Girls Basketball Blog: 12/30

Local Girls Basketball didn’t stop for the holidays, with some area teams winning local holiday tournaments.  Here’s a look at how our area teams did this past week.

South Windsor

 The Bobcats may be the hottest team in our area with a record of 6-0.  South Windsor defeated Manchester on the road 53-37 and then went on to win their home holiday tournament with wins over Hillhouse (81-53) and NFA (61-49).  South Windsor looks to defend their undefeated record at home against Tolland Friday.

 

 Rockville

 Despite losing their first five games of the year, the Rams (1-5) were able to get their first victory with a 56-22 win at Cheney Tech.  Rockville visits Windsor on Friday.

 

 Tolland

 The Eagles were able to bring their record to an even 2-2 this past week with a win over Northwest Catholic in the Avon Holiday Tournament.  Tolland will play Glastonbury in the championship game of the tournament tonight.

 

 Ellington

 Ellington had a very disappointing week, and has struggled so far this season at 1-3.  The Knights lost both of their games by one point at Sheehan’s holiday tournament to Sheehan and Middletown.

 

 Windsor Locks

 The Raiders are another hot team in our coverage area.  Windsor Locks is sitting at 5-0 after wins this past week at Portland and at home against Hale Ray.  Locks hosts Coventry Friday night.

 

Enfield

 Enfield has been a surprise team so far this season and had another good week last week, winning the Enfield Rotary Tournament.  The Raiders (3-2) defeated rival Fermi 52-25 and East Granby 39-30 to win their home tournament.  Enfield takes on Coventry tonight.

 

Fermi

 The Falcons split last week in the Enfield Rotary Tournament.  Fermi lost to Enfield in the first round, but defeated Stafford 31-15 in the consolation game.  Fermi (2-5) will visit Wethersfield on Friday.

 

Suffield

 Suffield played only one game last week, but they will take the 59-49 win over Southington as their sole Christmas present.  The Wildcats are now 3-1 and will play Rocky Hill on the road tonight.

 

 Somers

 The Spartans’ struggles continued this past week with a 52-39 loss to visiting Classical Magnet.  Somers is 0-4, but visits East Windsor tonight looking for their first win.
