Although they desperately hoped for a different outcome, hundreds of Canton students, parents and basketball fans traveled to cheer on the girls varsity squad in the Class S State Championship game at Mohegan Sun Saturday morning.
After falling behind for much of the game, the Canton girls nearly staged a historic comeback but fell short, losing to Thomaston by a score of 50-52.
The enclosed video and photos showcase some moments from the championship game and events leading up to it, including a Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference press event and luncheon on Wednesday and an early Saturday morning sendoff at Canton High School. Also included below are highlights from CPTV.
