BEACON FALLS — In a meeting of two unbeaten teams—one power and one upstart—power won out in the end. After dropping the first game, Woodland (6-0) staved off Kennedy (6-1) Wednesday night, 3-1 (15-25, 25-23, 25-15, 25-23), to remain atop the Naugatuck Valley League standings. The Eagles won 10 of the match’s first 14 points, prompting Hawks coach Jim Amato to call time out, in an effort to regroup. But his squad rarely strung together consecutive points and the Eagles, though not a big-hitting team, made few errors, constantly keeping the ball in play en route to a 10-point win.
BEACON FALLS — It wasn’t quite an upset, but it sure was close. The Woodland boys’ soccer squad took on Seymour Tuesday afternoon at home and, for the first time in Woodland’s history, took something home from the matchup that wasn’t a loss. The game ended in a 2-2 draw after two overtime periods, and the boys seemed to be glad for the change. And it almost wasn’t a change. For almost 70 minutes, the game rolled by scoreless. In the first half, the ball—not to mention the game—was up in the air as much as it was on the ground.
