Basketball: VUHS girls, OV boys win
ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school basketball play earlier this week the Vergennes girls and Otter Valley boys picked up wins at home, but the VUHS boys and OV girls were less fortunate on the road.
The Mount Abraham boys won on Monday; see story on Page 1B. The Middlebury boys played on Wednesday after the deadline for this issue; other teams were idle.
On Monday the VUHS girls pulled away in the second half to double up host Winooski, 48-24. Already up at the break, 17-11, the 4-4 Commodores used a balanced attack to outscore the Spartans in the second half, 31-13.
Among the VUHS contributors were Ciara McClay, 10 points, three assists; Emma Bryant, seven points, seven rebounds; Amber Krumrie, six points, four assists, Sophie Hatch, six points, six rebounds, three steals, two assists; and Emily Rooney, six steals, six rebounds. Amna Cicak led Winooski with 10 points and 14 rebounds.
The OV boys moved back over .500 (6-5) by topping visiting Hartford on Tuesday, 40-25, in a defensive battle. Otter senior guard Dylan Mackie scored nine to lead all scorers as OV defeated Hartford for the second time this winter.
The OV girls came up short at Division I Burr and Burton on Tuesday, 32-23, as they had trouble finding the basket. The exception was Alia Edmunds, who tossed in 20 points for the Otters, who dropped to 4-6.
Host Montpelier took charge against the Commodore boys on Tuesday with a 20-7 advantage in the second quarter on the way to a 65-49 victory. The 5-4 Solons led at the half, 37-19, after that outburst.
Kevin Jackson and Nathan Bourgeois paced the 2-6 Commodores with 13 points each, and Gage Lalumiere added 10 points.
