STAMFORD — The Stamford softball team looks poised to make another postseason run after a hard-fought win against Amity Regional, with a 1-0 on Thursday in the second round of the CIAC Class L Tournament.
“Amity is a great team, and we’re very happy to come out on top,” Stamford coach Tony Esposito said. “Sara pitched a great game, it was a total team effort. Everything fell into place. I’m very proud of the way these kids played.”
Four innings went by without a score on Stamford’s home field. Both teams stayed strong defensively, but could not string together any type of run that could have produced a lead.
Stamford made two crucial plays early, the first of which came in the top of the third where catcher Tori Cuscuna caught an Amity runner stealing second and connected with Nikki Pease to get the out. In the top of the fourth, centerfielder Lauren O’Neill made a running catch in the outfield to prevent a possible double.
