Two In a Row For The Tigers

Make some room in the Cohoes High trophy case. The softball team is bringing back another Section II Class B championship plaque.

It was the matchup we all imagined at the beginning of the season. 2007 Class C state champion Hoosic Valley against 2007 Class B state semifinalist Cohoes.
Hoosic Valley played in Class B this season because of slightly larger enrollment numbers at the school.

Hoosic Valley ace Jen Mineau against Cohoes' Courtney Galuski.

Of course it would come down to one run.

Cohoes' Jenn Ahearn got plunked by a Mineau pitch but got up and took first base. Steph LaDue singled and Ahearn came around to score on a throwing error.

Galuski held the Indians off the basepaths and center fielder Mary Kellogg made three great catches, including an assist on a double play at second base.

The win snapped Hoosic Valley's 44-game winning streak and the Indians were also ranked No. 1 in the state coming in.

Check out the full story in Saturday's Record, as well as recounts of the Shen-Colonie and Mechanicville-Duanesburg games. Click over here for the full and final brackets in each class.

Cohoes advances to the state regionals on Wednesday at the Adirondack Sports Complex in Queensbury. Click here for easy directions off Exit 18 of the Northway. The Tigers face the winner of the Section VII/Section X first round game, which will be played on Monday.

Cohoes beat Northeastern Clinton 2-1 in last year's regionals to move on to the semifinal and final rounds held in Binghamton.

COIN TOSS...that is what I predicted for the HV-Cohoes game.
Seems that might be what the HV coach may be questioning now?
Why would they select being the Away Team giving them 1 less at bat? I think they thought that they would hit Galuski better then they did, and then come in and shut Cohoes down. Galuski and Dearstyne make a great combo! Dearstyne knows hitting and knows how to call pitches against batting weaknesses. She is a smart catcher who calls the right pitches for specific batters and Courtney does very well hitting her spots. I knew if Cohoes played well they had a chance.
Mineau is a great pitcher and she will go on to have a great career at Fordham. I am very proud of Cohoes pulling through when no one thought they would! Good luck in Regionals, and I hope you come home with a State Championship!!
You truly deserve it!!

Nevermind the fact that the reason HV was away was because Cohoes won the coin toss...

When you are away, your are GUARANTEED 7 at bats. So your little theory that HV lost because of the fact that they were away is ridiculous.

And btw, Hoosic Valley was hitting the ball quite well and making some good contact. Cohoes basically played flawless defense and their center fielder pretty much saved the game for them with a handful of HUGE catches.

Good luck to Cohoes! Show the rest of the state Section II is a force to be reckoned with!
