Girls hoops cap regular season at 14-6

-->

Going into the final four games of the season, you knew it would be a rough stretch for the Devils. They had to contend with the top three teams in the conference -- Cromwell, Morgan and H-K -- as well as Old Saybrook, a team just behind the Devils in the conference standings.

First up was the Old Saybrook Rams at home on Feb. 10. The Rams prevailed 51-43.

Morgan Kuehnle led Coginchaug with 21 points and shared rebounding honors with Caryn Sibiskie, with eight. Kim Romanoff added 10 points for the Devils.

Next up was the Cromwell Panthers, on the road, Feb. 14.

The local girls hung tough throughout the game, trailing by only one entering the final period. But Cromwell outscored the Devils in the final period 11-7 to come away with a 43-38 victory.

For the Devils, Kim Romanoff had seven assists, and Caryn Sibiskie pulled in six rebounds, with Naomi Rinaldo adding five boards.

Next was the Morgan Huskies, who the Devils hosted on Feb. 17.

Coginchaug got off to an abysmal start, trailing 18-8 after one period, and never fully recovered, as Morgan chalked up a 51-39 victory.

Kim Romanoff led the Devils with 13 points and five steals. Morgan Kuehnle scored 11 points, and Caryn Sibiskie chipped in with 10 points. Sibiskie shared the rebounding honors with Kate Williams and Naomi Rinaldo, who each pulled in five boards.

The last regular season game was at the H-K Cougars Feb. 19. In a see-saw battle that saw the locals trailing by one entering the final period, Coginchaug prevailed on the road, 49-46.

Kim Romanoff led the Devils with 16 points, and also had three assists. Caryn Sibiskie scored 14 points and led the team in rebounds with seven. Morgan Kuehnle dropped in 12 points, and chipped in four rebounds and two assists. Amy Arcari scored three, and Kate Williams and Naomi Rinaldo each scored two for the Devils.

Coginchaug finished the regular season with a 14-6 record, and was 13-5 in the Shoreline Conference, which left it tied for third.
