Despite losing eight of its final 10 games, the Wilton Senior American Legion baseball team is still headed to the state tournament.

Wilton (13-14) will play Shelton in a first-round state sectional game Saturday at noon in Shelton. The winner meets Bethel on Sunday at 1 in Bethel.

Wilton finished tied with Westport for the fifth and final state playoff berth in Zone 4 but got the fifth seed on the head-to-head tiebreaker. Wilton won two of three games from Westport during the regular season.

Under this year's revised tournament format, the top-five teams in each of the eight state zones qualified for states. Twenty teams, including Wilton, are in the Southern Division (Zones 2, 3, 4 and 5) and 20 more are in the Northern Division (Zones 1, 6, 7 and 8).
