Class L Breakdown


Playing for a ECC title tonight, East Lyme draws the No. 1 seed and receive a bye.

And who may the Vikings face in the second round? None other than New London, the team they will face tonight for the conference title. FCIAC champions Fairfield Ludlowe gets the No. 8 seed.

A hot RHAM team, which won seven of its eight, is the No. 4 seed. It should face perennial power No. 13 Berlin the second round. Seeded No. 5, Notre Dame-West Haven gets No. 28 Wethersfield in the opening round. The Green Knights will possibly No. 21 Branford. The Hornets are looking to make another magical run like it did last season when it won the Class L title as the No. 14 seed.

Bethel is the No. 2 seed and will get a bye in the first round. No. 15 North Haven, which nearly upset Amity in the first round of the SCCs, will face No. 18 Avon in the first round.

Fitch, always a tough and seeded No. 10, should reach the quarterfinals. Wilton draws a bye at No. 3. The best first-round game in this field is between SCC foes No. 14 Sheehan and No. 19 East Haven. Law looks to have a favorable draw at No. 6.

Champion: For now (though it may change after a closer look),  Bethel appears to be the favorite. The Wildcats have a deep and talented pitching staff and a good draw.

Here is the Class L bracket.
