Martin gained the save by fanning five batters over the final three scoreless innings. The Heuvelton defense also did its job with errorless baseball. “We had one bad inning early. That’s all it takes,” said Harrisville Coach Shane Countryman. “They got some big plays. We had chances and just didn’t get it done. We had a good season.” The key to Heuvelton’s win included five runs before the first out in the third inning. Jordan Macaulay had two hits, while Chris Sullivan registered a double and scored a run. Heuvelton advances to the Region II semifinal against Section II's Oppenheim-Ephratah-St. Johnsville. The Pirates closed out at 15-2 overall and a regular-season co-championship.

Heuvelton’s Jack Palmer laces a line drive into rightfield for a single. The Bulldogs advanced to the New York State Final Four for the first time in eight years, with a nail-biting 4-3 victory over the Lake Placid Blue Bombers in the New York State Region II championship (state quarterfinal). But the final inning did not end without a few anxious moments and a bit of controversy. Eight Bulldogs collected a total of 11 hits in pulling out the win. Palmer tossed five scoreless innings, then gave way to Mike Martin for the final two frames. Dylan Liscum led the Bulldogs with three singles, while Martin slashed a double and a single and Palmer scored twice on a pair of singles. Heuvelton built a 4-0 lead, before Placid rallied in the late innings. With Heuvelton clinging to a 4-3 lead, one out in the bottom of the seventh inning and Lake Placid runners on second and third base, Bomber Ryan Damp looped the fly ball to the outfield. Heuvelton rightfielder Joe McDonnell raced in and juggled the ball up into the air, but managed to hang on. He then relayed the ball to the infield, while Lake Placid’s Dan Moore scampered home with what appeared to be the tying run. The Bulldogs appealed that the runner left too soon and, after a brief conference, the umpires ruled that Moore had not touched third base in edging back to tag up, thus ending the game. Heuvelton advances to the New York State Final Four in Binghamton for the first time since 2006.
