Wally and I made a Sunday trip to Orange to check out the Little League Junior Softball Regional Tournament. It was Connecticut East(Coginchaug) taking on Massachusetts. The girls from Conn. East really loved my Wally, but then who wouldn't.
Pretty close game until Conn. broke it open in the 4th and added 3 more in the 5th for a 13-3 victory. The game was stopped due to the 10 run mercy rule after 5 innings.
Leading Conn. East were Katrina Mancini, Kelly Boothroyd, Skye Ryer and Natalie Turner.
Conn. East is now 2-1 in Pool Play. They will face Maine at 2pm on Monday.
The winner of this Regional Tournament advances to the Junior Softball World Series in Kirkland, Washington.
