Congratulations go out to Canton, Connecticut Women’s Softball League’s first four-in-a-row Tournament winner! Coach Charley Batan and his team held off some very tough competition in defeating West Hartford, Rocky Hill, and the Cinderella Ellington team. Powerhouse Canton has now claimed the title for the fourth time in four years.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the Tournament (after the fact that the sun came out in the afternoon after a very wet morning) was the case of Ellington, a Cinderella team if there ever was one.
Seeded 6 of 6 going into the Tournament, Ellington got to the Gold Bracket Tournament game, and gave eventual winner Canton a fine fight for the first four innings before eventually tiring in the 5th.
Congratulations, Ellington, you certainly deserve it.
We salute Bristol, who won the Silver Bracket in the 2014 Connecticut Women’s Softball League Tournament today, beating the exceptionally talented #1 seed CT Tides.
The Final 2014 Gold and Silver Bracket Games have been determined. Three-time defending champion Canton will play Ellington for the Gold Championship Game, and the CT Tides will play Bristol for the Silver Championship Game. Both games are set for July 27, 2014 at 3pm. The Gold Championship Game is at Canton High School, and the Silver Championship is at River Road Field in Canton, CT. Feel free to come on down to watch championship softball, CTWSL-style!
Due to weather related issues, the Gold and Sliver Championship games have been moved up an hour to 3pm. Please make a note of it if you’re planning to attend…we’d love to see you!

Our Player of the Week for July 13,2014 is Lauren Esposito of the CT Tides, recognized for the second time this season. On the heels of her no-hitter against Rocky Hill on July 9, Lauren tossed a 3-hit shutout against West Hartford, in addition to having 5 stolen bases on the day. Honorable mention goes to Danielle Leone of Canton who hurled a 5-hitter, with 5 strikeouts and no walks, in a victory over Rocky Hill.
Today, July 20, 2014, marks the final regular season games in the Connectiuct Women’s Softball League 2014 season. Many positions in the standings are still up for grabs, making this an exciting week to be playing and watching softball.
Coaches, remember to call scores in early, so we can crown a regular season winner and determine the Season-End Tournament schedule.
