Commodore girls’ lax comes close
VERGENNES — The Vergennes-Mount Abraham collective girls’ lacrosse team dropped a pair of home games earlier this week to fall to 0-3, but the second-year varsity program came up just short of its second-ever win in one of the contests.
Host Hartford on Monday dealt the Commodores a 13-7 setback. In that game Jalen Cook led the Commodores with two goals and a dozen ground balls, and Erin Lawrence, Norah Deming, Hannah Kelly, Sydney Weber and Siobhan Eagan added a goal apiece. VUHS goalie Ashley Tierney made 12 saves, while the Hurricane goalie stopped five shots.
On Tuesday the Commodores took visiting Stowe into overtime before falling, 11-10. Tyler Sherwin’s five goals and three assists sparked the Raiders, who received 11 saves from their goalie.
Deming (four goals, three assists) and Cook (three goals, three assists, 13 ground balls) led the Commodores. Weber, Lawrence and Marley Keith added a goal apiece, and Tierney stopped 18 shots.
