MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School softball team scored in every inning and got one-hit pitching from senior ace Payton Buxton on Wednesday to defeat visiting Burlington, 9-0, and apparently nail down the No. 5 seed for the Division I tournament.

The 12-4 Tigers lost a chance for a top-four seed and two home games the day before when BFA-St. Albans scored four unearned runs in the sixth inning to rally past them, 4-1, but Coach Polly Rheaume has faith that the Tigers can make a postseason run as long as they play to their potential.
