Seeding holds to form

The higher seeds all advanced into Friday's quarterfinals in the Class L and S divisions except for one: No. 25 Stratford, winning at No. 9 Avon 57-52. Now the Red Devils, the champion in this class two years ago, gets to travel to West Hartford to face top-seeded Northwest Catholic.
Best of luck will need it against Kuran Iverson.
Branford beat Berlin 31-29...yes advance to play at Farmington in the quarterfinals. The only other SCC team left in Class L is Career, which overcame an 18-point deficit - in less than a quarter - to beat fellow New Haven school Wilbur Cross 53-48. It was the third time Career had beaten Cross this season,
As awesome as Cross played in the second quarter - holding the state's fifth-ranked team to three points - Career looked even better in the third quarter with a 20-2 run to tie the game. Then it was a high-drama fourth quarter with Career's Treyvon Moore having to block a three-point shot in order make sure Career moved on.
Now the Panthers get Trinity Catholic in a rematch of last year's Class M final, won by Trinity. The Crusaders feature Schradac Casimir, Jason Boswell and 7-1 center Pascal Chukwu, who was a difference maker as a freshman in last year's final. This game is a tossup.

All the higher seeds won convincingly in Class S except Coginchaug, which needed a 3-point play with 0.9 seconds left to beat Shoreline Conference rival Haddam-Killingworth 45-44. Coginchaug now gets Khalil Dukes and Capital Prep in Hartford.
