In boys’ lacrosse: MUHS and VUHS both notch wins

ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school boys’ lacrosse action late last week, Middlebury and Vergennes posted wins, while Mount Abraham and Otter Valley came up short vs. Division I competition.
The Vermont Principals’ Association was set to release playoff pairings on Monday morning.
In D-I action, the Tigers knocked off visiting Colchester on Wednesday, 11-8, as senior attacker Jack Hounchell poured in five goals. Jack Donahue added two goals and two assists, and Andrew Gleason scored twice. Goalie Eli Miller made four saves.
The Tigers hosted winless D-II Spaulding on Saturday, and MUHS prevailed, 18-1.
A win in that game evened the Tigers record at 8-8 heading into the postseason. MUHS could host a first-round game this Tuesday or Wednesday depending on results elsewhere, but would face a top-four seed in a quarterfinal match regardless.
VUHS took a 10-3 victory over visiting Montpelier on Thursday. Brett Woods (three goals), Tyler Crowningshield (two goals, two assists) and Max Ratti-Bicknell (two goals) led the attack, and Tyler Kepes, Jeb Hodsden and Alex Krumrie tossed in a goal apiece. VUHS goalie Broc Clark stopped four shots, a total matched by Solon goalie Brett Bova.
Despite a 17-9 defeat at host Stowe on Friday, the Thursday win clinched the No. 3 seed in D-III for the Commodores. As VUHS finishes at 8-6, Mount Abe, which lost a game that will not be made up vs. the 1-10 Solons, finished at 7-6.
Mount Abe ended at 7-6 because D-I title contender Rice (11-2) dealt the Eagles a 16-9 home setback on Thursday.
Lucas Richter led Mount Abe with four goals and an assist, Owein LaBarr and Dylan Weaver supplied two goals and an assist each, and Charlie Meyer added a goal and two assists. Eagle goalie Tucker Paradee made seven saves, two more than Rice goalie Dylan Marchand.
On Wednesday, visiting D-I Woodstock toppled the Otters, 17-3. Keenan Pratt scored twice for OV, and Colton Leno added a goal.
The Otters (4-11) lost, 27-1, to D-I’s fourth-place team, Burr & Burton, on Friday. They are locked into the No. 5 seed in D-IV and will probably visit Mount Abe in the first round of the playoffs.
