In high school lax: Tigers win, Eagles fall

ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school lacrosse on this past Wednesday and Thursday, the Middlebury boys posted the only win, as the Mount Abraham/Vergennes girls’ and boys’ teams dropped road contests.
Games held on Friday and Saturday were played after the early holiday deadline for this edition of the Independent.
The Vermont Principals’ Association will release playoff pairings on Monday morning, and first-round games will begin on Tuesday and Wednesday.
On Wednesday the Tiger boys moved back to .500 by trouncing host Colchester, 14-2. Jake Peluso paced the offense with four goals and three assists. Jack Donahue (two goals, assist), Trey Kaufmann (goal, two assists) and Kolby Farnsworth and Fyn Fernandez (goal and assist apiece) also had multi-point games as the Tigers moved to 7-7.
Tiger goalie Cam Devlin stopped six shots, and Camden LeClair made 11 saves for the Lakers.
The Tigers were set to host Spaulding on Saturday as they sought to finish the regular season with a winning record. They are in line to host a first-round playoff game, possibly against Mount Anthony, but will hit the road in the quarterfinal round, possibly against undefeated South Burlington.
The Tigers’ Wednesday game vs. Burr and Burton was canceled. The 14-0 Tigers were looking to nail down the top seed in Division I with a win over 8-5 Mount Mansfield at home on Friday.
MUHS will receive a first-round bye in the tournament. Potential quarterfinal foes include Rutland and Champlain Valley.
On Thursday host Lamoille defeated the Commodores, 18-10, in a more competitive match than the teams’ first meeting. But VUHS could not contain Lancer Kelsey Aiken, who racked up 11 goals. Ashley Turner tossed in six for VUHS.
The Commodores were seeking their first win at U-32 on Saturday. The Raiders won a close game at VUHS in the first matchup between the teams.
On Thursday, host Stowe defeated the Eagles, 14-4. Details on that game were not available before deadline. The D-III Eagles carried a 4-8 record into a tough contest at D-II Rice on Friday.
