SCC out of CIAC soccer tournaments

For the third straight year, the Southern Connecticut Conference will not have a state soccer champion.
The Guilford boys was the last team to fall, 4-2 to New Milford in the Class LL semifinals Tuesday night. No other boys' or girls' team from the league even got past the quarterfinals. The only area team left is Bunnell, which plays New Canaan today in the Class L semifinals at 7:30 p.m. at Norwalk High.
In field hockey, the SCC is out of that tournament, too. Hand fell to top-seeded Darien 3-1 in the Class M semifinals. There are no area field hockey teams left as both North Branford and Haddam-Killingworth lost in the Class S semifinals.
The SCC is pinning its hopes to three girls' volleyball teams: Foran in Class L, Law and Sacred Heart Academy in Class M. Foran is a heavy, heavy underdog against perennial state champion Darien on Thursday. But Sacred Heart and Law could both get through to meet one another on Saturday at Berlin High.
Cheshire tried to dethrone Greenwich later today in the Class LL swim championships. If not, the Rams get another shot at Saturday's State Open.
