In lacrosse, Tiger, VUHS girls prevail; Eagles boys fall

ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school lacrosse play earlier this week the Middlebury and Vergennes-Mount Abraham girls picked up wins, while the Mount Abraham-Vergennes boys came up short despite a strong effort.
On Monday the Commodores rolled to the most one-sided win in the program’s two-year history, 15-7 over visiting Harwood. Jalen Cook (six goals, an assist and 10 ground balls), Norah Deming (three goals, three assists) and Hannah Kelly (two goals, an assist, seven ground balls) led the way.
Erin Lawrence scored twice, Sophie Davis chipped in a goal and an assist, and Bekah Duprey added a goal. Goalie Ashley Tierney stopped four shots, while Harwood goalie Kaylee Cameron made nine saves.
On Tuesday host  Stowe stopped the Commodores’ modest two-game winning streak, 13-4. Kelly scored twice for VUHS, Cook and Deming added a goal each, and Tierney made 14 saves as the Commodores dropped to 3-10. They conclude the regular season by visiting Milton on Thursday.
On Monday the Tiger girls topped visiting St. Albans, 9-6, as Satchel McLaughlin andAda Anderson tossed in three goals apiece. Anna Hodson scored twice, while Keagan Dunbar scored once and picked up seven ground balls. MUHS goalie Raven Payne made seven saves as the Tigers improved to 9-3 and moved into fourth place in Division I by topping the 6-5 Comets.
The Tigers were set to host Mount Mansfield on Wednesday and will host Rice on Friday; wins in both could move them at least into third place.
On Monday host Milton got past the Eagles, 9-7, despite three goals and an assist from Lucas Livingston, a strong offensive game from Neo Weaver, and 13 saves from goalie Grady Brokaw. Milton, which earlier had won in Bristol, 10-2, needed 26 saves from goalie Chris Lefebvre to get past the 0-8-1 Eagles in the rematch.
The 0-8-1 Eagles close by hosting Lamoille on Thursday and visiting U-32 on Saturday.
