HANCOCK — Hancock residents are being asked to gather on Wednesday, Oct. 7, to decide whether to invest around $100,000 into key repairs to their historic town hall building off Route 100.
“The biggest thing is the foundation needs work,” said Hancock Selectwoman Shelley Twitchell. “It hasn’t been tended to like it should have been and it is beginning to crumble.”
MIDDLEBURY — Friday’s game between the Mount Abraham and Middlebury union high school boys’ soccer teams began and ended with Eagle goals, and the second came from senior Dylan Weaver in double overtime and gave the visiting Eagles a 2-1 victory and a 4-1 record.
In between, the 0-4-1 Tigers had more shots on goal and, as Eagle Coach Mike Corey told Tiger Coach Reeves Livesay afterward, probably the better chances in the tightly contested game.
ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school girls’ soccer action in the latter half of last week, Otter Valley kept up its winning ways, but other teams all lost close games to tough competition.
BRISTOL — The Mount Abraham-Vergennes football team picked up its first-ever Division II victory on Saturday, 14-7 over visiting North Country.
The Eagles controlled the first half on both sides of the ball and took a 14-0 lead. Ryan Paquin, who rushed for 106 yards, capped one march with a 7-yard run seven minutes into the first quarter, and Wyatt Gracie finished another drive with a 10-yard run in the second quarter to make it 14-0 at the half.
COLCHESTER — The Middlebury Union High School football team rallied for all of its points in the fourth quarter on Friday to defeat host Colchester, 18-14. The Tigers remained undefeated at 4-0 this fall and pushed the program’s overall winning streak to 26 games.
Junior tailback Trey Kauffman scored three rushing touchdowns in the final period, the last on a 6-yard sweep with 1:25 to go to create the final score. Linebacker Jerry Niemo then intercepted Laker QB Travis Boutin to seal the victory.
ADDISON COUNTY — In area high school field hockey play in the latter half of last week, Mount Abraham split two games, including the Eagles’ first win; Otter Valley won big; and Middlebury dropped a pair of games.
On Wednesday, the Eagles broke into the win column by topping visiting Colchester, 3-1. Evan Laurent and Danielle Bachand scored for Mount Abe, and goalies Danielle Morse andSamantha Bruce combined for two saves. Abby Ladd stopped 10 shots for the Lakers.
BRANDON — The boys’ soccer team at Otter Valley Union High School split two games late last week, including a homecoming win on Saturday that put the Otters into the victory column.
BRANDON — The Otter Valley Union High School football team prevailed in a big Division III clash on Saturday, 35-7 over previously undefeated Woodstock.
At 4-0, the Otters are one of two unbeaten teams left in D-III; U-32 (3-0) is the other. OV is set to travel to U-32 on Oct. 2.
The 3-1 Wasps had played a tougher schedule than OV and had scored 98 points in three games before being held to seven by the Otters.
