Samara Thacker made one of two free throws with 3.4 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter on Thursday night giving the No. 13 seed Jonathan Law girls’ basketball team a 52-51 upset win over No. 4 Amity Regional in a first-round game of the Southern Connecticut Conference play-offs.
The win in Woodbridge earned the Eagles (11-10) a quarterfinal round match-up with No. 5 Career, a 65-38 winner over Lauralton Hall on Saturday at Wallingford’s Sheehan High School. The victory by Law also avenged a 48-40 regular-season loss to the Spartans.
