Becca Tillotson raced home from second on a combined wild pitch/throwing error on Tuesday afternoon, giving the No. 2 seed Masuk softball team a 7-6 walk-off win over Foran in the Class L semifinals at Stratford’s Frank DeLuca Field. The Panthers will face Fitch for the state championship Friday at 7 p.m. at Biondi Field in West Haven.
The win, in a game where the lead changed hands five times, sends the 21-4 Panthers into the championship game against undefeated and top-ranked Fitch of Groton. The Falcons defeated fourth-seed Torrington, 3-0, in the other semi-round contest played at DeLuca Field.
