Amity defeated Branford 9-5 yesterday in a battle of New Haven Register Top Ten teams. The Spartans jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Ted Ballou and Brian Speer led the first-inning attack with a pair of 2RBI base hits.
Branford nipped away at the lead with runs in the 3rd and 4th inning. In the third they had the bases loaded twice and came away with just a run, on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Marc Canzanella. In the 4th they loaded up the bags again and came away with a single run on bases loaded fielders-choice.
The key to the Amity win was their defense the Spartans turned four double-plays.
