On demand: Trumbull at Stamford softball

The Trumbull Eagles travel to the City that Works to take on the Stamford Black Knights in a key FCIAC softball game with less than a week left in the 2016 regular season. You can watch the game live (or later on-demand) in the video player below:


The Thursday, May 12, game is scheduled for a 4:15 p.m. first pitch at Stamford High School.

Third place Trumbull (12-4, 10-3 in the FCIAC) is a win away from clinching a spot in the eight-team FCIAC tournament, which starts next week. Stamford controls its own destiny in the tightly packed conference. The Black Knights (9-7, 8-5) come into Thursday in fifth place tied with Danbury (but Stamford holds the tiebreaker after beating the Hatters earlier this season in a game carried live on HAN). Here's a link to the complete playoff standings.
