Woodland dominates Indians, Cross up next

0
WATERTOWN — Perhaps reports that Woodland cannot be an offensive or defensive power were a bit premature after all. The Hawks wiped away all memories of last week's debacle against Wolcott with a dominating, 22-12 win in Watertown Friday night, led by another strong rushing attack, a shut-down secondary, and overpowering line play. Through four games, a theme has emerged in the Woodland offense—give the ball to Jack DeBiase, and success will be on his heels. After carrying the ball only 17 times for 47 yards against the Eagles, head coach Tim Shea and offensive coordinator Tim Phipps decided to place the pigskin back in DeBiase’s arms against Watertown—and boy, were they rewarded. The junior tailback sprung for a season-high 194 yards on 29 carries with two touchdowns to power the Hawks back into the win column.

Hawks record 4-3 loss against Watertown

BEACON FALLS — The Woodland girls’ soccer squad took on the Watertown Indians, the defending NVL champs, at home Friday night and suffered a heartbreaking loss after an inspired rally in the second half. The Hawks were competitive in the first half but seemed no match for the Indians, who dominated possession and pummeled them with shot after shot. Woodland keeper Alma Rizvani let by only two of 10 on-target tries in the first half, one from Nikky Martino in minute 26 and another from Jessica Spezzano in the 29th, and Woodland brought a 2-0 deficit with them to the bench at the half, having taken only two shots in the 40-minute period.

Hawks top Kennedy; sit in first-place tie

0
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.
