Ellington All-Stars Take Section 4 Title

The Ellington 11-12 All-Star defeated Mansfield 7-3 to win the Connecticut Section 4  Little League baseball championship Saturday afternoon in Killingtly.
Ellington, which captured its second District 8 title in three years last week, continued it’s magical post-season run and will now advance to a four-team playoff to determine the state champion. Ellington will play next Friday at 5:30 p.m. in Guilford against either Waterford or Newington.
In the sectional final, Ellington was led by pitcher Will Lally who tossed a complete game and also sparked the offense with two-run home run in the second inning. Eric Thibert also cracked a 2-run homer in the third inning to help Ellington stretch its lead.
Other offensive standouts included Kyle Lenz  who added three hit’s and Brendan Birmingham, Mike Bontempo, Rachel Shaw and Darren Zahner also added hits.
