Freshman Colby Diamond scored with three seconds left to give Cooperstown a road win over Westmoreland/Oriskany in a Center State Conference Division III game.

With 19 seconds left, sophomore Liam Spencer hit a shot from 25 yards that struck the crossbar and fell to Ollie Wasson, who chested the ball to Diamond at the far post for the winning goal.

“It was a great win for us because the first game of the year they beat us, 5-1,” Cooperstown coach Frank Miosek said. “It was a moral victory, and a league victory for us. We played a very well-controlled game.”

Wasson, who is also a freshman, had a part in both Cooperstown goals. He scored the Hawkeyes’ first goal with 10 minutes left in the game to bring the Hawkeyes even with the Bulldogs. 

Trevor Tambourino scored on an assist from Colton Davis to put W/O up 1-0. 

Cooperstown led the shot count, 32-10, and took five corners to three for the Bulldogs.
