The Hall girls soccer team earned an unexpected opportunity to host a home tournament game after defeating Brien McMahon in overtime Tuesday afternoon.

The Hall girls soccer team came into the CIAC Class LL tournament as a No. 22 seed, with a 6-7-3 record following a Senior Night loss to crosstown West Hartford rival Conard last week, and they needed to travel to Fairfield County for their first round game, to face No. 11 seed Brien McMahon of Norwalk.
Hall coach Scott Ferguson said he was looking forward to how his team responded to states, and respond they did, in a big way.
There were a lot of “what-ifs” that came through for Hall, earning the Titans a chance to host the second round game. They took a 2-2 tie against 9-5-2 McMahon into overtime, where junior Katherine Pillow scored the game-winning goal to stun the Senators. Goals for Hall scored during regulation came from juniors Madison Maxwell and Sally Kritzman.
In their same bracket, No. 6 Enfield, bringing a record of 11-3-2 into the tournament, hosted No. 27 Wilton Tuesday night – and lost.
That means Hall (7-7-3), as the higher seed, will host the Wilton Warriors (6-7-3) in a game set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Chalmers Stadium.
