Northeastern Clinton’s Johni Rae Coryea (8) is in safely with a stolen base as the throw is wide to Cohoes shortstop Steph LaDue in second inning of Class C regional softball game Wednesday, June 6, 2007 at Plattsburgh State. Cohoes won 1-0 on Meghan Welcome’s lead-off homer in the seventh.

Exactly a year ago today, the Cohoes softball team won its first ever game in the state playoffs, a 1-0 victory over Northeastern Clinton. Now, the Tigers will have to beat the state's No. 1 team, Hoosic Valley, just to advance to Wednesday's regional game.

Game time for all five sectional titles is 5 pm Friday afternoon at Clifton Commons. A section-wide awards ceremony precedes the action at 4:15 pm.

Cohoes slugged its way to the Class B title in 2007, beating Greenville 13-2 in the semis and top-seeded Chatham 14-1 in the final.
The Tigers squeaked past Greenville in the semis again with a 2-1 victory on Tuesday. And four Cohoes seniors, as they've done all season, came up big.
Pitcher Courtney Galuski struck out ten and held the Spartans to one run.
Shortstop Jenn Ahearn hit a solo homer - it was Cohoes' only hit.
Catcher Jess Dearstyne tagged and scored the winning run when second baseman Steph LaDue lined to short in the bottom of the seventh.

The big four will have to come up big again today and find a way to solve Hoosic Valley's unhittable ace, Jen Mineau.

Check out the full story on Cohoes in Friday's Record. We will be there to pick up the Hoosic Valley-Cohoes game as well as Mechanicville's battle against Duanesburg in the CC/C playoff game.
I caught Mechanicville's game against Lake George in the CC final and the Red Raiders look unstoppable. They laid down six bunts in the first and second inning, capitalizing on the Warriors' surprise at all the bunts.

But, the Duanesburg game is a bit of a rivalry. Coaches from both teams work together with a 14U team during the summer and most of the players are familiar with each other.
With all the playoff experience the Red Raiders have, plus the stellar pitching of freshman hurler Anna Arceneaux, Mechanicville could be poised for a big run in the Cs now that Hoosic Valley is up in the Bs.

The Shen Plainsmen will have their hands full with a Colonie team that's picked a great time to start playing their best softball of the season. Still, the Garnet Raiders will need to manufacture some runs off Shen ace Mandy Ferro playing in her backyard.

In the A game, South High, by all accounts, should dispatch Burnt Hills. But the Spartans already knocked off Lansingburgh and there is something to be said for playing a tough Suburban schedule and then moving down into A play.

All the games tomorrow should be great (click for brackets) - and hopefully the rain holds off.
