Westport American defeated Monroe, 11-9, Friday night in the District 2 Little League Baseball tournament for 12-year-olds. Westport will meet Fairfield American in the finals of the double-elimination tournament. Westport plays Fairfield American at 1 p.m. Saturday, and needs to win to force a winner-take-all contest.
Friday's victory comes on the heels of a dramatic victory on Thursday, when Ian Burns hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the sixth to lift Westport American over Fairfield National.
