The Westport 12-year-old Little League All Stars today defeated Coginchaug of Durham 8-2 in the first game of the best-two-of-three state championship series in Southington.
The come-from-behind victory in which Coginchaug scored two first inning unearned runs set up Westport for a possible sweep Sunday to win its first state title and determine Connecticut’s representative in the New England Regionals.
Westport came roaring back after the rough first inning, scoring five runs in the fourth inning, and three more in the fifth.
The Sunday game is at 3 p.m. If Coginchaug wins Sunday, the championship will be decided at 6:30 p.m. on Monday.
