Kathryn Arena's brilliant strike from distance 68 seconds into extra time gave Shelton High a hard-fought 3-2 victory over East Haven in the quarterfinals of the SCC girls soccer tournament at Finn Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Arena blasted the ball to the corner of the net from 30 yards out, beating Yellowjacket goalkeeper Caitlin Esposito and propelling the fourth-seeded Gaelettes into the semifinals. Shelton (12-2-3) will host No. 8 seed Mercy on Monday, Nov. 3, at 5:30 p.m. The Tigers upset two-time defending league champions Guilford, the top seed, with a 3-1 victory.
