In boys’ basketball: VUHS is he only local winner

ADDISON COUNTY — Vergennes bested host Mount Abraham to highlight area high school boys’ basketball play late last week. In other games, Fair Haven topped Otter Valley in a Marble Valley League showdown, and first-place St. Albans subdued Middlebury in a Lake Division contest.
The Commodores led for most of the way, but the Eagles hung close as VUHS prevailed, 58-51, on Friday in a packed Mount Abe gym.
VUHS led at the half, 24-21, and made 10 of 14 free throws in the fourth quarter to preserve the win. Adam Gill scored 15 of his game-high 21 points in the second half, and Dylan Bradford added 14 as the Commodores (2-13) made it a season sweep over the Eagles.
The Eagles struggled from the floor and the foul line, said Coach Martin Clark, but four players reached double figures: Chris Wood, 15;Coleman Russell andJackson Counter, 14 apiece; and Dustin Whitcomb, 10. Mount Abe dropped to 4-10.
Also on Friday, host Fair Haven pulled away in the second half for a 69-45 victory over OV. Darren Brown scored 13 of his 23 points in the third quarter and added 16 rebounds. Cam Colloutti chipped in 11 points as the Slaters moved to 9-4.
Otter Derek Aines scored 13 and Dylan Mackie added nine as OV fell to 9-7.
On Friday, St. Albans continued its march through the Lake Division with big games from Will Harvey (27 points and 11 rebounds) and Jens Ulrich-Verderber (13 points and 14 rebounds) in the Bobwhites’ 68-58 victory. BFA is 6-9, but undefeated vs. Lake foes.
Trey Kaufman led MUHS with 23 points, and J.D. Goettelmann added 10 as MUHS (3-12) lost for the second time in five outings.
