Sophomore Cali Stietzel hit a 3-point shot with 26 seconds remaining and Megan Kozlowski made a steal on the final play to lead Ridgefield to a 41-40 win over Trumbull in the second of four FCIAC Tournament quarterfinal games at Fairfield Ludlowe. Trinity Catholic defeated Ludlowe, 59-50, in the afternoon’s first game. Danbury and Norwalk also advanced.
Allowing just two fourth-quarter field goals until the closing seconds, Norwalk won the most anticipated game of the FCIAC regular season, 41-37, against the two-time defending champions. The Bears (19-0, 15-0 FCIAC), the No. 1 team in the state, secured the top seed in the FCIAC Tournament, which begins on Saturday.
