OV boys’ soccer earns a tie and a win on the road
BRANDON — The Otter Valley Union High School boys’ soccer team picked up a home tie and a road win in action in the latter half of last week.
On Wednesday the Otters and visiting Mill River battled to a 2-2 deadlock. Josh Letourneau tallied both the OV goals, with assists going to Maxwell Williams and Justin Tremblay. One of the MRU goals deflected in off an OV defender. Coach Dick Williams said Reilly Shannon played well for OV, which got a combined seven saves from goalies Nate Claessens and Clay Hays. Mill River keeper Austin MacMurray stopped 15 shots.
On Saturday, OV edged host Springfield, 1-0, as Letourneau converted a Williams assist four minutes into the game. Hays worked a four-save shutout as the Otters improved to 2-4-1 and snapped a five-game winless streak.
