Girls’ Soccer: Vergennes edges visiting Tigers 1-0

VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union High School girls’ soccer team got a late goal from Tea Kiefer on Friday to edge visiting Middlebury, 1-0, and apparently earn the No. 8 seed in Division II.
If that seed was made official when the Vermont Principals Association announced playoff pairings early on Monday, the 6-7 Commodores will host a playoff game on Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon, possibly vs. Springfield (6-7-1).
The Tigers finished 2-12 and unofficially made it into the playoffs as the No. 15 seed. They will probably face No. 2 Lake Region (12-2) on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Keifer’s goal, which came with 11 minutes left, was assisted by Ruby Dombek on a serve from the flank. Dombek was seeing her first action since being injured in a collision at Middlebury on Oct. 7.
VUHS goalie K.C. Ambrose made four saves, including one on a penalty kick. The Tigers also missed the frame on another penalty kick. Tiger goalie Riley Fenster also recorded four stops.
