Championship Chase

Barrington Little League falls to New Hampshire in regional semis

East Bay

BRISTOL, Conn. (WPRI) — Despite a late-inning surge, Barrington Little League lost Thursday to Goffstown, N.H. by a score of 2-1 in the winner’s bracket semifinal of the New England regional tournament.

The Rhode Island representatives rallied to cut the lead in half in the bottom of the 6th but ultimately came up short.

Barrington still needs two wins to earn a spot in the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Penn. They’ll take on the Madison, Conn. team at 1 p.m. Friday, and the winner will go on to face New Hampshire in the finals.

The team defeated Vermont in extra innings on Monday.

It’s the first time Barrington has represented Rhode Island as state champions since 1975. The team is trying to become the fifth Rhode Island team in the last six years to advance to Williamsport for the Little League World Series, joining Cumberland (2014), Cranston West (2015), Warwick North (2016) and Coventry (2018).
