Mystic posts shutout in East opener


WEST HAVEN, Conn. — Mystic-Groton’s Junior softball All-Stars pushed across two runs in the sixth inning and beat West Haven 2-0 in their opening game of the Little League East Regional Saturday afternoon.

Mystic-Groton scored both of its runs in the top of the sixth inning. Nicole Vignato reached on an error and Caroline Taber followed with a double to bring her home.

Mackenzie Aldridge followed with a single to score Taber.

Taber earned the victory pitching all seven innings and limited the West Haven All-Star team, which is hosting the event, to just one hit. She walked two batters and struck out six.

The District 4 pitcher limited Mystic-Groton to four hits and struck out 14. Taber had two of Mystic-Groton’s hits.

“It was a heck of a pitcher’s duel,” Mystic-Groton coach Tom Taber, who is Caroline Taber’s father, said.

Mystic-Groton will play again on Monday at 9:30 a.m. against an opponent to be determined.

Mystic-Groton, the two-time Connecticut state champion, is one off five teams playing in the New England pool. State champions from Massachusetts, Maine and Rhode Island are also playing.

The Mid Atlantic pool includes state champions from Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York and New Jersey.

The best two teams from each pool will play Thursday for the title.
