High school teams come up short in field hockey

ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school field hockey play between Sept. 20 and 26, Mount Abraham earned a tie, but Otter Valley and Middlebury came up short.
On Monday the Eagles and visiting Mount Mansfield settled for a 2-2 tie in which both goalies — Mount Abe’s Chessley Jackman and MMU’s Amelia Sanborn — stopped penalty strokes. Jackman finished with 15 saves for the 3-2-2 Eagles and Sanborn stopped 14 shots.
Abby Perlee scored with a minute left in regulation to forge the tie, and Jalen Cook scored the other Eagle goal. Cougar standout Perry Willett tallied twice for MMU (4-2-1).
On Sept. 20 host St. Johnsbury blanked OV, 4-0. Tatum Loggere scored twice for St. J. and goalie Michaela Roy stopped four shots. Ellie Ross made eight saves for OV, which dropped to 3-2-1.
The Otters’ Saturday home game vs. Springfield was postponed due to what Otter Valley Athletic Director Steven Keith called a “numbers issue” for Springfield. No makeup date was immediately set.
On Saturday visiting Mount Mansfield doubled up the Tigers, 4-2, as Willett scored three times and two MMU goalies combined for five saves. Phoebe Smith and Maeve Hammel scored for the Tigers, and goalie Bridget Audet stopped seven shots.
On Monday host South Burlington remained unbeaten with a 7-0 victory over the Tigers. The Wolves erupted in the second half after leading by 1-0 at the break. Audet made 10 saves for the 0-6 Tigers.
