CHS Girls' Soccer Gets Key Win Over Shelton On Saturday, Extends Win Streak To Four Games


After winning three straight road games, Cheshire High School girls’ soccer (4-1) kept up their hot streak on Saturday, earning a 2-1 victory over previously undefeated Shelton (3-1-1) at Alumni Field. Cheshire jumped ahead 2-0 on the way to beating their rival for the first time since 2017. 

CHS opened the scoring with 26:35 remaining in the first half. Senior Izzy Pellegrino played the ball ahead to sophomore Gabby Tirado, who with a defensive back on her hip, turned to boot a shot precisely into the left corner of the net.

Pellegrino followed up with her first goal of the year, converting on a deep free kick with 8:59 left in the opening half.

Shelton cut the deficit on a goal by senior Emily Sandin with 8:40 remaining in the game, but the Rams held on to secure the win. Senior tri-captain/goalkeeper Seymone Rosenberg and Shelton junior goalie Julia Pulley both had five saves.

On Tuesday, CHS hosts Sheehan (2-2-1) at 5 p.m.
