Using motivation from last year's CIAC class M state tournament run, the No. 11 seeded St. Joseph High School girls basketball team broke away from third-seed New London High School midway through the third quarter and stunned the Whalers 67-63 Tuesday night in New London.
"This feels great," SJHS junior Jackie Jozefick said. "Last year we lost in quarters and we wanted to come back and get the chance to play against everybody else that we weren't able to play last year. I was frustrated at points tonight, but I am just happy to be here. We did everything that we could to beat New London and it worked. I couldn't be happier for the team now."
