Bears fall in ECC tourney


STONINGTON — Montville limited Stonington High to just three points in the fourth quarter and eliminated the Bears from the ECC girls’ basketball tournament with a 52-48 opening-round victory on Saturday.

Stonington (13-7) owned a 45-44 lead after three quarters and the game was tied at 46 with just under four minutes remaining.

But the Indians took a four-point lead at 50-46 with two minutes left and held on for the victory. Stonington did not make a field goal in the final quarter scoring all three points at the free throw line.

Stonington led 35-32 at the half.

Margot Calmar finished with 20 points for the Bears, including a 12 for 14 (85.7 percent) performance at the free throw line. She also led the team in rebounding with 19. Calmar is averaging 19 rebounds per game.

Tatyana LaFrance Boyce contributed 11 points and seven rebounds. Megan Sartor and Sammi Shroyer scored six each.

Stonington, the No. 8 seed, was 16 for 19 (84.2 percent) at the line.

Taylor LaVallie led Montville (11-10) with 15 points. Jamie Hill added 13 and Cassidy Bundy contributed 12 for the Indians, the No. 9 seed.

This was the third meeting between the teams this season. Montville won the first on Dec. 13 in overtime, 38-37. Stonington prevailed on Jan. 28, 52-44.

Montville advanced to the quarterfinals on Monday at Plainfield at 5:30 p.m. against top-seeded Norwich Free Academy (18-2). The semifinals are Wednesday and the finals Friday, all at Plainfield.

Stonington is off until the Class M state tournament. Pairings will be finalized later this week.
