Tiger football buries MAU; undefeated South Burlington up next

BENNINGTON — The Middlebury Union High School football team had little trouble with winless host Mount Anthony on Friday night, scoring four first-quarter touchdowns in 3:05 on the way to a 48-6 Division I victory.
The result sets up this coming Friday evening’s highly anticipated matchup in Middlebury between two 6-0 teams: the Tigers and South Burlington. The Rebels improved to 6-0 on Saturday by thumping Champlain Valley, 49-6, in a game that saw CVU sit many of its starters for disciplinary reasons. Game time at Doc Collins field is 7 p.m.
No other team in Division I has fewer than two losses: Essex and CVU (4-2) are tied for third, Rutland (3-2 overall, 3-2 in D-I) is in fifth, Hartford (3-2, 3-3 overall after being upset by St. Johnsbury on Saturday) is in sixth, and BFA-St. Albans (3-3, 3-3) is in seventh.
In the decisive first-quarter outburst this past Saturday, the Tigers got touchdown runs from Nick Felkl, Austin Robinson and Cullen Hathaway and a Sam Usilton fumble return for another score.
Matt Dunton ended up pacing the Tiger attack with 105 yards on eight carries and touchdown runs of 27 and 38 yards.
The Tigers did surrender Tyler Mattison’s 27-yard scoring run in the second quarter; it was the first touchdown run they have allowed this fall. Jacob Normyle led MAU with 15 carries for 67 yards.
