Burr & Burton tops Otter field hockey
MANCHESTER CENTER — Host Burr & Burton topped the Otter Valley Union High School field hockey team on Thursday, 4-2, as the Bulldogs continued their climb up the Division II standings with their fifth straight win.
The result left both teams at 6-3, but the Bulldogs passed the Otters in the point standings to move into second place behind No. 1 Mount Abraham (6-0-2). As of Thursday Brattleboro (4-2-1) was in third, followed by OV in fourth and Woodstock (5-2-2) in fifth in a close race.
On Thursday OV took the lead two minutes into the game with a goal from Morgan LaPorte set up by Sophie Markowski. BBA’s Brianna Mayne tied the game with 4:52 remaining in the first half. Alia Edmunds gave the Otters a second lead 22 seconds later, and it was 2-1 at the half.
BBA’s Julie Fillion evened the score two minutes into the second half and the score stayed deadlocked until the late going, when Fillion and Charleigh Carthy each scored in the final 3:07.
Coach Stacey Edmunds said the Otters played well considering many of the team’s younger players were unfamiliar with the Bulldogs’ turf surface. OV goalie Elinor Ross made 22 saves, while BBA’s Hannah Caven stopped 10 shots.
