Greenwich's first game is tenatively scheduled for Saturday.

After struggling to get its 15th win, Norwalk finished the regular season on a hot streak, winning its final six games. Managed by Chris Brown, Norwalk Post 12 will host the winner of Ellington vs. Waterford on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m.
Stamford (15-12) had a wild final 10 games, needing to win six of them to qualify for the state tournament. Stamford won exactly six, clinching a berth last Thursday against Westport.
