Friday was scheduled to be my day off, so my colleague Vin Mercogliano covered the Class C final between Tuckahoe and Haldane at my alma mater, North Rockland. And man, did he get a great game to watch.
Haldane scored two unearned runs off Tigers starter Cassie McGrath, who struck out 12 and allowed just two hits in the win. Tuckahoe tied it up in the sixth with a two-run triple by Alessia Conte (right).
Tuckahoe will play Chester or Pine Plains in the state regional semifinals Thursday back at North Rockland at 3 p.m. The Section 9 champion will be crowned Saturday. Game time is scheduled for 11 a.m.
