Congrats to the winners. Tough loss for E.O. Smith; Wethersfield played tough, but with 6 or 7 fouls called against them in a minute and 45 seconds at the end of the 3rd quarter and three of them on one player in 45 seconds their defense was hamstrung. As a biased fan it was stunning to watch their lead evaporate, but even the local police commented afterward that flood of foul calls was amazing. Water under the bridge but I hope it doesn't happen to another team in the tournament. Abigail C. you are amazing, and good luck at the final.
