County field hockey teams see mixed results last week

ADDISON COUNTY — The Otter Valley, Middlebury and Mount Abraham union high school field hockey teams ran the table in games played in the latter half of last week.
On Thursday, the Otters blanked visiting Fair Haven, 3-0, despite Fair Haven goalie Jenna Alexander’s 15 saves. Jenna Elliott converted a Laura Roberts feed late in the first half to give OV the lead. In the second half, Kylee Bissette scored off another Roberts assist, and Maia Edmunds set up Allison Lowell. OV earned 11 penalty corners to none for the Slaters, and held the Slaters to one shot on goalie Myliah McDonough.
On Saturday, Lowell scored twice, once with 19 seconds to go, as OV edged visiting Hartford, 2-1. Lowell scored early on a cross from Amy Jones, but Hartford’s Taylor Wilson knotted the score soon afterward. In the final minute, Lowell took a pass deep in the circle from Elliot and flipped the ball home over sprawling Hartford goalie Rachel Loseby (five saves).
McDonough stopped four shots as OV improved to 2-1, and Coach Stacey Edmunds-Brickell credited the work of Roberts, Maia Edmunds and Jones at midfield.
The Tigers edged visiting Hartford, 1-0, on Thursday, getting the decisive strike from Lauren Bartlett midway through second half. Makayla Foster set up the score, and goalie Baily Ryan worked a 10-save shutout as MUHS improved to 1-0-1. Loseby was credited with 22 saves for the 0-2 Hurricanes.
On Saturday, the Eagles improved to 2-0 by edging host U-32, 1-0. Bailey Sherwin converted a Hannah Wahl assist for the decisive goal, her third in two games, and Danielle Morse backstopped the win with eight saves. The Raiders dropped to 1-1 despite seven saves from their goalie, Bailee Hudson.
