Nielsen’s Florist won the DLL Softball Minors Championship game over Darien Family Dental, recently.
It was a defensive battle with DFD’s pitchers Katherine Lindell, Katelyn Erdlin and Caera Cope combining to strike out 12 and allow four hits.
Rachele Romano and Reagan Adiletta of Nielsen’s combined for 15 strikeouts over the six innings.
An RBI single by Claire Kissko in the first inning and a two run double in the third inning by Adiletta was enough to seal the game.
This was a culmination of a great season for the Nielsen’s squad that went 13-1 against teams from Darien, Rowayton and New Canaan.
The girls were coached by Darcy Adiletta and Sondra Romano and helped by student coaches Caroline Krueger and Stephanie Gentile from FCIAC Champion Darien High.
Nielsen’s was represented by Reagan Adiletta, Rachele Romano, Brooke Bodick, Charlotte Krueger, Lucy Best, Allie Schuck, Samantha Riley, Sophie Bell, Isabelle Parr, Callie McCloskey and Claire Kissko.
