Instead, l.ymau Hall will play in the championship game Saturday at Haybeslos Field. The Trojanelles scored ten runs in Ihe second inning as they defeated tlieGarnclles. 13-7, in semi-linal round action. The N'augatuck girls now stand with a very fine 164 record with a playoff game against Torrington eilhcr tomorrow or neKt Tuesday to decide the NVL Champion. Naugatuck lost to a very good Hlh ranked Lyman Hall team. The Trojancltes coin- milted no errors and shortstop Hope Wells and Ihird baseman Roberta tt'schlflbausen stopped hard hit grounders by the Garnettes on several occasions to help them sew up the victwy. In the fateful second inning, the first ten loiters L.yman Hall sent to Ihe plate scored runs withthebig blow being a three run triple ly Wacbldhausen. Colecn Canning and Robin Vizina sirglcd sharply to open the inning Canning scored the first run when stealing third as catcher Donna DiMinio's throw- sailed on third baseman Debbie Koonz and struck her in the [ace. Koonz was not hurl loo hadly on Ihe play and slaved in Ihe game. N'augy starlir« pitcher l.ori Malos Ihen lost her control as she walked Lesley Knight, Lisa Smith, and Marcia Osnorne to force in the second run. A single lo cenler by Wells Ij-oughl in Vezina and KnigM scored on another walk lo Donna Carini. Naugy coach Denise Swan decided to bring Donna Cipriano in lo pitch, but on Ihe second pitch Wachlelhausen drilled the tali deep lo left field plating runs number five, six and seven. Bonnie llornich dropped a single inlocenler to rjale vVachleUiausen with run number eight. Canning, balling for the second lime in the inning will) none out, singled lo center and Vezina walked to reload the bases. Homich scored on a groundoul, second lo first, and Canning scored the tenth run on an infield single by Smith, A force oul al second and a groundoul short to first got Naugy oul of Ihe inning, but the damage, was already done. Hall scored Iheir final Ihree runs in tbe tliird inning with the help of a questionable call hy the base umpire. Carini drew a walk to lead off Ihe inning and after two pop outs, Canning popped a ball up in short left field. MnUis, now playing shortstop, started tack for Ihe ball but bumped Carini who had gone to second on a passed ball. Lori recovered and looked up for the ball, hut all she saw was Ihe sun and (he hall fell about len feet away from her. The runner could have been called oul for interference, hut the umpire felt that Ihe bump wasn't lhat significant and all hands were safe. Vezina then delivered a long home run to left-center to bring in the final two runs and make the score 13-0. Naugy, meanwhile, was having Iheir troubles with Osborne. The freshman righthander retired the first nine batters she faced until DiMuzio reached on an infield single to lead off the fourth. The play seemed to ignite a spark in Naugy as Ihey erupted for five rurs of Iheir own, sending all nine hitters to Ihe plate. Pam Jolmson drew a walk and afler a pop out and wild pilch, Mary Bachinsky plated the first run with a grounder to third. The throw came home and Difituzio beal it standing up and all runners were safe. Johnson scored the second r un on a double steal, and Koonz tripled Bachinsky in lo make Ihe score 13-3. A walk to Donna Cipriano followed by a ground oul. short to first by Sharon Legenza, accounled for run number four, and Koonz scored on a wild rilch. Barters Fredericks, who had walked, stole second, and took Ihird on Ihe wild pilch was left on third as Wells made a good play on a grouixler by Nancy Vielleux for Ihe final out. Wilhoneoul in Ihe fifth, Johnson and Mates walked and Bachinsky contributed a run scoring single lo make il 13-6, Matos look Ihird on a long fly oul lo center by Koonz, and Bacliinsky stole second. Cipriano popped out to second, with Carini making the catch alter balding Ihe sun. Naugy scored their final run, again after the teadoff batter was out, in the sixth, Fredericks and Vielleux drew walks before DiMuziodrove home Fredericks withasingle tocenter. Vielleux was cut down al third ona good relay from center, and DiMuzio was sfranded on third when Johnson grounded out hard to Wachteihausen, Naugy's last chance rally in Ihe seventh never really came about. Matos and Bachinsky led off wilhcleansingles, but when Mary's hit was bottled in lellfietd Malos tried for third. Smilh made a good recovery and a perfect throw for Ihe firsl oul, and Bachinsky had to dive back into first to avoid being doubled up on the play. Bachinsky stayed on Ihe ground in pain after the play and had to be removed from the field by stretcher and was taken to Milford Hospilal were x-rays were taken. It was feared that Mary had dislocated her hip, but the x-rays showed it was only a bad bruise and the Naugatuck freshman was recovering at home last right. A walk lo Koonz put runners on first and second, but a fly to center by Cipriano, and a force at third on another well hit ball by Legenza ended the threat.
