CLINTON, N.Y. — The Middlebury College field hockey team won two NESCAC road games this past weekend. The Panthers (11-1 overall, 7-1 NESCAC) were ranked No. 3 in NCAA Division III last week and will host Bates on Saturday at 11 a.m.
On this past Sunday, the Panthers topped host Hamilton, 7-0, although it took them 15 shots and almost 30 minutes to score their first goal. That came on a corner, when Shannon Hutteman controlled the rebound and found Catherine Fowler for the score with 7:44 left in the first half.

The Public Service Board will decide this week whether to reconsider the benefits of Phase I of the fracked gas pipeline in light of the $35 million (41 percent) cost overrun. The CEO of Vermont Gas Systems (VGS) exclaimed at last week’s hearing that no price was too high for this “once-in-a-lifetime project,” confirming what astute observers already knew: Phase I is, by definition, economically irrational.
