WOODBRIDGE — The Newtown softball team has quickly transitioned into a dark horse in the Class LL tournament after knocking off No. 9 Amity 1-0 in eight innings in the second-round Wednesday.
Newtown advances to Friday’s quarterfinals, where it will host No. 14 Trumbull.
In what some may consider a shocking upset, 11th-seeded Newtown never questioned its ability to take down the sixth-seeded Spartans.
