SIDNEY – The Norwich Pony League team successfully secured a trip to the finals in their post season play when they traveled to Sidney on Saturday, July 16, to narrowly edge Cobleskill for a 2-1 win.
“We have done nothing but dominate teams, then we come out and grind out a 2-1 win,” said Norwich head coach Nick McCullough. “We can beat any team and we do whatever we can to get the win.”
Norwich would see the early lead over Cobleskill when they sent a runner in in just the first inning to earn the 1-0 lead.
“It looked like one of those games where we could snag three or four runs on them. But their pitcher settled down, and shut us down for pretty much the rest of the game. By far the toughest competition we've faced all season. It was a well fought battle on both sides,” said coach McCullough.
The early lead would slip away late from Norwich as Mike Trevisani, pitcher for Norwich, would allow a late tying run for Cobleskill in the top of the sixth inning.
