I ventured out to Wallingford on Tuesday afternoon to take in Lauralton Hall at Lyman Hall in a 1st Round Class L matchup in the CIAC State Tournament. It turned out to be another dandy. Lyman Hall scored 2 runs in the bottom of the 6th inning to nip Lauralton Hall 4-3. Lauralton had scored a run in the top of the 6th inning to take a 3-2 lead.
Maddie Shura was the winning pitcher. Samantha Carbone and Alex Tenero had 3 hits each for Lyman Hall. Carbone was the Willy George DeMaio Top Dog of the Game.
Emma Larke, Maggie Britt and Gianna Coppola all had 2 hits each for Lauralton Hall.
Lyman Hall advances to the 2nd Round and will play at Joel Barlow on Wednesday.

So off I go again. There are several interesting games to pick from. But I think I've settled on my choice. I will be heading down Rt. 34 - to a street that I just love its name - Bungay - Notre Dame(Ffld) at Seymour - 2nd Round action.
The winner goes to the Quarterfinals. So off I go - my chair and me( what happened to my white bucket you ask), yes I graduated to a chair(some back pain forced that issue)
I head off to the Valley
Lancers - Wildcats - and ME
