He’s not the only one. Ned Griffen, from the Day of New London, has told me he’s been scratching his head trying to figure out all of our matchups. Simsbury vs. Pomperaug? Cheshire vs. Glastonbury? Xavier vs. Staples? Bloomfield vs. Hyde? …Taking a cursory glance, I’m inclined to agree with both of them.
Yeah, there’s maybe one or two slam dunks, but not the usual six, seven or eight games — which lends credence to the notion that there’s not one true No. 1 team out there.
Pomperaug? Should have its hands full with Simsbury in a crammed Class L field. Staples vs. Xavier looks like one of the best matchups, but what do the Wreckers have left after two grueling games in one week?
Cheshire-Glastonbury? Good offensive stars, short on big defensive stoppers, that’s a game that should produce plenty of fireworks and come down to the wire.
Bethel got any chance against New London? St. Paul have any chance vs. New Canaan? Vinal Tech/East Lyme? St. Joseph-Holy Cross?
Ansonia’s playing better, can they beat Northwest Catholic? Berlin-Avon? Notre Dame-West Haven at Conard?
Seeing as many of you are already casting your two cents (or, for some of you, a dollar’s worth) on the make believe playoff post, I figured we kick this week off to see what you think of our 2009 CIAC state playoffs.
Who will we be seeing Saturday in the finals?
