WINDSOR LOCKS, Oct. 19 – Chelsea Mitchell scored her team-leading 11th goal of the season on Friday as the Canton High girls soccer team won their eighth game of the year with an 2-1 North Central Connecticut Conference win over Windsor Locks.

Alison Celmer scored her fourth goal of the year for the Warriors, who improved to 8-6 on the year – one win shy of the school record of nine wins in the regular season. Canton went 9-6-1 over a decade ago in 2007.

The single season record for wins in a season is 11. The Warriors won two games in the CIAC Class S tournament in 2007, advancing as far as the quarterfinals  that season.

Julie Lau made eight stops in net to secure the victory. Julie Langou and Celmer each had assists in the game.

Canton trailed 1-0 at halftime on a goal from Windsor Locks’ Casey Findlay with seven minutes in the first half. Mitchell scored with 15 minutes in the second half and Celmer scored about seven minutes later for a 2-1 advantage.

The Warriors close out the regular season with a pair of home games on the field turf at Canton High. East Granby (10-4) will be in town for a 7 p.m. start on Tuesday with Canton closing out the regular season by hosting Somers (6-5) on Thursday at 4 p.m.
