Oxford 5, Unadilla Valley 3
OXFORD–A dramatic finish in Oxford end in defeat for Unadilla Valley and a save for the Blackhawk Kyle Crawford.
The Storm’s starter, Mason Alford, lead off the bottom of the seventh; down two, with a single.
Catcher Andrew Radke followed suit and after an Austin Taylor walk, the bases were loaded without an out.
When Brendan Brooker hit a medium range fly ball into center field, nobody though that it was the beginning of the end for UV... except for Cameron Heggie.
The Oxford center-fielder made and incredible catch and fired the baseball to senior catcher Matt Moore for a very close second out at the plate.
Closer Kyle Crawford worked Connor Pope into a ground out shortly after and the cold, rainy game had ended.
“The parity in the MAC this year is pretty decent... anybody can beat anybody. I take my hat off to Oxford,” said Unadilla Valley varsity baseball head coach Gary Alford.
Oxford plays Afton at home today and Unadilla Valley is at home against Deposit.

Oxford 8, Bainbridge-Guilford 2
OXFORD–Oxford’s Cameron Heggie threw an efficient 75 pitch complete game to beat the Bainbridge-Guilford Bobcats Tuesday.
Throwing only 11 pitches per inning, with a strike percentage of 76 percent, heggie hit his spots and sat down six.
“(Heggie) was throwing it loose and easy,” said Oxford varsity baseball head coach Chris Palmer, “He looked really good today.”
On a dreary day, when most high school baseball was postponed, the Blackhawks had eight players with base hits and five players with two or more hits.
Cameron Heggie helped his cause, going 2-4 with two runs and two stolen bases.
Jeff Lawton went 2-4, Matt Moore was 2-3, Joe Nelson went 2-3 and Kevin Davis was 2-2 with two scored runs.
