    LI Lax are both WI and WM at full strength? If so think this game will be closer than the last one but with the same winner.

    Headline: Somers still alive in playoffs.

    Somers advances with a 10-3 win over Old Saybrook. No elephants here, this Somers is in Connecticut and is better known for housing the Nutmeg State’s Death Row. They advance to a Class S quarterfinal matchup with St. Joseph’s of Trumbull on Saturday. All other higher seeds in Class S advanced.

    In Class M, #11 Daniel Hand upset #6 East Lyme, last year’s semifinalist, 14-13. Hand gets a quarterfinal visit to New Canaan on Saturday. #9 Avon defeated #8 Brookfield 9-8 in OT. All other higher seeds advanced. Last year’s finalists, Darien and Wilton, meet in a quarterfinal at Darien at 3pm on Saturday.

    In Large school action, Greenwich continues its white-hot end of season by beating Ridgefield 11-6 at Tiger Hollow. The #12 Cardinals get #4 Fairfield Prep @ Prep on Saturday at 3pm. #9 Simsbury bested #8 Trumbull handily, 10-5 for the other win by a lower seed. Simsbury gets #1 Staples on Saturday, back on the winning track via a 12-0 win over qualifier Newington.

    Congrats WI! Bring home another state title!

    WI has been unstoppable since dropping the opener to Sach North.
