Kaitlyn "Fishbone" Newman pitched 6 complete innings for the win. The offense was powered by Breanna "Roadrunner" Saldivar who went 2 for 3 and broke the game open in the 4 inning with an in the park grand slam. Dominique "Nique" Highsmith and Cheyenne "Midget" Trinidad had two hits each and Janelle "Squirrel" Franklin scored three times for Middletown. However, our admirable offense wouldn't be anywhere without the defensive efforts of Mikayla "Chipmunk" Tine, Alexandra "A-Wow" Marchand, Arianna "Monkey" Scionti, Carley "Bucket" Gessaro, Michele "Butterfingers" Barbour, Amanda "Flipflop" Perrotta and Elizabeth " Lolipop" Joy that made the difference in the game. Middletown played against Guilford, East Hampton, Madison and Chester/Deep River and went 4 -0 in their pool to advance to the semi-finals where they beat Haddam and advanced to the Championship game. Middletown will now move on to Sectionals in East Hampton over the next week.
