MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ hockey team won twice last week, once on the road vs. first-place Woodstock, as the Tigers improved to 8-4-2 and solidified their hold on second place in Division II.
On Wednesday, the Tigers jumped on top of Woodstock, 2-0, in the first period and held on for a 4-2 victory behind 24 saves from goalie Doug DeLorenzo. The Wasps dipped to 12-3 with the setback.
Colton Leno, from Tyler Crowningshield and Morgan Huestis, and Seamus Eagan, from Andrew Gleason and Justin Stone, put the Tigers on top after one period.
