Boys' hockey: Fate of SCC tournament on hold

Earlier this week it was reported by this reporter that boys' hockey coaches in the Southern Connecticut Conference two weeks ago voted unanimously to discontinue the SCC Division II tournament.
Athletic directors of the SCC originally were going to decide the ultimate fate of the SCC Division II tournament at a meeting on Wednesday. However, because many SCC athletic directors can't make that meeting due to their teams playing in the CIAC state tournaments (D-I, D-II and D-III), they have decided to meet in April after the season ends to discuss the tournament's fate.
"It makes sense to put the decision on hold because you want all the ADs to be available," SCC commissioner Al Carbone said. "I'm glad the decision will wait until then because I also want to have one or two coaches at the meeting to give their reasons for discontinuing the tournament."
There is no SCC Division I tournament.
The SCC Division II coaches voted to discontinue the event to avoid playing league teams three or even four times a season. They also were concerned with playing the semifinals and finals on back-to-back days and wanted to have a break before the CIAC state tournaments.
No. 3 Hand defeated No. 1 Guilford 3-1 today (Saturday) in what potentially could be the final SCC Division II championship game.
