Enfield won its second straight CCC girls basketball championship, pulling away in the second half to score a 60-49 win over Hall in the championship game. Hall led at the half, but a strong defensive effort by the Eagles and a big half from leading scorer Mary Baskerville allowed Enfield to pull away in the second half.
Baskerville had 32 points, most of them coming in the second half, for the Eagles. Hall led by four at the half and was up 47-45 after three quarters, but the Enfield defense clamped down in the final quarter, allowing the Warriors just two points. Baskerville scored to tie the score to open the final period and then the Eagles hit two quick three pointers by Cassandra Urso and Kaitlyn Bourque to open a lead they would never relinquish. Bourque had three baskets from beyond the arc in the game.
Olivia Bonee hit four 3-pointers in the first half to spark Hall to a 32-28 lead. She finsihed with five threes to lead the Hall scoring.
Enfield reached the finals with wins over Platt, Rocky Hill and number one seed RHAM. Baskerville scored 48 points in the win over RHAM. Hall, the #5 seed, reached the championship game for the first time by beating Middletown, Glastonbury and Berlin.
