Girls’ soccer: VUHS girls’ beat Rice in OT

ADDISON COUNTY — In area girls’ high school soccer play late last week, Vergennes won in overtime, while Mount Abraham and Otter Valley each split a pair of games.
The Commodores knocked off host Rice on Saturday, 1-0, in overtime when Tea Keifer knocked in the rebound of a penalty kick that Green Knight goalie Macie Sicard had stopped.
Commodore goalieK.C. Ambrose was credited with 25 saves as VUHS shut out Rice and evened its record at 2-2. Sicard stopped 10 shots for Rice.
In a game in Bristol that had been scheduled for U-32 on Wednesday but moved to Mount Abe on Friday due to poor weather and field conditions, the visiting Raiders (2-0) edged the Eagle girls, 2-1, in double overtime. U-32’s Aine Kennedy netted a rebound with eight minutes to go in the second extra session for the game-winner.
The Eagles took the lead late in the first halfwhen Meghan Livingston converted a long feed from Harlie Vincent. At 18:24 of the second U-32 tied the game on an Emily George penalty kick. The Eagles created several chances to score late in the half and into overtime, according to Coach Dustin Corrigan. Eagle goalie Zoe Cassels-Brown stopped seven shots, and U-32’s Bailey Starr made nine saves.
On Saturday, the 2-2 Eagles dealt D-III power BFA-Fairfax (2-1-1) a 3-0 home loss. Ernesta McIntosh scored three minutes into the game, and Vincent and Amy Nault added second-half strikes for Mount Abe.
OV split its games at the annual Black River tournament over the weekend. OV won its Friday evening opener over Green Mountain Union, 5-2, as Taylor Aines (three goals) and Jess Frazier (two) combined for the offense. OV goalie Cortney Poljacik made six saves.
In Saturday’s final, host Black River edged the Otters, 4-2. Two Aines goals in the first 20 minutes helped OV forge a 2-2 tie that held until about nine minutes to go, when what OV coach Dave Brown called a communication breakdown allowed BRU to score the go-ahead goal. Poljacik finished with 11 saves for the 1-4 Otters.
