Wilton wins Senior Legion state opener

Because the Wilton Senior American Legion baseball team didn't pick up where it left off, it will now move on.

After dropping eight of its final 10 regular-season games and barely qualifying for the state tournament, Wilton began the post-season with a 4-3 victory over Shelton on Saturday in Shelton.

Wilton (14-14) will now face Bethel in a second-round Southern Division state playoff game Sunday at 1 at Bethel High School.

The winner of that game meets Greenwich in the third round on Monday at 4:30 at Greenwich High School.
