Otter Valley field hockey pins down No. 2 seed
BENNINGTON — The Otter Valley Union High School field hockey team earned a 2-0 win at Division I Mount Anthony on Tuesday that clinched for the Otters the No. 2 seed in the upcoming D-II playoffs and preserved their unbeaten record against D-I competition.
The Otters improved to 9-1-3 overall and 3-0-2 vs. D-I foes with one game left in their regular season schedule, at home vs. D-I Rutland on Thursday.
OV cannot be caught for second place in D-II, and after first-place U-32 lost, 8-2, to D-I Rice on Tuesday, the Otters could also take over first place if U-32 loses again this week.
The Vermont Principals’ Association will announce playoff pairings on Monday.
