Earlier in Game 1, Husson captured a 5-2 victory.

Nick Thomas led off the bottom of the ninth with a single. Maxwell followed with a double. Frank Leger was intentionally walked to load the bases.
Eddy Garcia hit a soft chopper to shortstop Kobe Rogerson, who bobbled the ball. That allowed Thomas to score.

Thomas had two hits, including a double. Chris Kordziel also doubled.
SUNY Cobleskill had a 2-0 lead in the fourth inning of the opener. But Husson scored three runs in its half of the fourth, highlighted by Chris Ewanik’s two-run homer.
