MIDDLEBURY — The Mount Abraham Union High School field hockey team continued its revival season on Saturday, when the Eagles fought off a challenge from a shorthanded host Middlebury team and won, 2-0.
The Eagles improved to 7-2-1 and look to be in good shape for a top-four seed in Division II with both the semifinals and final to be played on neutral, artificial-turf fields.
MIDDLEBURY — Visiting BFA-St. Albans earned a 21-3 victory over the Middlebury Union High School football team on Friday by having two backs rush for more than 100 yards, tackling well and recovering three of the six Tiger fumbles.
The Bobwhites improved to 5-1 in Division I and overall, good for a second-place tie with Essex behind undefeated Hartford, while the Tigers dropped to 3-3 overall, 2-3 in D-I. That league mark leaves them in an eighth-place tie with Burlington with two D-I games to go: at Colchester on Friday and vs. Champlain Valley on Oct. 19 at home.
You have to hand it to Mitt Romney in that first debate: his logic was impeccable.
It went something like this: “No, Mr. President, you can’t say my tax cut proposals will create a $5 trillion national deficit over 10 years or that I’ll have to increase taxes on the middle class and slash important benefits to them, if I now say that I won’t let that happen.
“And I‘m saying now that I won’t raise taxes on the middle class and I won’t pass tax cuts that will increase the deficit.”
