VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union High School boys’ soccer team made Saturday’s good-sized homecoming crowd happy with a solid, 3-0 win over Missisquoi.
The positive result not only gave the fans something to cheer about, but it also avenged a recent 3-1 loss to the 1-5-1 T-Birds, snapped the 2-5 Commodores’ three-game losing streak, and, said Coach Kevin Hayes, offered his team something to build on moving forward with two rivalry games next on the schedule.
The Commodores visit Middlebury on Tuesday and host Mount Abraham on Friday.
