Field Hockey: Eagles, Otters win; Tigers tough but fall to Essex, 1-0
ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school field hockey play in the latter half of last week, Mount Abraham stretched a winning streak, Middlebury gave undefeated Essex a battle in a loss, and Otter Valley posted two tight wins against Marble Valley League rivals.
MUHS also hosted Mount Abe on Friday; see story.
On Wednesday, the Eagles edged visiting Mount Mansfield, 2-1, to win their third straight and edge over .500 at 6-5 heading into their game at MUHS. Ellie Gevry snapped a 1-1 tie late in the second half to give Mount Abe the win. Bailey Sherwin also scored for Mount Abe, and Kennady Roy andJordee Lathrop picked up assists. Both goalies, the Eagles’ Danielle Morse and Julia Preston for MMU (3-7-2), stopped five shots.
On Wednesday, host Essex got a first-half goal from Kathleen Young and made it stand up for a 1-0 win over the Tigers. The defending Division I Hornets improved to 10-0-1. It was the first game Essex had won at home this fall by fewer than two goals. Essex goalies Maria Grant and Mady Corkum combined for seven saves, while Tiger goalie Baily Ryan stopped 15 shots. MUHS headed into Friday with a 5-4-2 record.
On Thursday, the Otters edged visiting D-I rival Rutland, 2-1. Rutland scored first, but Allison Lowell, from Courtney Bushey, evened the score before the half. Lowell set up Kylee Bissette’s game-winner early in the second half, and OV held on, as goalie Myliah McDonough made five saves, two of which Coach Stacey Edmunds-Brickell called spectacular, and defenders Marissa Colburn andMeghan Hallett played well. RHS goalie Laura Hewitt made three saves.
On Saturday, OV nipped host Woodstock, 3-2, to improve to 10-2 and remain in the hunt for a top-four D-II seed. In the first half, the Wasps twice took one-goal leads, but each time an Otter — Jenna Elliot (from Lowell) and Bissette (from Bushey) — knotted the score. OV tallied what Edmunds-Brickell called a picture-perfect goal in the second half: Lowell finished from Elliot after the ball transitioned seamlessly up the field. McDonough made three saves, as did Woodstock’s Molly Henne.
