The Lead

After a 1-4 start, the Ellington Knights have won seven straight games to improve to 8-4.  Ellington played three home games last week defeating Canton 61-48, Housatonic 53-33, and Somers 54-39.  Friday’s victory over the Spartans was extra special as senior Karlee Alves scored her 1,000th career point in the victory, which also clinched a state tournament berth for Ellington.  The Knights play Stafford Tuesday.

 

The Suffield Wildcats defeated Enfield last week 47-27 to go to 8-4 on the year and reserve their spot in the state tournament.  Suffield will try to make it five straight wins when they travel to Coventry this evening.

 

A 74-29 home victory over Fermi earned the Tolland Eagles their place in the state tournament.  Tolland (8-5) also lost to E.O. Smith at home last week and hosts Glastonbury tonight.

 

After losing nine straight games to start the season, the Somers Spartans finally got their first win last week over arch nemesis Stafford by a score of 43-21 on the road.  Somers, who lost to Ellington last week to fall to 1-10 on the year, will invite Canton to play tonight.

 

Avon has won nine straight games to improve to 11-2.  The Falcons beat SMSA 59-26 in Hartford and Bolton 56-31 at home.  Tuesday night the Falcons will travel to Windsor Locks.

 

And finally, our only unbeaten team, the South Windsor Bobcats, won two games last week to improve to an impressive 13-0.  The Bobcats beat Windsor 76-27 on the road and crushed East Hartford 74-16 at home.  South Windsor travels to RHAM tonight.
