Things got dramatic at Saturday’s Section II Class AA championship game when Niskayuna’s Tyler Senecal collided in with Shenendehowa catcher Kyle Douglas.

Senecal, who was named the Suburban Council’s most valuable player in the regular season, was promptly ejected as the Shen bench emptied for a potential good old American tousle at the plate.

But there would be no brawl, as the Niskayuna bench stayed put.

Despite losing their No.3 hitter to the first inning ejection, the Silver Warriors held on to win the war – defeating the defending New York State Champions 4-0.

The win is the first Section II title in program history at Niskayuna.
