Girls' Games To Watch On The Hardwood This Winter

There are sure to be some intense contests on the girls' court this winter. Here are some games to circle on the schedule (all contests start at 7 pm unless otherwise noted):

Dec 23 - Masuk at Bunnell; Jan 23 - Bunnell at Masuk: The teams split last winter and neither game was particularly close. The fact they play very early and again a month into the campign could serve as a good progress barometer.

Dec 23 - New Milford at Stratford, 5:15; Jan 10 - Stratford at New Milford: Stratford won both meetings, including a five-point contest last winter.

December 23 - Brookfield at Weston, 1:30 pm: The Bobcats claimed a three-point win last year.

Jan 6 - Stratford at Immaculate: Both teams have new coaches and this is an early-season matchup.

Jan 9 - Notre Dame at Bethel, 6 pm: ND went unbeaten against SWC competition until being upset by Bethel in the SWC semis last February.

Jan 14 - Newtown at Pomperaug: The place to be for defense, perhaps. Newtown won 37-30 last winter.

Jan 16 - Newtown at Bethel, 6 pm: Rematch of last year's title game, won by Newtown.

Jan 17 - Notre Dame at Pomperaug: ND won 71-66 in OT last year, a rare high-scoring contest for the Panthers.

Jan 28 - Barlow at Masuk: Most of Barlow's games were double-digit outcomes, including a 12-point loss to Masuk in their second meeting last winter. The Falcons also beat Masuk by three in their first go-around.

Feb 7 - Brookfield at Masuk: Brookfield won a three-point clash between these teams last winter.

Feb 7 - Bethel at New Fairfield: The Rebels hung close in a low-scoring two-point setback to Bethel last winter.

Feb 11 - Notre Dame at Kolbe: Last year, the Lancers won this matchup by seven. Two years ago Kolbe beat ND in the title game.

Feb 14 - Kolbe at Newtown: Most of Kolbe's many wins last year were lopsided, but the Newtown game was close.

Feb 18 - Kolbe at Pomperaug: This is the last game of the slate for both and could determine a lot for SWC playoff seeding, Masuk Coach Micahel Collins notes. Pomperaug handed Kolbe one of its few losses a year ago.

Feb 18 - Newtown at New Fairfield: Same as above; seedings could be altered by this regular-season finale.
