STAMFORD, Conn. -- Stamford North completed its unbeaten run through the District 1 Little League tournament Tuesday with an 18-12 victory over Norwalk in the title game.

But Norwalk kept fighting back, and Stamford North clung to a 12-11 lead after four innings. It put the game away with a five-run fifth, highlighted by Connor Sullivan’s grand slam. Sullivan mashed three home runs in the contest.
