Daniel Hand's Testori Wins National Soccer Honor

Daniel Hand senior forward Scott Testori was selected the National Player of the Year by the United Soccer Coaches Association. Testori is the first state player to win the National Player of the Year laurels. The award began in the 1994 season.

Testori had previously been named the Connecticut Player of the Year, All-American and All-New England each of the past two seasons. He is a two-time winner of the SCC’s player of year award.

Hand won three Class L state championships during Testori’s first three seasons. The Tigers went undefeated this past season, but no state tournament was held due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Daniel Hand compiled a 64-7-9 record during Testori’s four years. The Tigers won a pair of Southern Connecticut Conference tournament titles (including Division B this year), two league regular-season titles and three division crowns.

Testori finished his career with a program-best 86 goals, along with 32 assists.   He recently signed a national letter of intent to play at University of Connecticut.

SCC Boys Soccer 2020 Season Preview

 

Southern Connecticut Conference 2020 Boys Soccer Preview

2020: The 2020 season begins Thursday, October 1. Due to the late start, all SCC teams will play 11 regular-season games. The goal is to have each of the three divisions have playoffs where all teams qualify.

Division Alignment: There are 20 schools, divided into three divisions, that compete in SCC boys soccer in 2020. These divisions will be in effect for the 2020 season only. With CIAC mandating regional play due to Covid-19, we have had to shuffle the deck this year and welcome Whitney Tech and Platt Tech to the fold. Fairfield Prep will play in a FCIAC "region" this fall.

Division A:  Xavier, Cheshire, Sheehan, Lyman Hall, Whitney Tech, Hamden, North Haven

Division B: Daniel Hand, Guilford, Branford, East Haven, Wilbur Cross, Career/HH

Division C: Shelton, Amity Regional, Foran, Jonathan Law, Platt Tech, Notre Dame, West Haven

Defending Champs: Guilford won the 2019 SCC championship by virtue of a 2-0 win over rival Daniel Hand. Amity, Xavier, Guilford, and Hand were your division winners last fall. Ironically, it was the Tigers who would claim a state title when they beat Wilton in a 4-3 OT classic for the Class L crown.
