The third time was the charm for Glastonbury. After two losses in the semifinals the previous two seasons, the Tomahawks broke through in the Division L semifinals this season with an 8-4 victory over Fairfield Ludlowe, but fell short in the final to Greenwich. The victory was a long time coming for the Tomahawks, whose senior class was one of the best in program history. Led by the talented trio of Morgan Walker, Taylor Moreau and Colleen Duggan, Glastonbury went 15-4 and was among the most balanced teams in the state. The Tomahawks were led by Walker (20 goals), Katie DeVito (32), Colleen Duggan (23), Meg Finn (26) and Taylor Moreau (50) on offense and by defender Lauren Bronson and junior goalie Marina Molnar on defense.
As a seventh seed, Granby advanced to the Division S final for the first time ever, but lost to Weston, 8-7.
Glastonbury's Walker was the lone area player to be named All-American. Haddam-Killingworth's Emily Anderson was an honorable mention. Anderson, a multi-sport srat at H-K, will play lacrosse at UConn.
Fairfield County continued to pile up the championships, winning all three divisions for the fifth straight season.
Hall-West Hartford, led by first-year coach Steve Boyle, advanced to the L quarterfinals before losing 13-11 to eventual champ Greenwich. The Warriors were led by freshman standout Alannah Boyle, sophomore Hayley Mullins and senior Olivia Morin.
Avon was among six teams that had to forfeit games after using players who participated in an unsanctioned tryout May 15 in Acton, Mass. Along with Avon, Norwich Free Academy, Ridgefield, New Fairfield, New Canaan and Staples had to forfeit games. But Avon was the only team that missed the postseason because of it. The ruling cost Avon two victories (over Somers and Suffield) and a Class M tournament berth. The Falcons finished 6-10 with a loss to Haddam-Killingworth in their regular-season finale Monday. At 7-9, they would have qualified.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
