The Lakers may have made a stop in Willard Friday night, but it wasn’t those Lakers, as the host Flashes played the role of ‘Showtime’ and ‘Kareem’ed Danbury, 61-16, at Flashes Field.

The win not only marked Willard’s fourth in their first five SBC River Division games, but it also produced a season-high in points scored and the team’s second consecutive 500-plus yard week offensively.

Powered by a balanced attack that piled up 268 yards and four touchdowns on the ground and 258 yards and four more scores via the passing game, Willard (5-3) dominated on both sides of the ball, out gaining the Lakers, 526-88.......Read More

Ladycats Have Good Week Of Volleyball

On Tuesday, Oct. 2, the New London Ladycats traveled to St. Paul High School to take on the Lady Flyers. New London came out strong, and shocked the Flyers. The score of the first set was 24-26. The Ladycats proved they are a good team and could hang in with the state ranked teams. Following set scores for the game were 12-25, and 16-25.

Coach Jill Thomas commented, “Playing a team like St Paul is always nerve wracking. They have had a great program for so long, it’s common for teams to go into the game already feeling defeated. I was very proud of our girls tonight. They didn’t go into the game with that attitude. They saw it as an opportunity to show what a great team we have. I thought our girls played the best I’ve seen all year. They played with heart and hustle and as a team! Offensively, Katie Layport had most of our kills, but all of hitters did a good job of trying to find holes in a stellar St. Paul defense. St. Paul has some great hitters and our defense, led by Brooklyn Hudson, did an awesome job. I think we really surprised St. Paul with our level of play. I am really proud of the girls, and that they were able to demonstrate their true potential against such a good team.”......Read More
