Girls Basketball Blog: 12/23

The Girls Basketball season has been in full swing for the last couple of weeks.  Let’s take a closer look at how our local teams have fared in 2013-2014 so far.

 

Windsor Locks

The Raiders have got off to a fast 3-0 start.  Locks, who is looking to make the tournament for the fifth year in a row, beat Stafford 46-27 in their opener at home and then followed that performance up with a 57-39 win over East Granby and a 53-26 win over Enfield, both on the road.

 

Suffield

The Wildcats are sitting at 2-1 after beating East Windsor and SMSA at home, and then losing to visiting Ellington 41-37 on 12/20.

 

East Windsor

After losing their opener on the road to Suffield 41-32, the Panthers bounced back with two wins against Somers and Prince Tech.  East Windsor is currently 2-2 after losing to Bolton 38-23 in their most recent attempt.

 

Enfield

The Raiders are 1-2, but their lone win showed that this Enfield team could surprise some people this year in the NCCC.  Enfield lost their opener at Bacon Academy 52-33, but then won a thriller on the road against Ellington by a score of 50-49.  Enfield fell to the very tough Windsor Locks team 53-26 on 12/20.

 

Fermi

Fermi started off with three straight losses to Platt, Tolland, and New Britain, but finally got their first win against Hartford Public on 12/20.  The 43-31 victory moved the Falcons record to 1-3.

The Spartans are 0-2, but fortunately have a full schedule still ahead of them.  Somers lost to Lyman Memorial 54-46 on the road and to East Windsor 37-28 in their home opener.

 

South Windsor

The Bobcats are sitting pretty at 3-0.  South Windsor, which returns all five starters from a team that reached the quarterfinals of the state tournament last year, Beat Hall 67-41, blew out Windsor 60-20, and handled Bristol Eastern easily with a 59-34 victory on 12/19.

Ellington

The Knights are 1-1 after bouncing back from a heartbreaking 50-49 loss in their home opener to Enfield.  Ellington, which expects to contend for the division title this season, went on the road to Suffield on 12/20 and came away with a 41-37 victory.

Rockville

The Rams expect to be more competitive than they were last season, but are yet to get a win in their first three games of this year’s campaign.  Rockville (0-3) has lost to Maloney, E.O. Smith, and Simsbury.

 

Glastonbury

The Tomahawks reached the semifinals of the state tournament last season and won the CCC tournament, but lost several key players from that team.  This season, under new head coach Kate Susat, Glastonbury is 1-1.  The Tomahawks won their opening game by a score of 51-40 on the road against Manchester, but lost their next contest, also on the road, 60-35 against Northwest Catholic.

 

Simsbury

With wins over East Hartford, Conard, and Rockville, the Trojans are looking good at 3-0.  Simsbury is looking for its first winning season in over eight years, and they look to be well on their way to doing so.
