Newington Responds

It didn’t take long for Newington to turn the page after New Britain blanked the Indians 4-0 Tuesday.

Sparked by a six-run seventh inning, Newington answered back with a 7-1 win Wednesday over previously undefeated Northwest Catholic.

“Coming off that loss, our guys were really focused,” Newington coach Eric Frank said. “We hung in there and scored six in the seventh to pull out the win.”

Despite being a youth-laden group — just one senior on the team — No. 9 Newington (11-2 entering Monday) looks to be a Class LL contender this year. It will certainly be battle tested, after playing among teams like Southington, Northwest Catholic, New Britain and Simsbury in a loaded Central Connecticut Conference West Division.

Junior Tyler Barrett, who had a two-run single during Wednesday’s rally, is hitting .440 with 17 RBIs and three home runs. On the mound, junior right-hander Cole Bryant is 6-1 with a 1.06 ERA. He went 7-0 last year as a sophomore.
