Black and Gold boys’ soccer ties Seymour

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.
