Staff Reports

Kylee Holderied struck out 15 and allowed just one hit in six innings, helping the Fairfield 9/10 Little League softball team stave off elimination with a 5-0 win over Orange in the Section 1 tournament in Wallingford.

Sarah Szuchman was 2-for-3, and Emma Romeo was 1-for-2 with a first-inning RBI single.

After dropping its sectional opener to Orange, Fairfield has won three straight losers' bracket games. Fairfield will play Seymour at 6 p.m. in Tuesday's sectional final but must beat Seymour twice to claim a berth in the state finals series.

Should Fairfield beat Seymour Tuesday, the teams will meet again Wednesday. All games are at Pragmanne Park in Wallingford.
