Ichabod Crane tops Averill Park in Class A title game

Ichabod Crane third baseman Alex Mastrianni is about to hit head coach Jack Brady in the face with a shaving cream pie after the Riders defeated Averill Park in the Section II Class A title game, 6-2. For the video of this incident, click below. (Vidcap by Will Montgomery).

TROY -- Jack Brady came back to the Collar City Wednesday night and did something he had never done before as a high school baseball coach.

He watched his team win a Section II championship.

In his second year at the helm at Ichabod Crane after spending many years before that at Troy High School, Brady saw his starting pitcher, Josh Ingham, pump the Averill Park lineup with strikes in the Class A title game at Joe Bruno Stadium.

The Central Connecticut State University-bound Ingham allowed two unearned runs on six hits, striking out eight and throwing first-pitch strikes to 18 of the 29 batters he faced in a 6-2 victory.

"He threw an awful lot of first-pitch strikes and we were in the hole right off the bat every at-bat," said Averill Park head coach Mike Conroy.

For the full story, check out Thursday's edition of The Record.

Ichabod Crane's Zach Albery slides in front of Averill Park's Tyler Listing during Wednesday's Section II Class A title game.

Averill Park had its ace on the mound in Nick Cioffi, but the Warriors quickly, and unusually, found themselves behind in the ballgame.

Ichabod Crane's first three batters all came around to score in the first inning and the Riders added two more in the second to post an early 5-0 advantage.

"All of a sudden, you get down 3-0 and the nerves kick in a little bit with everyone else," Conroy said. "That doesn’t usually happen with Nick on the mound."

Averill Park's Greg Hotaling makes a catch in center field at Joe Bruno Stadium during Wednesday's game against Averill Park.

Averill Park pitcher Nick Cioffi responded well after allowing back-to-back RBI singles by Derick Horn and Alex Mastrianni in the second inning. He held the Riders to one run on three hits the rest of the way, finishing the game with 10 strikeouts.

Sophomore Dylan Sprague drove in a run with a two-out single in the fifth inning. Greg Hotaling had scored earlier in the inning on a fielding error.

Sprague’s older brother Josh Sprague, was the only senior in the starting lineup for the Warriors, which has Conroy and his youthful team already hungry for 2011.

"We had one senior in the lineup tonight and there were some great characters and some great influences on the younger guys, but we’re very young," said Conroy. "We will be back."

Jack is a great guy and deserves this victory and any after this. He was great at Troy High and was let go . . . he is too knowledgeable to be out of baseball and was picked up by Ichabod Crane and they are deserving of everything he has done for their program. Keep up the good work Jack . . . your team played very well.
