Windsor Locks is one win away from first NCCC title since 2001

The Windsor Locks High boys basketball team is one win away from winning their first outright North Central Connecticut Conference championship since 2001.

The Raiders won their sixth straight game on Tuesday night with a 46-40 win over Somers to improve to 15-2 overall and 10-1 in the NCCC. Windsor Locks can win the league title outright with a victory over Suffield on Friday night at home. The victory gives Locks a share of the league title.

Canton fans are rooting for Suffield (11-7). If the Raiders lose to Suffield, Canton (11-8, 10-2 NCCC) would share the league championship with Locks.

Suffield already beat Windsor Locks once this season, 55-42, in a non-league contest on January 27. Friday night’s game will be the fourth game in five nights for the Raiders, who beat Rockville on Monday, topped Somers on Tuesday and face Windham Tech on Wednesday.

Canton closes out their regular season with a non-league contest at East Hampton on Thursday night at 7 p.m.
