Eagles top OV in girls’ hoop; OV also wins

ADDISON COUNTY — Host Mount Abraham defeated Otter Valley on Tuesday to highlight recent local high school girls’ basketball action. In other recent games OV defeated rival Proctor, and Vergennes dropped its opener on the road. Middlebury was idle, but will host the Otters on Thursday.
The Eagles got strong team defense and 28 points from Jalen Cook in defeating visiting OV, 53-30. Mount Abe allowed just 15 points in each half. Molly Murray added eight points for the Eagles, who improved to 1-1 heading into games this weekend’s annual Fair Haven tournament.
Livia Bernhardt led OV with six points. The 1-2 Otters have yet to score more than 33 points in a game against a tough early schedule. They will be looking to bounce back this Thursday at MUHS.
On Saturday the Otters broke into the win column by scoring the game’s final four points, all in the last minute, to knock off host Proctor, 33-29.
Bernhardt was fouled after rebounding a missed OV free throw and sank two free throws to give OV the lead. Proctor had two chances to tie before Alia Edmunds clinched the win by banking home a shot — again after an offensive rebound — as time wound down.
The 1-1 Phantoms had rallied from a 29-24 deficit to tie the game on one free throw by Allie Almond (who led Proctor with nine points) two by Rachel Stuhlmueller, and a steal and layup by Maggie McKearin, who scored seven.
Bernhardt led OV with 11 points, and Edmunds scored eight, and they teamed up to help OV dominate the boards. The Phantoms, however, forced 34 OV turnovers.
On Friday host Hazen (2-0) held off the Commodores, 53-45, as Alleigh Gabaree tossed in 21 points. Kate Gosliga scored 13 to lead the Commodores as they dropped their opener. They were seeking to bounce back on Wednesday night at Harwood.
