HARTFORD, Sept. 11 – Canton High junior Devin Kadis earned a spot in the school record book Friday in the season opening game for the Warriors’ girls soccer team. Kadis became just the 11th player in program history to score at least three goals in a game as Canton opened the season with a big 7-2 win over Sport Medicine Science Academy.
Kadis had three goals and two assists as Canton (1-0) scored seven goals in a game for just the fourth time in team history and for the first time since putting seven into the net against Putnam in the 2010 Class S tournament.
Junior Emily Mitchell had two goals for Canton while freshman Ashley Potter and junior Chloe Gucciardi each had one goal. Junior Sophia Langou lent a helping hand with four assists in the contest.
The girls school record for most goals in a game is four by Shiny Douglas against East Windsor in 2008. The team record for most goals in a single game is eight against East Windsor in 2000. The seven goals was a school record for Canton in a season-opening contest.
