Cheering on the Wreckers

WestportNow.com Image
Staples supporters cheer for their team following the Wrecker 1-0 loss to Wilton tonight in the FCIAC baseball final at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport.  Hours earlier, Staples defeated Trinity Catholic 8-2 in the twice-postponed semifinal. Staples Coach Jack McFarland was not pleased with having to win two games in one day to gain the championship. “I’ve been around long enough to know that I’ve never seen a team have to win twice in the same day to win an FCIAC championship and we almost pulled it off,” he said. “I’m proud of my kids. One team had to win two games, one team had to win one. We were asked to do a lot today to win a championship. That’s my only comment about the way things turned out.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) WestportNow.com photo
