Boys’ hoop: Tigers, Eagles out; Otters host

ADDISON COUNTY — As the high school boys’ basketball playoffs got under way this week, on Tuesday high seeds eliminated Middlebury and Mount Abraham, while Otter Valley and Vergennes were set to play on Wednesday after the deadline for this edition of the Independent.
The 10-10 Otters, seeded No. 8 in Division II, were ready to host No. 9 Milton (9-11).
If the Otters prevailed, they will face the winner of another Wednesday first-round game that saw No. 16 Vergennes (3-17) visit No. 1 Mill River (18-2). The Commodores nearly upset the Minutemen this winter, losing a late led in a 53-47 home loss.
During the season the Otters won at VUHS, 74-69, but lost twice to MRU, 45-35 and 64-48.
Wednesday’s winners will meet in the higher seed’s gym at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
On Tuesday in D-I, No. 16 MUHS hung with No. 1 Champlain Valley for a quarter, trailing by just 18-14 after eight minutes. But the 20-1 Redhawks took control from there and pulled away for an 80-41 win over the 5-16 Tigers; four Redhawks scored between nine and 14 points.
Tigers J.D. Goettelmann and Trey Kaufmann scored 10 points, apiece and Cody Pomainville added nine for MUHS.
On Tuesday in D-II, undefeated No. 2 Enosburg took charge early vs. No. 15 Mount Abe as standout Calvin Carter scored 19 of his 32 points in the first quarter to help the Hornets to a 47-14 halftime lead in their 70-48 victory. 
Jackson Counter tossed in 19 to lead the 5-16 Eagles.
