ADDISON COUNTY — In high school boys’ soccer playoff action earlier this week, Middlebury and Vergennes were eliminated on the road in first-round play.
Mount Abraham, the No. 4 seed in Division II, and Otter Valley, D-II’s No. 12 seed, played on Wednesday.
No. 4 Mt. Abe defeated 13 Lamoille, 4-1. In Duxbury, No. 5 Harwood ousted No. 12 OV, 4-0.
NEW HAVEN — The New Haven Conservation Commission, in partnership with the University of Vermont’s PLACE program, will offer an “Outdoor Naturalist” event on Saturday, Oct. 24, as part of the New Haven “Armchair Naturalist Series.” Local naturalist Craig Zondag will lead a public walk to explore mushrooms, birds and some other highlights of the Watershed Center’s public trails.
ADDISON COUNTY — As expected, the Otter Valley and Mount Abraham union high school field hockey teams each earned top-four seeds in Division II, while Middlebury’s tie at Mount Abe in its final regular season game last week gave the Tigers enough points to nab the No. 8 seed in D-I and earn a home postseason game.
Candidates running for political office can no longer claim the banner of anti-politician. Even the status as “outsider” is dubious for most. Hence it was this past Monday that Republican candidate for governor Bruce Lisman admitted to a reporter’s question that, yes, he supposed he was — since the launching of his campaign — a politician.
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College men’s soccer team won two recent home games to improve to 10-2-1, 5-2-1 in NESCAC play. The Panthers return to action on Saturday at Bates.
On Saturday, the Panther rallied past visiting league foe Trinity (5-5-3, 2-5-1 NESCAC) to win in overtime, 2-1, as Kirk Horton scored both goals.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College field hockey team posted two one-sided shutout wins this past weekend to improve to 12-1. The Panthers entered this week ranked No. 3 in NCAA Division III and will visit Bates on Saturday.
On this past Saturday, the Panthers scored four goals in less than 12 minutes in the first half in a 6-0 win over visiting Trinity. Three of those goals came from Pam Schulman.
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College football team scored 27 second-half points on Saturday in a 36-14 win over visiting Williams (2-2) as the Panthers improved to 3-1 and defeated the Ephs for the fourth straight time. Middlebury returns to action this weekend at Bates.
Williams got on the board first with a three-yard touchdown run from Noah Sorrento with 14:36 left in the second quarter. The drive was set up by a 32-yard punt return from Mark Pomella and a 17-yard connection from Austin Lommen to Colin Brown.
