Foran High vs. Jonathan Law: A Softball - Baseball Doubleheader Part Two

After the boy's game was over, the girls took over on the adjoining softball field for a game that was even more entertaining.

Law came roaring out of the box in the first inning, hitting two homers in jumping out to a 7-0 lead. After Law added to their lead to make it 9-0, the Lady Lions started chipping away, eventually tying the score at 10. Amanda Leone singled home Cassidy Boath in the bottom of the seventh inning Law an 11-10 victory in walk-off fashion.

Fairfield Prep vs. Westhill High - CIAC Class LL Boys Basketball Finals

In the fourth game Saturday (!), Fairfield Prep took on Westhill High for the Class LL title. Prep hadn't won the state title since 1997, and after losing in the finals in 2011, 2013, and 2014, the Jesuits rightfully wondered if they would ever get over the hump again. Led by Patrick Harding with 13 points, and Rich Kelly and Thomas Nolan adding 12 apiece, Prep held on to win 51-50.
