SOUTHERN CONNECTICUT CONFERENCE

SCC Girls Soccer 2020 Season Preview

 

Southern Connecticut Conference 2020 Girls 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 21 schools, divided into three divisions, that compete in SCC girls 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 Platt Tech to the fold.


Division A: Mercy, Cheshire, Sheehan, Lyman Hall, Sacred Heart Academy, 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, Lauralton Hall, West Haven

Defending Champs: Guilford is the defending SCC champion. Guilford defeated Shelton, 2-1, in last year’s final. Following its SCC title, Guilford went on to defeat East Lyme by the same score in the Class L state championship game to cap off an 18-2-3 season. They also were named the Town Fair Tire “Best of 2019-2020” award winner in a vote this past summer. Ironically, Guilford was not a division champion last year as Amity, Cheshire, Mercy, and Shelton claimed that honor.

NOTEBOOK: Girls Soccer Semifinals are Nov. 4
