JAY PEAK — Despite a 34-10 advantage in shots on goal in Saturday’s Division II semifinal, the No. 6 Middlebury Union High School girls’ hockey team came up short at No. 2 North Country, 3-2.
The Tigers finished at 13-9, including an overtime playoff win at No. 3 Rutland and a win at No. 1 Harwood in their regular season finale that showed they were a threat for the D-II title.
Coach Tim Howlett said the team also played well on Saturday, but ran into some bad luck and a hot goaltender, the 16-5 Falcons Mikaella Doran.
