Boys’ soccer: Tigers, VUHS break through
ADDISON COUNTY — The Middlebury and Vergennes Union High School boys’ soccer teams posted their first wins late last week, but Mount Abraham came up just short. Otter Valley was idle.
On Thursday the Tigers broke into the win column by blanking host Colchester, 3-0. Freshman goalie Lucas Palcsik made seven saves to earn his first varsity shutout, and Eben Jackson, Owen Connelly and Tucker Moulton found the net for the Tigers. Two goalies combined for 11 saves for the 0-2 Lakers.
On Saturday the Tigers got goals from Frank Wolff and Andy Giorgio and two saves from Palcsik in a 2-0 win over visiting Spaulding. MUHS moved to 2-1 despite 10 saves from Tide goalie Parker Spaulding.
On Thursday the Commodores erupted on offense to take down host Fair Haven, 6-3. Ezekiel Palmer netted a hat trick, and Adam Sausville, Aiden Gebo and Gabriel Kadric added a goal apiece. Goalie Cameron McLaughlin made six saves as VUHS improved to 1-2.
On Saturday the Eagles carried play at Missisquoi, but the T-Birds’ Mitchell Bourdeau scored the game’s only goal and MVU goalie Kyle Gilbert (nine saves) made it stand up. Goalie Ethan DeWitt made six saves for the 0-1-1 Eagles.
