Hawks top Kennedy; sit in first-place tie


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.
