October magic

Amazingly, the regular season is more than half over for every fall sport but football. Storylines have developed all over the place.
In football, Ansonia looks like it could go wire-to-wire as the top team in our top 10 poll. Shelton, Hand-Madison, Seymour, Stratford and Bunnell-Stratford are also undefeated. Two of these teams will lose before the season is out, but all have a good chance of making the state playoffs if they continue their success.
In boys' soccer, Cheshire took a step forward Tuesday as being the top team in the Southern Connecticut Conference by beating Xavier at home. These two teams could meet in the SCC final for the second straight year, but Guilford might be the team that could spoil that from happening.
Speaking of SCC tournament finals, Cheshire and Hand seem to be on a collision course to do so in girls' soccer. Both teams are undefeated, but don't face one another during the regular season. I wouldn't count out Amity-Woodbridge, the defending champions, just yet, though.
Girls' swimming gets the stage to itself next Monday evening when Cheshire can set the national record of consecutive dual meets won with 235. The current mark of 234 is held by Elkhart, Indiana. Cheshire faces Branford at the Cheshire Community Center at 7 p.m. on Oct. 15. Kudos to Ed Aston and the many, many swimmers who have kept the streak intact since before any current high school student was born - in 1986.
On Oct. 19, the Guilford girls' cross country team goes for its fourth straight SCC championship at Hammonasset State Park in Madison. Hamden's Courtney Dinnan goes for her second straight individual title. The boys division looks to be wide open.
These teams and individuals will try to keep those great seasons going as October turns to November - when the season really matters most.
