Three locals play in state semifinal games tonight

Published November 12. 2013 4:00AM

Three of the six remaining local teams in the state tournament will play for spots in the state championship games tonight.

In field hockey, Eastern Connecticut Conference champion Stonington - a state finalist in 2012 - will try to earn a return trip to the Class S final tonight in a semifinal game against Thomaston at Guilford High School at 6 p.m.

Thomaston is the second seed and the Bears, fresh off a win over reigning champion Haddam-Killingworth in a rematch of last year's final, are No. 3.

In girls' soccer, a pair of ECC divisional champions also have semifinal games - Medium Division winner Waterford in Class M and Small Division champion St. Bernard in Class S. The Lancers play Tolland at Middletown High and the Saints take on Old Saybrook at Montville High. Both games will start at 6:30 p.m.

Tolland is seeded second and Waterford third in Class M while the Saints are the No. 2 seed in Class S and Old Saybrook is seeded 11th.

Three other locals will play semifinals games on Wednesday and Thursday.

Old Lyme plays Cromwell in the Class S boys' soccer semis on Wednesday at Guilford (6:30 p.m.), Waterford plays Woodland in the Class M volleyball semis on Wednesday at Glastonbury (7 p.m.) and Ledyard plays Farmington in the Class L volleyball semis Thursday at New Britain (5 p.m.).
