With tons of intriguing holiday tournaments and non-conference matchups, next week will be a good indicator as to where teams stand on the state level. Here’s a look at eight of the most important games on next week’s slate.

Manchester Holiday Tournament championship, Thursday, 7:30 p.m.: Assuming the Indians get by NFA and Newtown beats New Britain, Manchester will square off against the Nighthawks in a matchup of two Class LL contenders.

Mercy Classic Championship, Thursday, 7:30 p.m.: If the Tigers knock off Wilbur Cross and Lauralton Hall can beat East Catholic, this will be another interesting game between Class LL powerhouses.

Career at Hillhouse at the Floyd Little Athletic Center, Thursday, 5 p.m.: You can make the argument that both these teams can win the Class LL tournament this year. Let’s see who has the upper hand.

RHAM at Stamford, Wednesday, 5 p.m.: Let’s see which team is for real. Both undefeated, Sarah Veilleux and the Sachems will face this FCIAC team that’s off to a sizzling start.

Thomaston at Coginchaug, Tuesday, 7:30 p.m.: Can the Golden Bears handle the uptempo Blue Devils in a battle of these Class S powers.

Kolbe Cathedral at Windsor, Thursday, 3:30 p.m.: The Cougars could use a win here to prove they are still a perennial power.

Glastonbury vs. Lyman Hall at Hand, Tuesday, 5 p.m.: Still looking for its first win, a victory over Glastonbury would be huge for Lyman Hall.

Northwest Catholic at Avon, Tuesday, 7:45 p.m.: Playing in the NCCC, a win over the Indians would prove that Avon in legit.
