BINGHAMTON — Making one state final is difficult. Making back-to-back appearances is a sign of a real quality.
Ticonderoga flexed that quality Saturday at Binghamton University, getting a combined no-hitter from secondary and tertiary starters to deny Cooperstown a first baseball state title, 7-3.
A two-run home run in the top of the first and a three-run rally proved to be more than enough for the Sentinels as Cooperstown scored all three of its runs without recording a hit.
The Hawkeyes end the season at 20-4.
A longer story will be posted later.
