Look what Tilcon did

Tilcon Little League, that is

Underdog Tilcon swept to through the playoffs to win the championship in the majors division of the North Branford Little League.
In what turned out to be a heavyweight fight to rival Hagler Hearns, Tilcon scored 7 unanswered runs in the top of the 6th inning, capped off by a 3 run home run by Chris Russo. The key blow was a two-out, two-run double by Sean Meehan in the gap to tie the score at 9.
Justin Krawec got the scoring started with a first inning grand slam and Matt Chamberlain followed with a solo shot in the second. Tilcon got timely hitting from Cam Reshotnik, Lou Distaisio, Dustin Phabmixay, Steve McGovern, Christian Diaz, Peter Murphy and Derek Grzebisz throughout the game in this seesaw battle. With gritty starting pitching from Justin Krawec, Tilcon got strong relief pitching from Chris Russo, Cam Reshotnik and Matt Chamberlain to preserve a 12-9 victory and a 4 game sweep of the playoffs!
