Middlebury girls lax slides before the playoffs
BURLINGTON — The Middlebury Union High School girls’ lacrosse team lost twice last week and concluded its regular season with an 8-5 record.
The Vermont Principals’ Association was set to release playoff pairings on Monday morning. It appears that the Tigers will earn the No. 6 seed in Division I and will host a first-round game on Tuesday or Wednesday. A quarterfinal matchup on the road this coming weekend would then be next, possibly vs. No. 3 Rice (11-3).
On this past Wednesday, visiting South Burlington topped MUHS, 10-7, in the Tigers’ senior game. Rebel Casey Johnson scored four times and goalie Danielle Boucher made 11 saves for the 11-5 Rebels. Seven Tigers scored, among them Emily Kiernan and Katie Holmes, who also added assists. MUHS goalie Baily Ryan stopped nine shots.
On Saturday, host Burlington improved to 13-2 and earned the No. 2 seed by besting the Tigers, 13-8. Burlington’s Madison Feeney, Casey O’Neill and Naomi Musman all scored four times, and Seahorse goalie Ajla Medic stopped seven shots.
For the Tigers, Emma Best scored three goals, Julia Rosenberg and Satchel McLaughlin added two goals apiece, and Ryan made 13 saves.
