MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School girls’ lacrosse team had little trouble with a longtime rival on Friday, when the Tigers thumped Mount Anthony, 18-5.
Nine Tigers scored, led by sophomore middie Emily Robinson’s five goals, as MUHS improved to 2-1.
The Tigers’ only loss has come to a 4-1 Rutland team in their opener, and in that 10-8 road setback MUHS played without senior standout midfielders Chrissy Ritter and Brandi Whittemore.
