Hand, Shelton win first SCC soccer titles

It took an extra session, but Hand finally won that first SCC championship in boys soccer 2-1 over Guilford in overtime Saturday at Crisafi Field in East Haven.
Ben Lussier's header with his back to the net was good at 89:10. Hand had tied the game with less than 2 minutes left in regulation courtesy of Tyler Ahern's goal. James Carroll missed a wide open net for Guilford in overtime that would have given the Indians their seventh SCC title.
Hand goalkeeper Tucker Hackett made some incredible saves to earn tournament MVP honors.
A team of destiny? That remains to be seen as Hand heads to the Class L state tournament beginning Monday.
In the girls game, Angie Ferro scored the game's only goal midway through the second half to help Shelton beat Hamden 1-0. Defender Alexander Farley won tournament MVP honors, spearheading the Gaelettes defense to three shutouts in the tournament.
Shelton will be a tough out in Class LL as the No. 4 seed. Hamden also had its best season in some time and will also be in the LL field.
