WESTPORT, Conn. – The Westport Little League All-Stars rode the no-hit pitching of Chad Knight to an 8-0 win over Edgewood on Thursday in Stamford in its first game in the Section 1 Little League Tournament.
Westport will play Orange on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Federal Field in Stamford. Westport is undefeated this summer in eight games in District 2 and Section 1 tournament play.
Knight was the story in Thursday’s win. He fanned 13 batters and got stronger as the game went on. Edgewood, the District 5 champion, was silenced one night after scoring 23 runs in a win over Stamford National.
Westport took a 1-0 lead in the second on an RBI by Ricky Offenberg. Charlie Roof’s solo home run made it 2-0, and Matt Brown’s two-run double made it 4-0.
Westport is representing District 2 in the Section 1 tournament for the first time since 2003.
