MUHS field hockey splits games; now 2-1

SOUTH BURLINGTON — The Middlebury Union High School field hockey team split two recent road games, and stands at 2-1. Next up for the Tigers is their home opener this coming Wednesday vs. Burlington.
Last Friday, the Tigers edged host Hartford, 2-1, as Mikayla Humiston scored a pair of goals, both in the first half. The first came at 8:35, and the second came 4:33 before the break, with an assist from Makayla Foster.
Hartford’s Paige Kehoe scored at 14:20 in the second to half the lead, but MUHS Coach Megan Sears said good work from the Tiger defense limited the Hurricanes — who had scored eight times in an opening win vs. Brattleboro — to five shots on goal.
In the Tiger goal, Katie Billings stopped the only shot she saw in the first half, and in the second half Sophia Chicoine stopped three of the four shots she faced. Hartford goalie Rachel Loseby made nine saves.
On Tuesday, host Rice, the defending Division II champion and D-I newcomer, moved to 3-0 by edging the Tigers, 3-2. Sierra Combs scored twice and set up the other Rice goal, and Rice goalie Emily Rachek stopped six shots.
For the Tigers, Humiston scored from Foster, and Lauren Bartlett scored with a helper from Calista Carl. Billings made eight saves in goal.
