Cooperstown's Jesse Furnari hugs fellow senior Eric Deysenroth (6) while sophomore Chris Ubner looks on after Saturday's state final at Binghamton University.

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.
