In boys’ hoop: MUHS, VUHS, OV lose
ADDISON COUNTY — High school boys’ basketball play proved to be tough sledding for local teams late last week, as Middlebury lost at home and Vergennes and Otter Valley dropped road games.
Mount Abraham was idle and will visit VUHS on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
On Saturday, MUHS hung within range of undefeated Burr & Burton until the fourth quarter, when the 10-0 Bulldogs pulled away for a 52-37 victory. Sam Usilton scored nine and Sam Holmes added seven for the Tigers, who bumped back to 4-4.
On Thursday, undefeated host Twin Valley (9-0) slowly pulled away in the second half to defeat the Otters, 59-51. OV, which trailed by just one at the break, was led by 17 points from John Winslow.
On Saturday, OV led at host Mill River for much of the first half, but the 6-4 Minutemen rallied past the Otters, 60-54, with four players in double figures. Winslow paced the 2-7 Otters with 21, and Connor Gallipo added 11. OV has lost six straight, but only one by more than eight points and one in overtime.
VUHS AT FAIR HAVEN
On Friday, host Fair Haven moved to 4-4 with a 62-44 victory over the Commodores. Alex Fontaine scored 19 points to pace the Slaters.
The Commodores dropped to 3-7 heading into their Tuesday home game vs. Mount Abe.
