  • NHS Girls’ Soccer Players Compete For Playoff Spot In Tough SWC

    The Newtown High School girls’ soccer team continues to battle for a South-West Conference playoff spot. The Nighthawks sit in ninth place, just one point behind eighth place Pomperaug of Southbury, with two conference games remaining on the schedule. The top eight teams in the SWC will make it into the playoffs.

    Newtown defeated host Stratford 4-0, a team with only one win in conference play, on October 14, to improve to 3-4-4 in conference play (4-4-5 overall).

    Sure, the Nighthawks didn’t win, but they put in quite an effort and were fairly pleased with earning a scoreless tie with visiting Weston in the first game of a Newtown High School soccer doubleheader at Blue & Gold Stadium on September 27 (the boys’ squad followed with a 1-1 tie against Weston in the nightcap).

  • Competitive Girls’ Soccer Team Searches For Consistency

    A couple of ties, followed by a tough-to-swallow loss to begin the season, left Coach Marc Kenney talking to his Newtown High School girls’ soccer team members, perhaps for the longest of the postgame evaluations that will take place this fall.

  • Girls’ Soccer Team Will Begin Playoffs In New Milford

    Not a whole lot — in terms of points — separates the fourth- through eighth-seeded teams in the upcoming South-West Conference tournament. And not much — in terms of head-to-head competition — differentiates the Newtown High School’s girls’ soccer squad from any of the top teams. The Nighthawks, however, will have to go on the road and pull off an upset of sorts to make it through the Saturday, October 26, quarterfinal round.
