BINGHAMTON — Hudson Valley gave up three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, the final two on a single to center field, to lost to Central, 6-5, in the bronze-medal game.
"I'm very happy with the team," said Hudson Valley infielder Lexi Garbowski, a graduate of Our Lady of Lourdes High School seen here. "We're a very young team, and the girls who are younger really stepped up."
Hudson Valley rebounded from a pair of losses on Thursday to win three straight games to earn its berth in the bronze-medal game.
Orange County's Melissa Oliphant hit a two-run home run to left in the top of the seventh that broke a 3-3 tie — Arlington's Amy Weinberg scored ahead of her — only to see Central rally in the bottom of the frame.
