Girls’ soccer: Mt. Abe ties, all other teams fall

ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school girls’ soccer play, all on this past Friday, Mount Abraham and another Division II contender battled to a tie, while Middlebury and Otter Valley dropped road contests. Vergennes fell to Rice at home (See story).
The Eagles surrendered a first-half goal to Milton’s Carlie Reen, but got the equalizer on M.K. Charnley’s second-half penalty kick in a 1-1 tie. It was the second overtime game of the season between the 6-3-1 Eagles, who preserved their unbeaten D-II record, and the 7-2-1 Yellowjackets. Goalie Ashlie Fay stopped eight shots for the Eagles,  and Kayleigh Reid made five saves for Milton.
In this coming Wednesday’s game in Bristol vs. Vergennes, the Eagles will join hands with the National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR) to participate in the Play4theCure fundraising campaign. Mount Abe players will wear pink arm bands and/or sweat bands to support the cause. A donation bucket will be passed around collecting general donations and all proceeds will be donated to NFCR. Proceeds from the day’s 50/50 raffle will also be donated to NFCR. The game starts at 4 p.m.
Host Missisquoi outlasted Middlebury, 1-0, in an even battle. The T-Birds’ Mikayla Merrill scored the game-winner with 17 minutes to go. Tiger goalie Molly Campbell made nine saves, and MVU’s Jenne Hull stopped 10 shots as the 2-7 Tigers developed chances.
Mill River, D-II’s first-place team, defeated host OV on Thursday, 8-1. OV goalie Nora Enright, still filling in for ailing starter Cortney Poljacik, stopped eight shots. Taylor Aines scored for the 1-9 Otters, snapping their four-game streak without a goal. MRU improved to 9-1.
