“We couldn’t get our runners home with a timely hit and they did,” Milford coach Bill Garfield said after Fairfield Little League posted an 8-2 decision in the 11U state championship game in Trumbull on Thursday night. “I want our players to never forget that they came such a long way in such a short period of time together.
“Most of the players on this team also won Districts last year. Now, they got to the state finals. The best part for the coaches are that they are all great kids. Milford Softball 12’s made it to the District finals, and the 10s won states. From the lower ages to the top, Milford Softball is in good shape.”
