Things return to normal

We almost had a second straight night of rash upsets, this time in Class L...

Wilby led New London in the third quarter. Sheehan led Kennedy in the fourth quarter. Lyman Hall and Maloney were forced to go to overtime. But all four teams won.
Lyman Hall outlasted Branford and now faces Berlin in what should be good quarterfinal on Monday in Wallingford. The other game in the top portion of the bracket will feature Northwest Catholic against Bassick, the team no one wants to see. Bassick buried EO Smith Thursday so Northwest needs to be concerned. Very concerned.

Maloney got past East Lyme in OT and now will face Kennedy, which eliminated a very determined Sheehan team. New London only beat Wilby three and now gets Hand, which beat East Catholic. Hand is the lowest remaining seed (22nd) in the L tournament, but is the second-to-last team to beat New London back in the 2009 L tournament.

In Class S, all four of the top seeds, No. 1 Valley Regional, No. 2 Capital Prep, No. 3 Classical Magnet and No. 4 St. Paul, all moved into the quarterfinals. No. 12 Coginchaug also won, beating No. 5 Windsor Locks on the road and now gets St. Paul. Valley hosts Kolbe Cathedral, a dangerous game for the Warriors.
