Town of Dickinson, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Seton Catholic Central baseball team rode a great pitching performance into the state semifinals, and now look for more great performances to get to the state championship.

The Saints are back in the state semis for the first time since 2009. That year they lost in the final four round. This year, Seton has used some timely hitting and rallies in the later innings to propel the Saints to the big stage.

They say the keys to victory are to just keep doing what they've been doing.

"We know nobody after this point is going to be a lay down team so we just have to keep going," said Patrick Gosney. "Playing hard like we usually do and hopefully it pays off, all the hard work we've put in all season."

"Make sure we're healthy, get a few days of practice in," said coach Jim Miller. "We were there in 2009, these guys weren't in that program at the time, but we have some experience from that trip. It's a great day."

Seton takes on Pierson-Bridgeh'ton Saturday in the Class C semifinals at 10 a.m. over at BCC.
