The Fairfield Warde softball team can't seem to break the hex of Trumbull.

The Mustangs lost for the sixth year in a row to the Eagles, as Brianna Passero reached base five times, with a run scored and an RBI as Trumbull beat Warde 8-4 on Wednesday afternoon at Fairfield Warde High School.

"We came out a little flat," Warde coach Gary Quiricone said, "and we couldn't recover in the late innings."

Trumbull batted around in the fourth inning, scoring four times, taking a 4-0 lead that it never relinquished. Eight different Eagles scored as Trumbull won for the fourth game in a row.

Warde catcher Alyssa Borowy was 2-3 with two doubles and two runs scored. Borowy also drove in a run on her double in the fourth inning, which scored pitcher Heather Vanderheyden. Vanderheyden was 1 for 2 with a single.

"Alyssa had a great day," Quiricone said. "But we need to bunch up those hits to make it count scoring runs."

The Mustangs managed just two hits in the first six innings off of Trumbull pitcher Nicole Cammarota. The Mustangs managed just six hits in the game.

"Their pitcher kept us off balance," Quiricone said. "We've got to be more consistent."

All the while, Trumbull built an 8-2 helped by Warde miscues, and a key dropped flyball in the fourth inning, and a wild pitch which allowed Trumbull's fifth run to score.

"We made some defensive mistakes," Quiricone said.

In the bottom of the seventh Borowy led off with a double and scored when Kitty Caissy doubled her home to cut the lead to 8-3. Kenzie Burns singled and Alyssa Debernardis walked to load the bases with one out.

"I'm pleased with our effort in the seventh inning," Quiricone said.

Shortstop Stacey DiLeo singled off the leg of Cammarota to make the game 8-4 and send the tying run to the place. But Kaitlyn McCartney popped out to shortstop and Vanderheyden flew out to left to end the game.

"It winded up being too little too late," Quiricone said. "The gap was too distant, trying to play catch up."

Warde plays again today when Brien McMahon comes up to Fairfield at 4 p.m. The Mustangs will travel to Stamford to take on undefeated Westhill on Monday at 4:30 p.m.
