Hounds almost pull off huge comeback

1
NAUGATUCK — It hasn’t been an easy season so far for the Greyhounds, as the coaching staff continues to try to instill a total-team-effort mentality. Naugatuck (0-7) took a big hit last week when leading scorer Warren Buerkle went down with an injury in a loss to Kennedy. The Greyhounds were just showing signs of putting it together, outscoring both Holy Cross and Woodland in the second half of recent losses. Now, with Buerkle on the sideline, it was gut check time for the young Greyhounds. On Friday at the Edward Mariano Gymnasium, in front of a hometown crowd bordering on 250 fans, the Greyhounds quickly came unraveled, as Ansonia burst out to a 20-6 first period lead.

NAUGATUCK — The Naugatuck boys’ swim team began its quest for a fourth straight Naugatuck Valley League title Tuesday night, upending Seymour by a convincing, 97-72 margin at the Gimbo Sullivan Pool. The Greyhounds were coming off a season-opening loss to perennial state power Glastonbury, by a 96-82 margin. Naugy is a young squad with limited experience, making the NVL opener against the Wildcats a huge measuring stick for the season.

Hawks’ 4-game win streak ends

ANSONIA — In a game that would be hard to describe as anything other than ugly, the Woodland boys’ basketball squad ended its four-game winning streak with a 64-57 loss Tuesday to divisional rival Ansonia, marking the Hawks’ first Brass Division defeat of the year. While the Black and Gold placed three players—seniors Bryan Spickle, Shaine Thompson, and Ryan Genua—in double figures, they committed 21 turnovers and allowed the Chargers to bang eight three-pointers, all of which seemed to come at incredibly inopportune times for the Hawks.
