The top-seeded St. Joseph softball team saw its hopes of completing its season with a state championship dashed 1-0 by fifth-seeded Rocky Hill in the Class M semifinals at DeLuca Field in Stratford on Monday night.
“To fall short, it’s not a pleasant feeling,” Cadet coach Jeff Babineau said after his club finished 24-2. “It’s tough on the kids. They work very hard, give them a lot of credit, they didn’t give up tonight. They haven’t given up all year.”
