In what was technically an away game for the Chieftains, the boys hockey team soundly defeated the co-op team that includes its crosstown rival Saturday afternoon on Senior Day before an overflow crowd at Veterans Memorial Rink in West Hartford. Both Conard and the Hall-Southington team play their home games at Veterans Memorial.

Conard’s Grayson Lacroix scored the first goal, but Hall-Southington’s Caelan Booth tied it up and the score was 1-1 at the end of the first period.

Conard dominated the scoreboard for the remainder of the game, with a hat trick by senior Zach Polo and another by Lacroix. Matt McCormick and Patrick Corcoran had assists.

Division II Conard ends the regular season with a record of 9-9-2.

Hall-Southington, which plays in Division III, is 11-7 with one more game left in the regular schedule. The Warrior-Knights will face Division II E.O. Smith-Tolland on Wednesday at Veterans Memorial.

Conard and Hall-Southington have both qualified for divisional championship tournament play, and those pairings will be announced on Friday, March 4.

The no. 6 seeded Conard girls basketball team also came away with a win Saturday afternoon, topping East Hartford 52-25 at home in the first round of the Class LL tournament.

Dezyree Morales had 12 points for the Chieftains, and Lena Proietti and Delaney Connors each added nine.

Saturday’s win was the first state tournament game victory for Conard since 1986. Conard will host no. 11 Glastonbury on Thursday, March 3, at 7 p.m. During the regular season, Conard faced Glastonbury in a home and away series, winning at home 45-39 and losing the away game 37-30.
