Mountaineers lose fifth straight game

FALLS VILLAGE — The Housatonic/Wamogo Mountainers football team was hoping to celebrate senior day by ending a four-game losing streak as well as giving the graduating seniors a final home win. Instead, they found themselves in the Christmas giving spirit as they hosted the Ellington Knights, giving them two gift-wrapped touchdowns on fumbles in the first quarter, on the way to dropping a 28-6 loss — their fifth in a row.
Head Coach Deron Bayer was quick to note that the visitors made the best of the opportunities.
“The difference was that they made big plays,” he said.

“I’m disappointed now, and frustrated,” Belter said about not having the chance for a co-championship. Housatonic’s lone BL title was won in 2005, his rookie year as coach.
