This is a postseason update for Southington High School’s varsity girls soccer team. For more in-depth coverage, read next week’s Southington Observer.
Girls Soccer: Today’s Class LL first-round tournament game of No. 18 Trumbull (8-6-2) at No. 15 Southington (10-5-1) has been cancelled due to an error made by the CIAC. The CIAC released the following statements earlier today:
“The CIAC Class LL and L girls soccer matches scheduled for today, November 7, have been postponed to Wednesday, November 9 due to a seeding error discovered this morning with those tournaments. The Suffield High School team was incorrectly placed in the Class L tournament when the success in tournament factor used in designating soccer tournament divisions should have placed them in Class LL. The oversight was discovered this morning and CIAC notified schools as promptly as possible, reseeded the LL and L tournaments and made the corrections in the seeding and tournament schedules. The LL and L girls tournaments will have first-round games on Wednesday, with the following rounds on Friday and Sunday and then will return to its original schedule with semifinals November 15 and finals November 18 or 19.”
As a result, No. 16 Southington will host No. 17 Shelton (9-6-1) on Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 6 p.m. If the Lady Knights win, they will play at top-seeded Glastonbury (16-0) on Friday, Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. in the second round.
