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.
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.
