Soccer Wrap-up: Tigers blank Eagle boys; VUHS, OV claim wins

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury blanked Mount Abraham to highlight recent boys’ soccer play. In other action between Sept. 20 and 26 the Eagles dropped a road contest, Vergennes won twice, and Otter Valley earned a win and a tie.
Vergennes was set to visit MUHS on Tuesday, but that game was postponed due to excessive heat and humidity.  
At MUHS on Saturday the Tigers scored three times in the second half to prevail, 3-0. Tyler Giorgio scored the go-ahead goal and assisted a goal by Devon Kearns, and Camden Simpson created the final score with a late penalty kick.
Tiger goalie Santiago Fernandez saved a first-half penalty kick and finished with five saves as MUHS improved to 3-1-2. Goalie Ethan DeWitt stopped seven shots for the Eagles.
On Tuesday the Eagles fell to host Milton, 2-1, on a pair of Chance Rose goals, including a tiebreaker with 11 minutes to go. 
Owen Maille’s second-half penalty kick tied the score, and Dewitt made nine saves for the 4-3 Eagles. Goalie Jacob Whitcomb made four saves for Milton (4-2).
On Saturday, Josias Salomao scored the game-winner in the 73rd minute as the 4-2 Commodores edged visiting Missisquoi, 4-3, after the T-Birds had rallied to tie the game. Ezekiel Palmer led VUHS with three goals, one assisted by Salomao, and goalie Jeffrey Stearns stopped six shots. Kyle Gilbert made eight saves for MVU, which got three goals from Mitchell Bourdeau, including the equalizer in the 70th minute.
On Sept. 21 the Commodores edged Mill River, 2-1, as Palmer scored twice, including the tie-breaking goal in the 52nd minute from Salomao. Stearns stopped a half-dozen shots, and MRU’s Tyler Regula made eight saves.
On Sept. 22 the Otters cruised past visiting Proctor in their homecoming game, 9-0. Josh Letourneau (three goals), Maxwell Williams (two goals, three assists) and Justin Tremblay (two goals) led the attack. Sawyer Heath and Patrick McKeighan also found the net, and OV goalie Clay Hays made four saves, a total matched by Proctor keeper Jake Bartlett.
 On Tuesday the Otters (3-2-1) tied Springfield, 1-1, in the first round of Arlington’s four-team tournament. Details were not immediately available.
