Boys’ hoop round up: Otters split, others lose

ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school boys’ basketball late last week Otter Valley split two games, while Middlebury and Vergennes each came up empty-handed on the road.
Mount Abraham hosted MUHS on Friday; see story.
On Wednesday rival Fair Haven ended the Otters’ three-game winning streak with a 60-52 victory at OV. Cam Coloutti tossed in 27 points for the Slaters, who later in the week defeated Mount St. Joseph to improve to 13-4 and take over first place in Division II. Josh Letourneau scored 22 for the Otters.
On Friday the Otters picked up a key road win at Mill River, 48-46, avenging an earlier defeat at MRU and moving into eighth place in D-II at 10-7. MRU dropped to 9-6. Dylan Mackie (seven points) hit a tie-breaking free throw with 10.5 seconds to go, and Letourneau (seven) added an insurance free throw with seconds left. Jack Adams (four treys) and Payson Williams each scored 12 for OV, and Sawyer Heath added eight in a game that was close throughout.
On Friday Vergennes (4-11) led for most of the game and saw two chances roll off the rim in the final seconds in a 49-47 loss at Missisquoi (2-14). Lance Bergmans led VUHS with 18 points, 10 rebounds and four assists, Luke Bergmans scored 10, and Ben Curtis hit two three-pointers.
On Saturday the Tigers lost in what was their second road game in two days, 49-38 at Colchester. The Lakers outscored the Tigers by 17-5 in the fourth quarter to pull out the win. Cody Pomainville paced the 5-12 Tigers with 18 points.
