OV boys’ soccer improves record this season
FAIR HAVEN — The Otter Valley Union High School boys’ soccer team wrapped up its regular season on Wednesday with a 4-2 victory at Fair Haven.
The Otters improved to 5-8-1, a two-win improvement over the program’s 2015 mark and a three-win gain over 2014.
OV will apparently enter the Division II postseason as the No. 11 seed, and a first-round matchup with Hartford (8-4-2) is possible. The Vermont Principals’ Association will release playoff pairings on Monday morning.
OV Coach Dick Williams said the Otters controlled much of Wednesday’s game vs. the 0-13 Slaters.
“We had the bulk of the possession by far in both halves,” he said.
OV took the lead with first-half goals by Sawyer Pierpont, assisted by Josh Letourneau, and Ethan Sulik-Doty.
Seth Hoenes drew Fair Haven within one nine minutes into the second half, but the Otters took charge again and pulled away with two Letourneau goals, both set up by Maxwell Williams, in the 70th and 77th minutes.
Kirkland Hawley tacked on a late goal for the Slaters.
