This is a rematch of last seasons FCIAC girls basketball championship game. Trumbull defeated Stamford 44-35 to claim its first title since 2011.
The Stamford Black Knights (14-6 overall, 12-4 FCIAC) upset #4 Norwalk 65-57 in their quarterfinal game on Saturday.
The Black Knights had three starters finish in double figures. The big story was the 30 point performance by the senior captain Brooke Kelly which included 11 free throws and three 3-pointers. Senior captain Andrea O’Connor had 11 points, and sophomore point guard Megan Landsiedel had 15 points. After reaching the championship game the last two seasons head coach Diane Burns has done a terrific job getting her program back to the conference semifinals considering they lost senior captain Alexa Kellner, who tore her ACL in the beginning of the season.
The Trumbull Eagles (19-1 overall, 15-1 FCIAC) were able to hold off #8 Darien 54-46 in their quarterfinal match Saturday afternoon.
The Eagles were led by senior captains Julie Keckler who had a team high 17 points, including four three-pointers, and Aisling Maguire, who had eight points to help the Eagles advance to the semifinals. Trumbull finished the game with eight three-pointers from four players.
Despite losing key starters from last year’s championship team, head coach Steve Tobitsch has retooled his roster and has gotten great minutes out of his young talent. Freshmen Cassi Barbato and Allison Palmeiri have provided great minutes and have shown the future will continue to be bright at Trumbull High.
Frank Granito and Kevin Coleman will be on the call.
