The Tiger girls topped host BFA-St. Albans 11-3, as seven MUHS players found the net. Leading the way were Satchel McLaughlin with three goals, Andi Boe with two goals and two assists, and Isabel Rosenberg with two tallies. Goalie Raven Payne stopped nine shots for MUHS, and the Comets’ Cameryne Hemingway made 10 saves. The Tigers improved to 6-0.
Visiting South Burlington edged the MUHS boys, 12-10. The Tiger boys had won their two previous games by two goals before falling short by that margin on Tuesday.
Rebel Calvin Hultgren scored five goals to lead the visitors, and SB goalie Ryan Hockenbury stopped nine shots.
Jake Peluso scored four goals for the Tigers, and Jack Donahue netted three goals and set one up. Goalie Cam Devlin made 10 saves.
