Championship Game (see photos)
West Hartford 3, Tolland 2. Fifth-seeded West Hartford and #2 seed Tolland squared off in the hot, humid finale to the weekend tournament. Rebecca Fuller started for Tolland and Abby Johnson pitched for West Hartford. Tolland took an early lead until an RBI single by Theo Dworak in the third inning knotted the score. Michele Ribeiro doubled down the left field line in the sixth inning and scored what proved to be the deciding run. This close game was highlighted by suberb defensive plays by both teams.
Coached by Tom Dworak, the West Hartford roster also included Marissa Boccaccio, Sheri Brick, Lauren Clarke, Heather Corrigan, Kelly McCormick, Allie Mainelli, Jessica Markowitz, Kelly Mascolo, Julie Monahan, Alix Raymond, Liz Ross, Maya Shoham, Erica Stankoski and Allison Tracey.

Congratulations Tolland - NCGSL 2002 U-16 Tournament Runners-up.
