Three cheers for the area teams

Eight area teams won on the opening night of the state tournament.
Hand won at the buzzer over RHAM in Hebron. Now the Tigers get top-seeded Northwest Catholic.
No. 25 Stratford won at No. 8 Middletown rather easily, 66-57. That's two CCC teams down. Stratford plays at Avon next.
No. 20 North Haven won at No. 13 Bristol Eastern 55-53. The Indians now travel to Farmington on Wednesday. The fourth-seeded Indians gave the CCC a win, eliminating Lyman Hall 54-43.
No. 2 Career and No. 5 Branford held serve at home over Bristol Central (another CCC school) and Woodstock Academy, respectively. Branford will host - you guessed it - a CCC foe, Berlin, in the second round Wednesday while Career will have to face Wilbur Cross a third time at the Floyd Little Athletic Center at 6. Cross, The No. 15 seed, won at Bunnell 83-76 in a wild game that Cross led the entire way. Career won both regular-season matchups.

In Class S, congratulations to Amistad Academy for winning its first state tournament game, eliminating No. 19 Housatonic Regional 63-53. Now No. 14 Amistad plays at No. 3 Capital Prep on Wednesday.
No. 11 Haddam-Killingworth beat No. 22 East Windsor 64-37 and gets to face Coginchaug for a third time. The game will be Wednesday in Durham.
