Hopes of a repeat fairytale ride to the Little League World Series for Westport ended today as the Westport U12 team went down to defeat to Fairfield American 8-3 at Unity Park in Trumbull.
It was a must win for Westport to survive to play Fairfield American again on Sunday, but it was not to be.
The Westport team, hoping to emulate the success of last year’s team, was down 3-1 in the fifth when Adam Petro homered over the centerfield fence with a man on to even the score.
But Fairfield came back in the sixth with a three-run homer by Jamie Flink and added on with a two-run homer by Vince Camera to clinch the victory.
