on

SCC Final: What was that?

on
The play was designed to — well, no, it wasn’t exactly designed. Jeff Bevino confirmed it before Dani Kemp did: Bevino gave no sign to call the game-winning play in Foran’s 7-6 victory over Amity in Saturday’s SCC final.

SCC semis: Foran doing damage

on
This was almost a good game. Well, let’s not go nuts here: Surely if you’re a Foran fan you loved it under any circumstances, and when things end up 8-0, it’s hard to say this wasn’t going in a direction.

Seymour is NVL Champion

on
Once again, the Seymour softball team is champion of the NVL. Thursday the Wildcats beat a very solid Torrington team 1-0 at Naugatuck High. Seymour, the No. 1 ranked team in the state poll, improved to 23-0. Not a ton of action, as you’d expect in a one-run game. Amanda Willette manufactured a run by […] [Read More]
