Housy girls soccer still upbeat


FALLS VILLAGE — Despite a record of four wins, six losses and one tie so far this season, Housatonic Valley Regional High School girls varsity soccer coach Richard Greco is optimistic.

"We had three very close games that could have gone one way or another," Greco said. "It could have been a victory in those games, but instead they were losses. But I think we’ve been playing well."

On Tuesday, Oct. 13, the team lost against Terryville, 6-0.

"I think that game is misleading," Greco said. "We brought up some junior varsity players to play the game. The way things were we would have lost anyway. We played well, but we just didn’t make as many shots as they did. It was just one game so we don’t dwell on that one."

On Wednesday, Oct. 14, the girls played Litchfield and won by a score of 2-0.

"The first game we played against them this season we lost by 2-1, so this is an improvement," he said. "We had a good performance by goalie Kayla Robinson, but the real key of the game is that we scored early. Brianna Ongley scored the first goal unassisted, then two minutes later Ellie Yahn scored with an assist from Meredith Carling."

Greco said the team will continue to try to win games by switching around its strategy.

"We’re going from a two-man line to a three-man line and into different positions. It worked well against Litchfield," he said. "We’ll try to continue to see if it pays off for the rest of the season."
