The defending champion Trumbull Eagles (19-1 overall, 15-1 FCIAC) were able to hold off #5 Stamford, 51-44, in their semifinal match Tuesday night at Fairfield Ludlowe High School.
The Eagles got out to a comfortable lead after the first half in the semifinals, but after Stamford made a second-half surge to get within three points it was the defense that helped Trumbull punch a ticket back to the conference title game. Senior captain Julie Keckler led the way on both sides of the floor as she finished with 11 points, but it was the freshmen Cassi Barbato who hit some clutch fourth quarter shots to finish with 11 points as well.
Head coach Steve Tobitsch looks to win back-to-back FCIAC championships with a loaded roster filled with talent and dominant team defense.
Frank Granito and Kevin Coleman will be on the call.
