May 13—The Oneonta baseball team suffered its first loss of the season Monday as the Yellowjackets fell to Owego Free Academy 8-0 in the Southern Tier Athletic Conference title game.

Grayson Brockington had a double for OHS while Britten Zeh added a single.

Oneonta made it to the finals in dramatic fashion on Saturday with a 5-1 victory over Vestal thanks to a walk-off grand slam by Bruce Mistler in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Tanner Tubia opened the scoring with an RBI double in the fifth inning, but Vestal was able to send the game into extras with a run in the top of the seventh.

In the bottom of the eighth, Nolan Stark and Brady Carr had back-to-back singles and Jameson Brown was intentionally walked to load the bases. Mistler promptly took a 3-2 pitch deep over the left field fence to end the game.
