In girls’ soccer: MUHS tallies a win, other teams fall

ADDISON COUNTY — In local girls’ soccer action late last week, only Middlebury came out on top, as Mount Abraham was upset at home, Vergennes lost a close contest, and Otter Valley came up short against a top Division II team.
On Saturday, the Tigers had to work overtime to defeat visiting Missisquoi, 1-0. Hannah Lawrence scored the game-winner two minutes into OT, with an assist from Claire Armstrong. Molly Campbell (no saves in the first half or in overtime) and Riley Fenster shared the shutout in the Tiger goal.
At 8-1-1, the Tigers are on top of the Division II standings, with tough games vs. Mount Abraham, Milton, Vergennes and Rice left.
Visiting Milton (5-5) rallied from a first-half deficit on Friday to snap Mount Abe’s seven-game winning streak, 2-1. Juniper Nardiello-Smith gave the 7-3 Eagles the lead, but Milton equalized on a free kick before the half and took the lead early in the second. Those goals snapped a six-game shutout streak for keeper Zoe Cassels-Brown (seven saves on Friday) and the Eagle defense.
The loss was also the first for the Eagles to a D-II team, but their 5-1 Lake Division record kept them a half-game ahead in the league of MUHS and Rice, both 4-1-1.
On Friday, visiting Rice (4-5-1 overall) edged the Commodores, 2-1, when Stephanie Langlais scored with 10 minutes to go. Charlotte Haigis scored for the Commodores (3-7), who will play at Mount Abe on Wednesday and Milton on Friday.
On Saturday, visiting Woodstock improved to 8-1 by topping the Otters, 6-1. Lexi Hedding scored for OV, and Nora Enright stopped eight shots in goal as the Otters dropped to 0-9.
