Hockey girls win big over Mounties
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School hockey team erupted on offense against winless Mount St. Joseph on Saturday and coasted to a 14-1 home win.
Emmy Hescock paced the attack with four goals, and Saige Twombly added three goals. Gen Beloin and Maria Ploof chipped in with a pair of goals apiece, and Theresa Huestis, Sara Boudah and Kayla Quesnel-Cousino contributed one tally each.
Tiger goalie Ashley Howlett stopped nine of the 10 MSJ shots she faced as the Tigers improved to 2-1. That win total equals that of the Tigers’ regular season last winter.
The Tigers also will host Woodstock on this Saturday at 4:45 p.m. Their Dec. 9 home game vs. Rutland was postponed due to winter weather. That game has been rescheduled for this coming Monday at 6:30 p.m.
MUHS is on the road at Harwood next Wednesday.
On Dec. 27 and 28 the Tigers will host a four-team tournament at Middlebury College’s Chip Kenyon Arena. On Dec. 27 South Burlington and Lake Placid will face off at noon, and MUHS and Saranac Lake will meet at 2 p.m. On Dec. 28 the consolation and final are set for 2 and 4 p.m., respectively.
