The HAN Network will be at Darien High School as the Blue Wave host the Shelton Gaels when the second round of the CIAC Class LL girls soccer tournament gets under way Thursday, Nov. 9, at 2 p.m.
The Blue Wave, out of the FCIAC, entered the state tournament as the eighth seed with an 11-2-3 regular season record. The Blue Wave defeated 25th-seeded Danbury in the first round, 2-0. Darien previously qualified for the FCIAC tournament as the fifth seed, but fell in the quarterfinals 1-0 to the fourth-seeded Ridgefield Tigers.
Blue Wave goalkeeper Christine Fiore, one of the top keepers in the FCIAC this season, will work to keep the Shelton Gaels from scoring. Look for captain Katie Ramsey to create scoring opportunities for her team.
The Shelton Gaels, who play in the SCC, also finished their regular season with an 11-3-2 record, and lost to Hand in the conference semifinals 3-2 in overtime. In their first round matchup in the states, the Gaels rebounded nicely with an impressive 3-0 victory over 24th-seeded South Windsor.
Shelton starting goalkeeper Courtney Litts looks to shut down the Blue Wave attack along with the talented back four that has shined all season long.
Frank Granito and Kevin Coleman will be on the call.
