CANTON, Oct. 25 – Leading scorer Chelsea Mitchell has scored in the last six games as the Canton High girls soccer team closed out the regular season with six straight wins with a 3-2 win over Somers on Thursday.

The victory allowed the Warriors (10-6, 10-6 NCCC) to set a new school record for most regular season wins in team history. The previous record was nine wins (9-6-1) in 2007.

Mitchell, who has scored eight of her team-leading 15 goals in the last six games, Julie Langou and Ashley Potter each scored for the Warriors against Somers. Potter and Allison Celmer have scored five goals each.

The Warriors will finish in a four-way tie for fourth place in the league — their best-ever finish in the NCCC.

Canton will return to the field when the Class S tournament begins on Monday, November 5.

Granby has clinched a share of their first NCCC championship since 2011 by finishing the season with a 15-0-1 record, including a scoreless tie with Suffield on September 20.

Suffield (14-0-1) can clinch a share of the championship with a win over Somers on Tuesday, October 30. The Wildcats have won a share of the last six NCCC titles.

Suffield hasn’t lost a game against a NCCC foe since 2011 when they fell to Granby, 2-1, on November 15, 2011 in the Class M tournament. The Wildcats have gone 107-0-5 against NCCC competition since that last loss to the Bears.
