Our 11-12 Westport District All-Stars play Fairfield for the District 2 Title tomorrow night at 5:30 pm at Meyer Field. We beat them Tuesday 1-0 in 10 (!!!) innings but were out-cheered by Fairfield. They turned out in large numbers all dressed in red and were really loud. So we're calling on you to overpower them. Come dressed in navy or white! Travel players, wear your jerseys. Mylar navy balloons would be great too but mostly - SHOW UP and support our team!!!
On June 30 Westport's 12U All-Star team found themselves in a scoreless tie in the tenth inning against rival Fairfield. The game was tense throughout, and featured great defensive stops in key moments from players such as third baseman Aydan Moskowitz, shortstop Sonia Trinkle as well as outfielders Reilly Caldwell and Charlotte Porzio.
Pitcher Sophia Alfero sizzled as she mowed down the Fairfield batters the entire game without surrendering a single walk. The gritty Westport All-Stars were finally able to manufacture a run in the tenth inning by inducing a walk to Caldwell followed by a perfect sacrifice bunt from Porzio which then set up an RBI double from Maisie Dembski which scored by pinch runner Jennifer Westphal that put Westport up 1-0.
That was all the run support Alfero needed, as she closed out the game by retiring the next 3 batters in the bottom of the 10th.
Fairfield All-Stars will take on the Trumbull All-Stars on Thursday 5:30 a Meyer field, with the winner opposing Westport on Friday back at Meyer field at 5:30
