half to give Cooperstown a 2-0 lead. Millea scored off an assist from Siver six minutes into play. Siver scored unassisted.

“McGraw played very well in the second half, but we were dominating more in the first half,” Cooperstown coach Jennifer Pindar said.

Siver earned offensive MVP honors and Cooperstown goalie Katie Kleban earned defensive MVP honors. Kleban made nine saves.

Millea, Jennifer Flynn and LeCates made the all-tournament team for Cooperstown (2-4).
