Little League Softball: Wilton 12s even district series

After a tough extra-innings loss in the first game of the Little League District One tournament, the Wilton 12-under softball all-star team bounced back on Saturday with a 9-2 win over Darien at Challenger Field in Darien.

The best-of-three district championship series comes down to the final game, scheduled for today at 5:45 at Middlebrook School.

In Saturday’s win, Wilton scored two runs in the first inning and never looked back, as pitcher Brianna Catino kept Darien from getting many hits. Wilton’s bats were on fire, with runners in scoring position each inning. Sophia Strazza scored three runs and Hannah Belanger scored two runs.
