Playoff race

The SCC division races are virtually over with. Career (Oronoque), Hillhouse (Hammonasset) and Cheshire (Housatonic) have already clinched. Fairfield Prep is one win away from tying for the Quinnipiac Division title. Xavier is the only team still with a shot after splitting with Prep during the regular season.

Amazingly, 18 teams still have a chance to qualify for both the state and SCC tournaments. That won't turn out to be the case in the end but it should still make for an interesting February in the SCC.
