Foran vs. Law on Friday afternoon turned out to be a pretty dramatic softball game by the time it was all said and done. The Lions were up 5-0, but held on to narrowly win 6-5. Law had the tying and go-ahead runs on base. A lot was expected of both these teams coming into […] [Read More]

Staples an early season surprise in FCIAC

Rocky Hill No. 1 in final softball poll

on
Upsets galore in the state tournament meant this was probably the most difficult New Haven Register poll — for any sport — I’ve had to vote in over the years since there didn’t seem to be a clear-cut No. 1 team. A week ago the big debate seemed to be who would be No. 1 […] [Read More]

Rockville-Foran, Class L: it all ends somewhere

on
Foran finishes 25-2, but after 19 wins in a row, that second loss comes in the last game of the year. Tough way to go. Rockville waited, then hit. Rams coach Frank Levick said he found video of Foran sophomore pitcher Jess Harkness that convinced him they needed to be patient early. Harkness walked two […] [Read More]
