ADDISON COUNTY — Vergennes defeated rival Mount Abraham to highlight local boys’ basketball play in the latter half of last week. In other games, Middlebury kept on winning, Otter Valley split two games, and the Eagles fell on the road.
On Friday, host VUHS defeated the Eagles, 59-38: Adam Gill (16 points) and Wesley Miedema (13) did the most offensive damage for the Commodores. VUHS remained unbeaten in the Lake Division and improved to 12-1 heading into a Tuesday showdown at MUHS, which is also undefeated in the league.
Ty Combs scored 13 for the Eagles, who remained winless despite one of their better efforts of the winter.
On Wednesday, host Milton defeated Mount Abe, 74-23. Combs led the Eagles with 13 points.
The 10-4 Tigers won two Lake Division road games late last week to keep pace with VUHS in Lake Division play. The winner of Tuesday’s game at MUHS between the two teams will assume first place in the league. MUHS has won seven times in eight outings and are undefeated against Division II foes.

Ritter chipped in 11, while Robinson (8 points, 12 rebounds, 4 steals), Jon Fitzcharles (8 points, 6 rebounds), Trey Kaufmann (6 points, 5 rebounds) and Connor Quinn (6 points, 7 rebounds, 4 steals) also contributed.
On Wednesday, visiting Woodstock (13-0) jumped to a 10-0 lead over the Otters and led at the half, 37-23, on the way to a 65-46 victory. Wasp standout Connor Fegard hit five three-pointers and finished with 28 points to lead his team. John Winslow scored 11 for OV, while Connor Gallipo andCollin Eugair tossed in six each.
