WEDNESDAY RESULTS: Mercy, Middletown, Cromwell, Hale-Ray, H-K all winners on opening night


Whew, lovely opening night. Great showing from Mercy in a rematch of last year's Class LL title game, equally great play out of the gates from Middletown and Cromwell. H-K and Hale-Ray were winners as well, and Portland couldn't finish a comeback against Old Saybrook.

Results:
Joe's Three Cheers of the Day:
  • Cromwell's Janelle Harrison - 19 points, eight rebounds, two steals
  • Mercy's Jordyn Nappi - 19 points (11 in first quarter)
  • H-K's Kiley Anderson (13 points, 11 rebounds) and Tori Peterson (14 rebounds)
Notable:
  • Middletown girls racked up 51 points in their opener against Fermi, and Rajeen Mayo had 12 points and seven assists. Big start for the Dragons. We'll see if they can keep it going Friday against Platt.
Upcoming:
  • Thursday's only area contest is Coginchaug at Valley Regional, 7 p.m. If all goes to plan, Coginchaug should win comfortably.
