Girls Basketball Blog: 1/13

Two weeks into January and three area Girls Basketball teams have already qualified for the state tournament: Simsbury, Windsor Locks, and our only undefeated, South Windsor.  This week will be the halfway point of the season, and many teams are still in post-season contention.

 

South Windsor

The Bobcats have reached the state tournament already without losing a game.  South Windsor went on the road to beat a tough Weaver team by a point to preserve their undefeated streak, and then traveled again to Wethersfield where they improved to 8-0 and qualified for state tournament action.  The Bobcats will defend their record tonight when they host East Catholic.

 

Simsbury

At 8-1, the Trojans have qualified for the state tournament.  Simsbury went on the road twice last week, defeating Hall 51-50, and New Britain 57-49.  The Trojans play Northwest Catholic tonight at home.

 

Windsor Locks

The Raiders started their season 8-0 with home wins over SMSA and Somers last week and qualified for the state tournament without recording a loss.  Locks then fell in their ninth game of the year on the road against Canton by a score of 43-37.  The 8-1 Raiders visit Suffield tomorrow.

 

Farmington

The Indians are still going strong at 7-1.  Farmington beat Tolland 52-46 in Tolland and Southington 65-35 at home to give them their seventh straight victory.  Farmington will try to qualify for the state tournament tonight when they visit Conard.

 

Avon

The Falcons have turned their season around after a slow start, and with three wins last week are now 7-2.  Avon beat NCCC opponents Ellington, East Granby, and Somers in blowouts, and will try to qualify for the state tournament tomorrow night in Stafford.

 

Canton

Two wins in two games at home against Coventry and a previously undefeated Windsor Locks team improved the Warriors record to 5-2.  Canton travels to East Windsor tomorrow night.

 

Enfield

The Raiders turned it on last week for two wins over visiting Somers 28-17 and Stafford 42-13.  Enfield is now 6-3 and will travel to Granby tomorrow night.

 

East Windsor

The Panthers played three road games last week, but took home victories in two of them to go to 6-3.  East Windsor defeated Stafford and Classical Magnet before losing to the Ellington Knights.  The Panthers are back home tomorrow night against Canton.

 

Suffield

The Wildcats fell to 4-4 with losses to Granby 52-42 and RHAM 65-51 last week.  Suffield hosts an 8-1 Windsor Locks team Tuesday.

 

Fermi

Fermi’s slide continued with losses to Bloomfield on the road and Rocky Hill at home.  The Falcons try their luck again tonight as they visit E.O. Smith.

 

Somers

The only area team yet to get a win in 2013-2014 so far is the Somers Spartans.  Somers lost three games last week against Enfield, Windsor Locks, and Avon to fall to 0-8.  The Spartans host East Granby Tuesday night.

 

Glastonbury

The Tomahawks lost at home to East Catholic 41-39 and defeated East Hartford 46-42 on the road last week to move their record to 3-5.  Tomorrow night, Glastonbury hosts a very tough Weaver team.

 

Tolland

The Eagles were busy last week playing three games at home.  Tolland knocked off Rockville 51-40, lost to Farmington 52-46, and defeated Bloomfield 65-46.  The 5-3 Eagles go to Rocky Hill tomorrow night.

 

Ellington

After a 75-39 loss on the road to Avon, the Knights were sitting at 1-4 to start the season.  Ellington picked up their second win this week, however, with a home victory over East Windsor.  The 2-4 Knights travel to SMSA tonight.

 

Rockville

Losses to Tolland and RHAM last week dropped the Rams to 1-8.  Rockville will have an opportunity to get their second win tomorrow night when they host Hartford Public.
