Mystic reaches title game


WEST HAVEN — Caroline Taber pitched a five-inning no-hitter striking out 13 as the Mystic-Groton Junior softball All-Stars whipped Rhode Island 20-0 in the East Regional Little League tournament Monday morning.

The victory qualified Mystic, which is 2-0 in the tournament, for the New England championship on Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. It’s opponent will be determined today.

Taber only walked two batters as the game was stopped early by the mercy rule. Taber also had a big game at the plate going 4 for 5 with four RBIs, four runs scored and a triple. Jayden Delaporta was 3 for 5 with three runs scored and a double.

Brook Arruda, Mackenzie Aldridge, Olivia Knotts, Taylor Kenyon and Emily Adams finished with two hits each.

Knotts drove in three runs and hit a double off the top of the center field fence that bounced back onto the field. Adams, Kenyon and Arruda drove in two runs each.

Aldridge drove in two runs and doubled.

Nalissa Amar also scored three times and drove in two runs.

Mystic-Groton led 8-0 after two innings. If Mystic-Groton wins on Wednesday it would play at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday against the Mid-Atlantic champion for a trip to the World Series in Kirkland, Wash.
