OLD LYME — 12PM UPDATE: Old Lyme girls defeated Coginchaug 1-0 this morning to advance to the Shoreline Championship final against Haddam-Killingworth. The final will be played Monday, afternoon (Nov. 16) in Old Lyme with a 1:30 p.m. kick-off.

Top-seeded Old Lyme meet #4 seeds Coginchaug in a Shoreline Conference semifinal this morning. Kick-off is at 10 a.m. on the Lyme-Old Lyme varsity field behind Center School.

The other semifinal took place Friday afternoon. Haddam-Killingworth defeated East Hampton 2-0 and move onto a berth in the final.

Although Old Lyme, coached by Paul Gleason, have played in the state tournament final for the past five years, ending as champions in four of those years, the team does not have the opportunity to repeat that success as there is no state tournament this year due to COVID.

The last time the Old Lyme girls won the Shoreline Conference tournament was 2016.
