Boys' Hockey: CIAC D-I nearly true to form
The first round of the CIAC Division I boys' hockey tournament is in the books and except for one upset the games went true to form with the higher seeds winning today (Wednesday).
The only upset of the day, actually a mild upset, happened at the Bennett Rink with No. 9 Glastonbury defeating No. 8 Notre Dame-West Haven 3-2 in overtime.
No. 2 seed Fairfield Prep had a near scare, needing overtime to win 2-1 over pesky No. 15 Darien. Coach Larry Vieira of Milford always has his teams ready for the postseason and the Blue Wave nearly pulled off the upset.
No. 1 seed New Canaan def. No. 16 Greenwich 5-1 to remain unbeaten at 24-0.
My pre-tournament picks for the final four are still alive with Prep, Xavier, New Canaan and St. Joseph all moving on to the quarterfinals. New Canaan and St. Joseph seem destined to meet for a fourth time this season in the semifinals.
