Hawks spike Kennedy for NVL crown

ANSONIA – Woodland can party like it’s 2007 all over again.

For the second time in three years, the Hawks spikers are Naugatuck Valley League champions, as the Black and Gold beat top-seeded Kennedy, 3-1 (25-16, 27-25, 9-25, 26-24), in Thursday’s title game at Ansonia High.

After dominating the first game, the Hawks trailed by as many as six points late in game two. But Woodland steadily climbed out of the deficit and eventually took a 23-22 lead on the strength of senior Steph Badale’s five-point service run. The teams traded the next six points, each facing a game point at one point, until an epic rally featuring 25 exchanges of the ball ended when senior Emily Hutvagner found the center of the Kennedy floor for the kill.
