MUHS and OV boys’ basketball teams win on the road

ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school boys’ basketball play in the latter half of last week, Middlebury continued its winning ways, Otter Valley broke through for its first victory of the season, and Mount Abraham came up short on the road.
The Otters also hosted the Eagles on Saturday night; see story. Vergennes was idle, and returns to action on Wednesday, when the 11-0 Commodores will host Milton.
On Saturday, the Tigers dismissed host Mill River, 61-35, despite again losing senior point guard Mitchell Clarke to injury. Clarke, according to the Rutland Herald, limped off the court in the first quarter and did not return, and his status is uncertain with the Tigers heading into a challenging stretch: Three of their next four games are at home against Missisquoi (8-3), Fair Haven (7-3) and Vergennes (11-0).
But the Tigers still bolted to a 16-5 lead after one period and took further control when Perry DeLorenzo scored 19 of his game-high 21 in the second quarter as the Tiger lead stretched to 39-15. Connor Collins aided the cause with 20 points and several assists, and Tyler Provencher chipped in 11 points. The Tigers also held their third straight opponent to fewer than 40 points and fourth straight foe to 42 points or fewer.
On Friday, OV outscored host Proctor in the first quarter, 18-3, and cruised to a 52-46 win that was Coach Greg Hughes’ first career win. The Phantoms scored 21 in the fourth quarter to make the final score respectable. Ryan Kelley led OV with 25 points and John Winslow added 10 as OV moved to 1-8.
On Thursday, host Mill River topped the Eagles, 68-58, as Minuteman Jay Carleton reached the 1,000-point milestone. Carleton finished with 23. The Minutemen led at the half, 31-25, and stretched the lead to nine entering the fourth quarter.
Sawyer Kammantossed in a game-high 25 and Ryan Barnes added nine for the Eagles, who dropped to 1-9 heading into their Saturday rematch with the Otters. Mount Abe nipped OV in OT back on Dec. 18 in Bristol.
