MIDDLEBURY — The second-seeded Middlebury Union High School girls’ hockey team had little trouble in Wednesday evening’s home Division I quarterfinal, blanking visiting No. 7 South Burlington, 7-0.

The harder part begins next Wednesday, when the 16-3-2 Tigers (9-3-1 in D-I play), will host No. 3 BFA-St. Albans. The Bobwhites are 10-9-1 overall, including games vs. out-of-state competition, but they were 9-4 in league play and split two games with the Tigers this winter. MUHS won more recently at home, 4-1, while the Comets prevailed in St. Albans earlier this season, 6-2.

The D-I final is set for Wednesday, March 9, at 8 p.m. at the University of Vermont’s Gutterson Arena. Either No. 1 Essex, the two-time defending champion, or No. 4 Rutland, will be waiting for the Tigers or Comets. Essex, which defeated the Tigers in the 2015 final, edged Rutland twice this winter by one goal.

The Tigers split two games with Essex, each team winning on home ice, while MUHS faced the Raiders three times, picking up two wins and a tie.

On Wednesday vs. the Rebels, who finished at 5-15-1 but with just one league win, the Tigers’ top unit of Julia Carone (three goals, an assist), Monroe Cromis (a goal and three assists) and Andi Boe (a goal and two assists) paced the attack.

Goalie Rowan Hendy (six saves) was rarely tested, but made two tough stops early in the second period when the Tigers were ahead by just 2-0.

Those early Tiger goals came from Boe, who scored from the right-wing circle with Raven Payne assisting, and Carone, who circled from behind the net and beat Rebel goalie Erin Church (38 saves) from a sharp angle through a crowd of players.

In the second period, Carone netted the rebound of a Boe shot, and Satchel McLaughlin added an unassisted goal.

In the third, the Tigers tacked on three power-play goals. Cromis found the lower right corner from the high slot on a play set up by Carone and McLaughlin, Carone tipped a Cromis pass home from the doorstep, and Georgina Mraz netted her own rebound on a play that started with a Molly Wetmore shot from the left point.

A more detailed story with quotes and photos will appear in the Feb. 29 print edition of the Independent.
