Bristol, Conn.? Here we come.
That’s the byword for the Williston Little League All-Stars after they smashed past Bennington Tuesday in a four-inning 27-0 championship triumph at Burlington’s Shifilliti Field.
The victory was a continuation of the Willistonians’ muscular explosions as they crushed four home runs including a grand slam and three-run jack by Griffin McDermott, who had four hits and eight runs batted in.
Joining McDermott in the slam fest were Aiden Johnson with a grand slam dinger and three other safeties and Ben Herskowitz, who rapped three hits including a solo four-bagger.
Joining the bopping party were Baker Angstman (four hits), Jonah Roberts (three hits) and Carl Layman (two hits, three RBIs).
Starting pitcher Storm Rushford worked the four-inning route and allowed but two hits in gaining the shutout.
In reaching the pinnacle of Vermont’s Little league world, coach Paul Angstman’s combine bumped off defending champion South Burlington in district play and upon reaching the state tournament, rattled off 45 runs in three winning efforts.
The Connecticut invasion takes place Aug. 1 with the Nutmeg State’s champions the initial test. The regional games are televised on the New England Sports Network (NESN).

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
