In local girls’ soccer: Eagles prevail, Commodores tie

ADDISON COUNTY — In area high school girls’ soccer action earlier this week, Mount Abraham broke through for its first win, Otter Valley lost on the road, and Vergennes settled for a tie away from home. Middlebury hosted Mill River on Tuesday (see story on Page 1B).
Local boys’ soccer teams played on Wednesday after the deadline for this edition of the Independent.
The Eagle girls blanked visiting BFA-Fairfax, 4-0, allowing only one shot on goal on keeper Genysis Berube in the process.
The Mount Abe offense produced two goals in each half. Emma Carter scored twice, Abby Mansfield notched a goal and two assists, Adeline Crosthwait found the net once, and Casey Ober and Grace Norman each added assists for Mount Abe (1-2). Fairfax goalie Briana Mossey made 11 saves.
On Saturday, Proctor defeated the Otters, 4-0, in the final of Black River’s annual tournament. OV kept Proctor off the board in the first half, but the Phantoms broke through in the second half despite 20 saves from OV goalkeeper Gabby Poalino. Proctor’s Hannah Anderson had a hat trick.
On Tuesday, host Arlington also defeated OV, 4-0, by scoring four times after the intermission. OV Coach Rick Hedding credited Jillian Flanders, Molly McGee and Leah Pinkowski with good defense in the opening session.
On Monday, the Commodores settled for a 1-1 tie at Fair Haven despite outshooting the Slaters, 12-2. One of the Fair Haven shots was a successful first-half penalty kick that gave the Slaters the lead. Emily Rooney equalized for VUHS (1-1-1) in the second half, and Commodore goalie Anya Sonwaldt stopped the only other shot the VUHS defense allowed, a long direct kick.
