SOUTH BURLINGTON — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ lacrosse team remained undefeated after Saturday’s game in South Burlington thanks to Jack Hounchell’s late goal, which secured the 6-5 win for the Tigers. It was Hounchell’s third goal of the day and came just three minutes before the final whistle.
Senior Connor Quinn added a goal and two assists to the Tiger effort vs. the 2014 Division-I finalist.
Nathan Lalonde stopped 16 Rebel shots, while his opposite number turned away 10 Tiger shots.

Unfortunately, lots of people of different ethnicities in our state of Vermont are racially profiled at least once in their life, creating horrible memories.
