Warde edged out, 6-5, by Southington in semis

The Fairfield Warde baseball team had a magnificent journey in the postseason come to and end on Tuesday in the semifinals of the Class LL state tournament at Muzzy Field in Bristol at the hands of Southington by a 6-5 margin.

The #3 seed 19-3 Blue Knights had to hold their breath as the #15 seed 18-9 Mustangs had the game-tying run just 90 feet away when the final out was recorded. It was only fitting that it would end in this manner as Fairfield Warde has been walking a tight rope winning eight straight games, including its first-ever FCIAC Championship over the past two weeks.
