Acouple weeks ago I trickled over to the ancestral homestead in Phoenicia, N.Y., for a couple of days.

The river there is the mighty Esopus, a river built along the same general lines as the Housatonic, but a little smaller and a lot cooler.

That’s because for the 11 miles between the Shandaken tunnel (known locally as The Portal) and the Ashokan reservoir, the Esopus is a tailwater, and thus resembles not the Housatonic but the Farmington.

A tailwater is a river that is fed by cool water releases from a dam. Or, in this case, from another reservoir to the...

Mountaineers fall 16-8 to Tigers

FALLS VILLAGE —Last year, the Sports Medicine Science Academy (SMSA) Tigers entered the Pequot Conference and was visited on opening night by a hungry Housastonic/Wamogo Mountaineers team looking to start that season with a win.
Housy left Hartford’s Dillion Stadium with the win but Head Coach Deron Bayer stated at the time that he was glad he didn’t have to face the Tigers later in the year, because he knew they were going to get better.

Brianna Ongley scored the first goal of the game, with an assist from Anna Geyselaers. The score held up into the second half, but Shepaug scored two goals to win the game 2-1.
Housatonic ended the season with five wins and nine losses.

Housy drops third in a row

FALLS VILLAGE — In the case of the Housatonic/Wamogo Mountaineers football team’s 33-12 loss Monday, Nov. 7, to the Coventry/Windham Tech Patriots, it was speed that mattered.
“Speed kills,” said Head Coach Deron Bayer immediately after the loss.
“They are a very well-coached team, just a very good team,” he said of Coventry Head coach Tony Bonito’s players, still unbeaten in Pequot Uncas division play (7-0).

Mountaineers fall to Falcons, 17-14

Life is full of certainties. They include taxes, death, and now add bad weather when the Housatonic/Wamogo Mountaineers football team hosts the Avon Falcons. Two years ago, a monsoon-like rainfall dumped four inches of rain on the homecoming proceedings. Mother Nature decided to take things up a notch for Saturday’s game, of course, and dumped a heavy snow on the two teams during Avon’s 17-14 double overtime win over the host Mountaineers again on homecoming weekend.

Students make waves with cardboard boats

cynthiah@lakevillejournal.com

LAKEVILLE — The Hotchkiss School held its 16th annual regatta on Sunday, Oct. 22. No, it wasn’t on one of the local lakes or ponds. No other teams participated. In fact, only a core group of first-year science students took part in the competition — which was held in the school’s swimming pool. And featured boats made out of cardboard.
The annual regatta was created as a way to teach science students about buoyancy. Each team of about three students built a boat and then launched it in the pool — with two passengers — to see if it could make it to the bulkhead in the middle of the pool.

Mountaineers football team suffers first loss of season

By a handful of jersey

FALLS VILLAGE —Football is truly a game of inches. Friday night’s (Oct. 21) 27-20 heartbreaking loss for the Housatonic/Wamogo Mountaineers football team to a tough Enfield Raiders team, was a game of a handful of jersey.
After intercepting a Jake Sutterlin (36 carries, 176 yards, two touchdowns) pass attempt with 6:14 left in the game, Enfield went to work at their own 40-yard line. The Raiders were held to short gains on first and second down, and it looked as if the Mountaineers’ bend-but-don’t-break defense was coming back to life.
