"A good friend of mine used to say, 'This is a very simple game. You throw the ball, you catch the ball. You hit the ball. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains.' Think about that for a while.”
And sometimes, you can't hit water if you fell out of a boat. Ebby Calvin "Nuke" LaLoosh, played by Tim Robbins, tells this to a reporter in the classic baseball movie Bull Durham. These were words of wisdom taught to Nuke by Crash Davis, played by Kevin Costner. These words came to mind after I finished shooting Stratford vs. Bunnell high School in Boys basketball. I definitely felt as though I couldn't hit water if I fell out of a boat as it seemed like every great play happened on the other end of the court...
But I digress - on to the pictures.....

Yesterday, I chronicled the first game I shot on Saturday, Ansonia being upset by Valley Regional, 21-20. Game 2 was another nail-biter featuring Shelton and Xavier - a game that would be decided in overtime.
Shelton QB Mark Piccirillo carries the ball.
Xavier's Glenn cunningham ran for 162 yards on 27 carries, including two touchdowns.
Shelton's Shane Corcoran completes a pass which he takes to the endzone to score.
Shelton's Chris Kanios (1) had a big day, including a 78-yard punt return for a touchdown.
Piccirillo had to scramble all day.
Michael Scherer's 5-yard run in overtime lifted Xavier to a 28-27, come-from-behind win over the previously unbeaten Gaels in an all-SCC Class LL-Small final at Ken Strong Stadium.
