CANTON, Oct. 17 – The Canton High girls soccer team has three games left in the regular season and two are at night. The Warriors (2-9-2, 2-9-2 NCCC) host winless Hartford Classical on Saturday at 7 p.m. under portable lights at the turf field in Canton as part of the annual night doubleheader. The Canton boys face Classical at 5 p.m.

The Canton girls have won just twice thus far this season but have played plenty of close games. The Warriors are 0-4-1 in the last five games but battled to a 1-1 overtime tie with Ellington and dropped three one-goal games including a 1-0 OT loss to Bolton last week.

The Warriors put 20 shots on goal against Bolton (6-6) but couldn’t get a shot past goalies Rachel and Brooke Damborse. Canton goalie Alexis Neeley made five saves but Bolton’s Gracie Ross scored with 26 seconds remaining to lift the host Bulldogs to the win.

Chelsea Mitchell had a goal and Neeley had 10 saves as Canton battled to an overtime tie with Ellington, 1-1 earlier this month. After dropping a 7-0 decision to Suffield, the Warriors dropped a 1-0 decision to Bolton.

On Tuesday, Canton got goals from Mitchell and Julie Langou but fell short in a 3-2 decision to East Windsor. Neeley had four saves for the Warriors, who had 23 shots on net.

Canton faces winless Classical (0-11) on Saturday night in the final home game of the season for the Warriors. Canton travels to Windsor Locks next Tuesday, Oct. 24 and closes out the regular season by playing East Granby at 6 p.m. under the lights on the road.
