In Greenwich’s Co-Ed Softball Championship, Wiegand Landscaping rallied to score three times in the bottom of the seventh to take the Town Co-Ed Softball Title over Highland Sewer & Drain 11-10.
In what turned out to be an exciting contest, the winners were forced to play from behind most of the game against an opportunistic Highland squad. Indeed, Highland held a 6-1 lead after exploding for five runs in the third frame. They also added runs in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings. The Landscapers played with poise as well, pushing across at least one run in every inning but the first. The three runs in their last turn at bat came on four straight hits including a key triple by Manager Frank Weidman.
Joey D’Andrea led Wiegand with three-for-three and drove in two runs. Mike Mohrin contributed three hits and two RBIs. Mary-Leigh Weidmann also wielded a hot bat with three clutch singles. Still, it was a true team effort for the champions as everyone in the line-up hit safely. Bobby Caldwell, Erica Fox, Maggie Wallace and Gia Gianchetta provided two hits apiece. John Byrnes, Frank Wiedman and Matt Wallace all picked up a base hit.
Will Micik and Victoria Leontios spearheaded the Highland attack. Will Micik was three-for-three, two runs scored and two runs batted in. Victoria Leontios also had three hits and scored a run. Manager Steve Bozzuto had a major impact as well, with two hits, two walks and three runs scored. Brittany Rodriguez, Rashe Campbell and John Pitassi all picked up base hits for Highland, with Pitassi also driving in two runs.
Joey D’Andrea was the winning pitcher in relief for Wiegand. The Lancsapers went through the double elimination tournament undefeated. It was also a strong run for the Highland team, which knocked off the top seed, Elevated in earlier play.
