Bracketology 2/18

Even though the formula is rather easy to figure out with 16 teams making the tournament at each division, I thought I'd release, every Tuesday, the state tournament matchups for each division if the season ended today. This changes with each win, loss and tie but I will weekly post it for those inquiring minds. Enjoy!

16) St. Joseph @ 1) Darien
9) Hamden @ 8) Glastonbury

12) Northwest Catholic @ 5) New Canaan
13) Xavier @ 4) Ridgefield

11) West Haven @ 6) ND Fairfield
14) South Windsor @ 3) ND West Haven

10) Simsbury @ 7) East Haven
15) Greenwich @ 2) Fairfield Prep

Best Matchup- (9) Hamden vs. (8) Glastonbury- These two met last year in the first round with the host team reversed. Hamden is a hit or miss squad who's been missing a lot lately but can compete on any given night. Glastonbury is solid from the net on out. This one would be tight.

Upset Alert- (13) Xavier vs. (4) Ridgefield- Not saying Xavier would pull this upset but they certainly have shown they can compete with a Ridgefield. The Tigers have been playing very well of late so I'm not that confident in this call.

Yawner- (10) Simsbury vs. (7) East Haven- The battle to face Prep. East Haven has been successful but is rarely challenged. Simsbury seems to be trending downward as the season moves along. 

16) Conard @ 1) East Catholic
9) Cheshire @ 8) Amity

12) Suffield-Granby-WL @ 5) Trinity Catholic
13) Daniel Hand @ 4) New Milford

11) North Branford @ 6) Newington-Berlin
14) Fairfield Warde-Ludlowe @ 3) Branford

10) Milford Co-op @ 7) BCR
15) Fermi-Enfield @ 2) North Haven

Best Matchup- (9) Cheshire vs. (8) Amity- The 8/9 games are proving to be very exciting. These two SCC teams split their two matchups this year. A third, would be fantastic.

Upset Alert- (12) Suffield-Granby-WL vs. (5) Trinity Catholic- TC is hard to read and don't seem to be as strong as that team that started the season 8-0. Suffield doesn't play the same types of teams as most of the other D2's but are strong and qualified to pull this "upset."

Yawner- (15) Fermi-Enfield vs. (2) North Haven- I was tempted to not pick this one due to Fermi's huge win over East Catholic yesterday but the only way I see this one being close is if goalie Sam Roy stands on his head again. North Haven looks to strong for this one to be close.

17) Wilton
18) BBD
19) Watertown-Pomperaug
20) Guilford
21) Trumbull
22) Farmington Valley

16) St. Bernard-NFA-Bacon @ 1) Masuk
9) Tri-Town @ 8) Hall-Southington

12) Westhill @ 5) Staples-Weston-Shelton
13) Joel Barlow @ 4) Housatonic-NW-Wamogo

11) Shepaug-Litchfield-Nonnewaug @ 6) EO Smith-Tolland
14) Stamford @ 3) Sheehan

10) Lyman Hall-HK @ 7) NFI
15) Woodstock Academy @ 2) Newtown

Best Matchup- (12) Westhill vs. (5) Staples-Weston-Shelton- A pair of FCIAC clubs battle here. Both play a harder than normal schedule with Westhill taking their first meeting 2-1 earlier this month.

Upset Alert- See above

Yawner- (16) St. Bernard-NFA-Bacon vs. (1) Masuk- See the last couple week's posts.

17) Wethersfield
18) Norwalk-McMahon
19) Rocky Hill-Middletown-RHAM
20) Eastern CT Eagles
