COURT VISION: SCC quarterfinal wrap-up

WALLINGFORD -- Top-seeded Career won its Southern Connecticut Conference quarterfinal game against No. 8 Amity, but the Panthers also may have lost a big piece of their team for an extended period.
2012 New Haven Register All State member, junior forward Tanaya Atkinson, got pushed from behind,  bumped her head on an Amity players knee pad and was transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital with an apparent concussion midway through the fourth.
Before departing, the forward scored a game-high 21 points to lead the Panthers, the No. 2 team in the New Haven Register Top 10 poll, to a 64-45 victory at Sheehan.
"I'm not a doctor, but at this point I would believe its a concussion," Career coach Steve Bethke said.
No. 6 Sacred Heart Academy 58, No. 3 Hand 47: The Pacers used a 23-13 third quarter spurt and a game-high 16 points from junior point guard Shyla Osmond to knock out the Tigers.
Micaela Montini added 14 for Sacred Heart Academy, which improved to 14-7. 
Meanwhile, Hand fell to 13-8. Senior guard Maggie Fitzgerald had a team-high seven points.

No. 2 Mercy 78, No. 7 Lyman Hall 48: Senior guard Jordyn Nappi drained five of the Tigers' eight 3-pointers and finished with 21 points and senior Maria Weselyj added a game-high 22 points as Mercy eliminated Lyman Hall.
"Jordyn had a little mini slump, so it was good to see her have a game like that and make some shots," Mercy coach Tim Kohs said. 
The Tigers, who are ranked No. 4 in the New Haven Register Top 10 poll,  improved to 20-1. 
Krista Peterson scored 17 to lead Lyman Hall and nailed three triples as the Trojans hit seven 3-pointers. The Trojans are 12-9.

No. 4 Foran 50, No. 5 Guilford 41: Teneya McLaughlin scored a game-high 21 points and the Lions advanced to the the SCC semifinals for the first time in school history.
"We always tell the girls, you get out of it what you put into it," Foran coach Scott Nails said. 
Kyra Backetter added 11 points off the bench for Foran, which improved to 13-8.
"She came in and got a lot of hustle points," Nails said. 
Ali Hart and Carly Puchini both had nine for the Indians, who fell to 13-8.
