State Playoffs end in Saints win, Wildcats loss

BINGHAMTON -- It was a long time coming for the Seton Catholic Central Baseball Program and Head Coach Jim Miller, but thanks to a 9-0 win over Geneseo, the Saints take home the first State Championship in the program's history.

The Saints offense pounded the Devils all game long at BCC's Hornet Field, including three run innings in both the 2nd and the 6th.  But the spotlight all day was shining on the mound. 

The Saints have been led all year by a pair of lefty aces.  Junior Michael Korchak got the call for the Semi-Finals against Pierson and as he's done all year, shut down the opposition.  Korchak threw a complete game, 4-hit shutout and struck out 11.  Connor Ligeikis brought in Joe Wasko for the only run of the game, continuing the title run.

Then, in the Class C Finals, it was Senior Pat Gosney who struck out 15 in the Regionals, that got the call.  Like his younger counterpart, Gosney also limited his opponent, Geneseo, to just 4 hits in a complete game shutout of his own.  Fittingly, the last out of the game was made by Korchak on a fly ball to first.

Miller said the two always pair up to throw during practice and are always the last one's off the field.  It's that chemistry that gives the Saints the confidence in the big games.

Meanwhile, at Conlon Field on the Southside, Hancock's season came to an end in the Class D State Finals at the hands of Section II's Fort Ann.  The Dukes dominated Section IV's Wildcats by a score of 14-0.
