Masuk sharp in win over Pomperaug

on
Howdy, Cardillo here checking in after Masuk’s 8-1 win over Pomperaug Friday afternoon. Not a lot to say, frankly. Kind of a ho-hum game that took forever, in part to a widely inconsistent strikezone that neither team seemed too happy about. Masuk, No. 5 in this week’s Register poll, deserves its billing as a Top […] [Read More]

St. Joseph’s bats break out

on
Howdy, Cardillo checking in here after St. Joseph’s 13-0 five-inning win over previously unbeaten Danbury Wednesday afternoon. Pretty sure the Cadets’ 12-run third inning is finally over.

In a 3-0 win over Norwich Free Academy she struck out all 21 batters she faced, en route to a rare  perfect game as reported by the New London Day.

Diamond Vision: Law stops Foran

on
Howdy, Cardillo checking in after Law’s walk-off 2-1 win over Foran Wednesday afternoon. Here’s a couple thoughts: * Law’s celebration was about as big as you’ll see for a regular season game, which makes sense since the team has gone two years without a state tournament appearance and beat their city rivals, who happened to […] [Read More]
