Greyhounds best rival Seymour, still perfect

0
SEYMOUR — The latest edition of this rivalry was as meaningful as any but less competitive than most. Marcos Soares scored twice, and Tiago Martins also netted a goal for the Greyhounds as Naugatuck (13-0-1) bested Seymour (7-4-3), 3-1, Monday at DeBarber Field in a game that the visitors controlled from the outset. After failing to capitalize on several early scoring chances, the Garnet and Grey’s pressure finally showed up on the scoreboard. Thirty yards from the net, senior defender Ali Gadoush landed an arcing chip on the forehead of Martins, who was triple-teamed to the left of the Seymour goal. A sprawling Mike Breault managed to tip Martins’ bid, only to have Soares collect the ball before it ever hit the ground and blast it home for a 1-nil lead in the 20th minute.

Hawks record 4-3 loss against Watertown

0
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.
