Season Record: 4-4
It was a game of big plays and more than a few mistakes when the Woodstock football team visited Springfield before a large crowd Friday night. And despite the humid conditions that can sap a small squad, Woodstock’s traditionally solid ground game pushed the team to another victory, as it downed the rejuvenated Cosmos by a 41-12 score.
The game was much tougher than the final score might indicate. Woodstock led only 21-12 midway through the third quarter before Nikolai Davis’ third touchdown run (all 27 yards or longer) gave Woodstock a 16-point lead. In the final period the Wasps tacked on two more touchdowns, one from Daniel Robinson from 21 yards out and the other a 5-yard Nehemiah Wood scamper, to establish the final margin.
It’s been a long, long time since the words “Woodstock” and “football” and “lost” were used in the same sentence. Three years and two days ago, Woodstock lost 20-0 to Mt. Abraham, just two weeks after Hurricane Irene ravaged this community… read more
Although given a good test by the Olympians, Woodstock rebounded from its first football loss in over three years by downing Oxbow 35-20. The hosts trailed only 21-20 entering the final quarter before two Woodstock touchdowns established the final 15-point margin.
Less than a year after last year’s overtime loss in the Division III state championship, the Minutemen beat the Woodstock football team on its home field Friday, 25-13.
It was a battle of youth versus youth when Woodstock matched up with Winooski in high school football Friday night. Each team had only three seniors that saw game action as the young Wasps defeated the only slightly older Spartans by a 36-6 score.
Wasps falling to the home team by a 38-7 score.
Last season’s game, a 41-32 Woodstock victory, was a thrill-a-minute ride with both teams scoring almost every time they had the ball. This game started out the same way with both teams marching down the field and scoring on their opening possessions, the Vikings’ successful two-point conversion the difference in an 8-7 lead.
But, unlike last year’s veteran unit, these young Wasps could not continue to match the speed and the physicality of their Division II foe. The hosts added one more touchdown in each quarter to pull away for the win.
Despite the defeat, coach Ramsey Worrell was not unhappy that the schedule makers had kept Lyndon on the Woodstock schedule again this year.
