A closer look
West Haven at Guilford: Guilford has won 14 straight games. West Haven has done well after an awful 2012 campaign, but the Westies will be hard-pressed to pull a major upset here.
Hand at Branford: Hand has had trouble scoring all season, but has a very good keeper in Amy Boswell. Becca Vitale can hold her own for Branford. This could come down to PKs, but I think Branford wins 1-0 in regulation.
Sacred Heart Academy at Mercy: Sacred Heart has lost three straight. Mercy playing at home is tough, including a win over SHA this past Friday.
Amity at Cheshire: These two teams split during the regular season. Cheshire won the second meeting and won the SCC Housatonic Division.
