The 20-1 Eagles forced 13 first-quarter turnovers in taking a 17-1 lead after eight minutes, and then put it on cruise control on the way to a 60-17 win over the 3-18 T-Birds.

BARRE — Twenty-three down, one to go.

In a Monday Division II semifinal in the Barre Auditorium, the No. 1 Vergennes Union High School boys’ basketball team shrugged off a slow start to get past No. 4 U-32, 54-49, and move to within one game of the title and undefeated season that has been the Commodores’ goal not only since the first day of practice, but also since their disappointing loss in the 2012 final.
