SCC tournament predictions
No. 2 Branford vs. No. 7 Notre Dame-West Haven at West Haven High, 4 p.m.: The Green Knights have lost two extra-games to the Hornets this season. But that was without ace Gary Flowers on the mound. He makes a difference.
Pick: Notre Dame-West Haven
No. 3 Fairfield Prep vs. No. 6 Sheehan at West Haven High, 7 p.m.: The Titans always succeed in the postseason and they have beaten Jesuits top pitcher Anthony Redamonti twice already.
No. 4 West Haven vs. No. 5 Cheshire at Quigley Stadium, 4 p.m.: Probably the toughest game to predict in the opening round. Cheshire has the most talent in the SCC and it's likely Max Slade will be on the mound. But can't go against Eric Stone and a team coached by Mike Anquillare.
Pick: West Haven
No. 1 Amity vs. No. 8 Foran at Quigley Stadium, 7 p.m.: E.J. Ashworth helps the Spartans bounce back after a two-game skid.
Semifinals, Thursday at Yale Field, 4 and 7 p.m.
No. 7 Notre Dame-West Haven vs. No. 6 Sheehan: If the weather holds up, this will be the Green Knights third game in as many days. The Titans get the best of a worn down Notre Dame squad.
No. 4 West Haven vs. No. 1 Amity: Jeremy Soule has the talent, but has been inconsistent. However, so has the Spartans' secondary pitchers. Amity has the better offense though, and the Spartans beat West Haven twice.
Championship, Saturday at Yale Field, noon
No. 6 Sheehan vs. No. 1 Amity: A nice run by the Titans, but the Spartans win their fourth SCC title.
