MUHS girls’ lacrosse cruises to 3-0 start

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School girls’ lacrosse team opened its season with three wins last week, two on the road and one in Middlebury.
In their season opener on April 5, the Tigers outscored host Burr & Burton, 16-10. That game was moved to Manchester in order to take advantage of Burr & Burton’s turf field. The Tigers will host the Bulldogs on May 24.
Andi Boe led the Tiger attack with four goals and three assist, and Isabel Rosenberg and Satchel McLaughlin tossed in four goals apiece. Ella Nagy-Benson chipped in two scores, Ada Anderson scored once and set up a goal, and Anna Hodson added one goal. Tiger goalie Raven Payne stopped seven shots.
Jessie Forstman (four goals), Lydia Morgantini (three goals) and Shayla Heekini (two goals, two assists) supplied almost all of the Bulldog offense. Bulldog goalie Miranda Cully made 12 saves.
On this past Saturday, the Tigers pummeled visiting Woodstock, 18-3, as McLaughlin (five goals, three assists) and Rosenberg (four goals, four assists) led the way.
Emily Laframboise scored three times, and Boe (two goals, two assists), Nagy-Benson (two goals, one assist) and Hodson (two goals) rounded out the attack. Payne made four saves, and Britany Polyoak made six stops for the 0-1 Wasps. Erika Gebhardt scored twice for Woodstock. That game was played on Middlebury College’s Kohn Field after being moved from Woodstock due to field conditions.
On Monday, seven Tigers scored and Payne made 14 saves in a 9-4 win at Rutland. The game was moved to the Raiders’ turf field because the Tigers’ Fucile Field was not ready for play.
Rosenberg and Laframboise scored two goals apiece to pace MUHS, and Boe, Anderson, McLaughlin, Mikayla Robinson and Tulley Hescock added a single marker apiece.
Alyssa Sabotka and Maggie Schillinger each scored twice for the 0-1 Raiders, and goalies Ali Merrit and Kaitlin Rowe each made four saves.
The Tigers are scheduled to play at Champlain Valley on Friday afternoon and at Rice on Saturday morning.
