Westport Little League Aims For First Section 1 Title

Photo Credit:

WESTPORT, Conn. – The Westport Little League All-Stars play for the Section 1 championship Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Scalzi Park in Stamford.

Westport will meet Edgewood in the championship game. If Westport wins, it will capture its first Section 1 tournament title. A loss by Westport would force a winner-take-all game Wednesday, also in Stamford.

Westport defeated Edgewood previously in the tournament, 8-0, on a no-hitter by Chad Knight. On Saturday, the team faced perhaps its stiffest test of the summer so far when it held off Orange, 5-3. Ricky Offenberg’s lead-off home run in the fourth inning snapped a 3-3 tie. Harry Azadian’s RBI single in the fifth added an insurance run.

Orange brought the tying run to the plate in the sixth before reliever pitcher Charlie Roof shut the door.

Westport is 9-0 this summer and won its first District 2 title in 10 years. The Section 1 champion advances to the state championship series against the Section 2 winner. The state tournament is a best-of-three tournament and begins Saturday in Southington.
