Boys’ lacrosse: VUHS tips OV in OT; Rebels nip Tigers

ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school boys’ lacrosse action earlier this week, Vergennes earned a dramatic, two-day Division II victory over Otter Valley, and South Burlington edged Middlebury in a battle of D-I heavyweights.
Lightning and rain forced Monday’s game in Bristol between Mount Abraham and U-32 to be postponed. It was rescheduled for May 26.
Mount Abe was set to play at Montpelier on Wednesday before hosting Burlington at 11 a.m. on Saturday.
On Monday, host VUHS and OV were locked in a 4-4 tie midway through the third quarter when officials suspended the game, which had already been delayed by rain, due to another downpour.
Play resumed on Tuesday, and the Commodores won in overtime, 7-6. Brett Woods scored the game-winner with 2:17 left to go in the extra session, with an assist from Tyler Kepes.
The Commodores improved to 6-4 and snapped a four-game skid with the victory. Tyler Crowningshield and Woods each scored twice for VUHS, and Tyrell Montani, Deighlin Lynes and Erik Eisenhower added a goal apiece. Kepes set up two scores, and Crowningshield and Aaron Gaines had an assist apiece. Goalie Broc Clark stopped a dozen shots for VUHS, which will visit U-32 on Friday.
Erik Sherman scored twice and Colton Leno had a goal and two assists to spark OV, and Keenan Pratt,Will Ross and Collin Eugair each scored a goal. Goalie Carson Leary stopped 15 shots for the 1-10 Otters, who lost for the third time by two goals or fewer.
Next up for the Otters is a Friday home game with Woodstock.
On Tuesday, visiting South Burlington avenged an earlier home loss to the Tigers with an 8-6 victory in a game played at Middlebury College’s Alumni Stadium.
Rebel Cam Nolting scored four times to lead his team’s attack, and goalie Mike Blauvelt made nine saves as the Rebels improved to 8-3.
Connor Quinn notched two goals and two assists for the Tigers, Bobby Ritter scored twice, and goalie Nathan Lalonde stopped 10 shots. The Tigers are next set to play at Spaulding on Saturday morning.
