The CIAC State Softball Tournament Quarterfinals are scheduled for Friday, although 1 Quarterfinal game was played on Thursday(smart move).
I do remember some years ago the 1st, 2nd and Quarterfinal Rounds used to be played on 3 consecutive days. (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday). Friday and Saturday were used for makeup days. I don't see the problem of going back to that schedule again. Teams sometimes play 3 or 4 games a week on consecutive days due to the weather.
Cheshire became the 1st team to advance to the Class LL Semifinals by beating Norwich Free Academy 7-6. NFA led 6-2 in that game before Cheshire rallied for the win.
