Boys’ Basketball Game Now Set To Be Played Saturday

Published: March 9, 2018

Newtown High School’s boys’ basketball Division II state tournament game at Pomperaug of Southbury has been rescheduled again due to schools being closed in the aftermath of the March 7 storm. The second-round contest is now set for Saturday, March 10, beginning at 6 pm.

The game was originally scheduled for Thursday, March 8 and moved to the next night but three straight days of school cancellations has forced a Saturday makeup game time. Newtown hasn’t played since a first-round win on March 6, and Pomperaug had an opening-round bye.

Newtown is the No. 21 seed in the bracket and Pomperaug is seeded fifth. The winner advances to face the winner of No. 4 Bristol Central and No. 13 Wilton in the quarterfinals, on Monday, March 12.
