Softball: Wilton 10U all-stars win district opener

The Wilton 10U softball all-stars opened district play with a 20-9 victory over Ridgefield at East Ridge Middle School on Sunday afternoon.

Wilton's next game is Wednesday at 5:45, against Redding-Easton at Middlebrook School.

Wilton broke the game open early with six runs in the top of the first inning, capped off by Talia Tarling’s two-out, two RBI single. Wilton scored runs in every frame, and never looked back.

“It was a total team effort,” commented manager John D’Elisa. “We got contributions from every player today. I am happy for the girls to get their first district win.”

Delaney Liston started on the mound for Wilton, and Maya Farrell was strong in relief, allowing only three runs in the last four innings while striking out eight.

Victoria Richards scored three runs for Wilton, including a steal of home plate in the third inning. Kate Murray followed by driving in two runs with a booming double to left field. Chrissy D’Elisa also singled, scored and had a spectacular catch of a hard-hit line drive in the sixth inning to help seal the victory.
