NOTE: Darien was awarded a forfeit victory over Bronson Heights when Bronson Heights decided to play four players who had been declared ineligible by tournament officials following their quarterfinal round victory over Ansonia East. Tournament officials would not permit the four players to enter the game, so Bronson Heights forfeit the game. The four players did not live within the official boundaries of the Bronson Heights league. Darien had led the semifinal round game 7-0 after 2-1/2 innings of play prior to the forfeit being awarded.
