Soccer division showdowns

The Shelton boys won its third game in the SCC Housatonic Division, winning at Amity 2-1. Shelton is looking every bit the preseason favorite so far.
In the Quinnipiac, Fairfield Prep remained unbeaten with a 3-0 win at home over Hamden in a battle for first place. The game was scoreless at halftime. Then Hamden's Matt Sullo picked up a red card in the early stages of the second half and the Green Dragons had to play a man down for the rest of the game. Their defense held for 10 minutes before the Jesuits finally broke through. Prep was the division favorite here and will be tough to beat. Notre Dame-West Haven won at Xavier to stay in the hunt.
Career/Hillhouse still hasn't lost, but could only manage a scoreless tie against Lyman Hall Tuesday. The co-op team will face Branford on Friday.
And a day after beating Guilford, Bunnell lost again at Pomperaug, this time 3-1. It's the second loss of the season for the Bulldogs, who lost to Pomperaug in the SWC tournament final last year.

In girls' soccer, West Haven dealt Sacred Heart Academy its first loss of the season 3-1 at home. West Haven Hamden and SHA now have one Quinnipiac Division loss apiece. Hamden, the defending champion, beat Mercy Tuesday.
Amity won at Cheshire 1-0 as the three-team race, along with reigning champ Shelton, looks to be one that will continue throughout the season.
