Otter boys’ basketball squad wins

ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school basketball action earlier this week, the Otter Valley boys won on the road and the Middlebury boys lost at home, but Tuesday’s bad weather wiped out the rest of the slate, including games for the Vergennes boys and girls, MUHS boys, and Mount Abraham boys.
Tuesday’s VUHS girls’ game at Montpelier was postponed until Dec. 29, while the VUHS boys’ game at BFA-Fairfax was moved to Wednesday at VUHS, weather permitting.
The Tiger boys’ home game vs. Burr & Burton and the Eagle boys’ home game vs. Randolph were postponed, with no make-up dates immediately set.
The Mount Abe girls hosted OV on Monday; see story on Page 1B.
On Monday, the Otters spotted host Poultney a 16-14 first-quarter lead, but roared back for a 59-39 win.
The Otters went to a press and took charge with a 14-1 run in the second quarter. When Poultney cut OV’s lead to 10 in the fourth, the Otters responded with a 14-2 spurt. OV held Poultney to a combined 11 points in the middle periods.
John Winslow led OV with 17 points, and Kai Norwood andConnor Gallipo added 12 apiece. In all, 10 Otters recorded points as they evened their record at 1-1. Sam White scored 26 for Poultney. OV plays at Mount St. Joseph on Saturday in a rematch of this past winter’s first-round Division II playoff game, won by the Mounties.
Also on Monday, visiting Mill River bolted to a 38-11 halftime lead on the way to a 57-33 victory over the MUHS girls. Four Minutemen scored at least eight points as their team improved to 1-1. MRU will visit VUHS on Friday.
Keagan Dunbar led the 0-2 Tigers on Monday with 16 points.
MUHS will host Burr & Burton on Friday.
