The Cheshire girls soccer team returns 17 seniors and 13 starters from a 13-5 season a year ago.
The Rams finished at 13-5 and won the SCC Housatonic Division. They were the only team to beat Guilford, the Class L state champions, and they did it twice (4-3 and 3-2).
Led by Alexandra Pelletier, a returning NH Register All-Area performer, Cheshire should be a team to beat in both the SCC and Class LL state tournaments. And after losing in the opening round of both tournaments last year, there is plenty of motivation for Cheshire this season.
