Girls’ hockey lands in top spot
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School girls’ hockey team picked up a pair of wins last week, which, coupled with a loss by Burr & Burton, moved the Tigers into first place in Division II with a 12-3 record.
On Wednesday, the Tigers downed host Hartford, 6-1, as senior Timi Carone poured in four goals and set up one of sister Angela Carone’s two strikes. Angela Carone also picked up an assist, and goalie Baily Ryan stopped 15 shots. The Tigers outshot the 5-7 Hurricanes by 39-16.
On Friday, the Tigers blanked visiting U-32, as Timi Carone picked up two more goals and Angela Carone and Mikayla Humiston recorded a goal and an assist apiece. The Tigers outshot the 4-11-1 Raiders, 31-2, and Ryan worked a two-save shutout.
The Tigers have tough challenges among the five regular season games that remain on their schedule, starting with a date at D-I South Burlington/Champlain Valley (7-6-1) on Wednesday. Before the playoffs open, they also will face both Northfield and Burr & Burton, who are tied for second place behind the Tigers and each own victories over MUHS, as those three teams jockey for the top three D-I seeds.
