AVON, Dec. 1 – The Avon High field hockey team won’t share the NCCC championship this fall. The Falcons finished 11-1 in the league. Their only loss was a 2-1 decision to eventual Class S champion Granby in the second-to-last game of the season.
However, due to the lengthy power outage following the Oct. 29 snowstorm that cut power to 831,000 Connecticut Light and Power customers across the state, Granby wasn’t able to complete its league schedule.
Granby, like Avon, Canton, Farmington and Simsbury, was hard hit by the outage and there was no school and no opportunity for Granby to play its final league game against Stafford. Granby finished 10-1 in the league, earning 20 points (two points for every win).
Avon earned 22 points for their 11 victories. The league athletic directors met in mid-November to discuss the issue and voted not to grant an exemption to the league bylaws.
