Tiger boys stem the Tide in hockey
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ hockey team on Saturday held off a late rally by visiting Spaulding to prevail, 5-4, in the opening Division I game for both teams.
Goals by Hale Hescock and Kamrin Bartlett 1:10 apart midway through the third period gave the Tigers a 5-2 lead, enough to withstand goals by the Tide’s Jesse King and Evan Parent down the stretch. Parent’s strike, with 1:11 to go, was his second of the game and he also assisted a goal. Tide goalie Grant Otis stopped 23 shots.
Joey Niemo, Ryan Nadeau and Aaron Larocque also scored for the Tigers, while Devon Kearns and Tucker Stearns each picked up two assists. Logan Pierson-Flagg and Bode Rubright added an assist apiece, and goalie Jeffrey Stearns made 23 saves.
The Tigers were set to visit Lake Placid on Wednesday night and will next host their annual holiday tournament on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 28 and 29.
