Posted on September 10, 2018 |

VERGENNES — Tuesday’s girls’ soccer game at Vergennes Union High School pitted visiting Middlebury, a team that graduated nine valuable seniors and now features a half-dozen freshmen, against the Commodores, who returned two all-stars to their lineup after they missed most or all of the 2017 season.

And on Tuesday those all-stars, senior striker Ciara McClay and junior center midfielder Emily Rooney, combined for five goals and an assist in their team’s 5-0 victory over a Tiger team that is understandably still seeking its identity.

“Now there are dads pushing strollers up and down Main Street and kids in every café. It’s incredible,” says Sweeney. 

There are also flowers, lots of flowers.
