Letter: Reader raises concerns from football game
And to my fellow Naugatuck citizens. Allow me to preface my statement by saying that at the Woodland versus Naugatuck football game on Sept. 4 both teams played well and congratulations to the Hawks, rest assured that we will get you next year. However I feel a need to voice my complaint about the rather juvenile tactics of the Beacon Falls fire truck that was present on this night.
For those of us on the Naugatuck side we witnessed that every time the ball was in our possession and we were parallel to the truck that they would shine their lights in a feeble attempt to blind our valiant quarterback. It shows a lack of class, sportsmanship and maturity and makes Woodland look bad. I hope that the so called firefighting professionals that did this will be disciplined, as I will contact the fire chief.
However this paled in short comparison to the antics of some of the Woodland crowd. The night of the game they were actually throwing bottles at our cheerleaders. Let me tell you if I had a daughter on the cheer squad, then you would have seen me on a video making that evening’s nightly news. So to the Naugatuck Hounds and staff I say keep training hard you have a whole town of people like my family that loves you, and as I said before remember this for next year and lets show them what class and determination this town is made of.
