▶ STO­RY­LINES: Since the CIAC went to a play­off sys­tem: and not just two teams qual­i­fy­ing for the cham­pi­onship game: New­town has been to seven semi­fi­nals and has lost each time. New­town had also strug­gled to beat LL teams (3-7 since the move to Class LL), but the Nighthawks knocked off three-time de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Darien to reach the post­sea­son. Green­wich is where it ex­pected to be this season: with a chance to re­turn to the Class LL fi­nals. The Car­di­nals lost last season to Darien and has been on a mis­sion all season to have a chance to take home their first ti­tle since 2007.
