Boys’ soccer wrap: Eagles, Commodores victorious

ADDISON COUNTY — In the final regular season games for local high school boys’ soccer teams, Mount Abraham defeated Middlebury, but lost its perfect season on Saturday; Vergennes won on the road; and Otter Valley dropped a home game.
The Commodores also hosted the Tigers on Saturday; see story.
The Vermont Principals’ Association will release Division II pairings on Monday. The Eagles had already clinched the top seed, while VUHS and OV will open on the road. MUHS (1-12-1) will not earn a D-I berth.
On Wednesday, the Eagles edged the Tigers, 2-1, to clinch the Lake Division title. After a scoreless first half. Sawyer Kamman tallied from Aiden White-Pifer, and Theo Weaver added an unassisted score. Drew Barnicle drew the Tigers within a goal in the late going. Goalie Ira Fisher stopped two shots for Mount Abe, while Bo Tran made seven saves for the Tigers, who fell to 1-12 heading into their game at VUHS.
On Saturday, host Rice edged the Eagles, 1-0 on a first-half Clay Scott header. The Green Knights finished at 8-5-1 and apparently earned the No. 4 seed, thus becoming a possible semifinal foe for the No. 1 Eagles, who fell to 13-1 with the setback. Fisher stopped eight shots for Mount Abe, while Leland Gazo made six saves for Rice.
On Wednesday, the Commodores got a goal from Jake Dombek in each half as they defeated host Missisquoi, 2-0. Goalie Dylan Raymond earned the shutout with six saves as VUHS moved to 4-8-1 heading into Saturday. Eamon Murphy made nine saves for the 3-10 T-Birds.
On Friday, Twin Valley completed its 14-0 regular season with a 3-0 victory over the host Otters, who wrapped up at 5-9. Shane Quenneville stopped 17 shots against TV, which allowed only one goal all fall. OV appears to be the No. 14 seed in D-II and could travel to face No. 3 Green Mountain Valley (6-2-2) in the first round.
