Girls’ hockey prevails twice
SWANTON — The Middlebury Union High School girls’ hockey team picked up a pair of Division II road wins last week, vs. Missisquoi on Saturday and Champlain Valley on Wednesday, to retain first place in the D-II.
The Tigers have won three in a row to improve to 7-5. All five of their setbacks have come against D-I competition. They will visit D-III Hartford on Wednesday before returning home on Friday at 4 p.m., when they will host another D-III foe, Burr & Burton.
On this past Wednesday the Tigers got third-period goals from Merry Kimball and Taylor Moulton to get past host CVU, 4-3.
Carlisle Brush and Camille Malhotra scored earlier in the game for MUHS, and goalie Lydia Deppman stopped 17 shots. Redhawk goalie Emma Rachford made 28 saves.
On Saturday at Missisquoi Brush scored three times as the Tigers doubled up the T-Birds, 4-2. Two of Brush’s scores came in the third period after MVU (3-12) scored on a power play to tie the score at 2-2. Aleta Mathers scored the other Tiger goal and assisted two of Brush’s strikes.
Brush scored on a first-period five-on-three power play to give MUHS the lead. That came shortly after Deppman (14 saves) denied an MVU breakaway. Breezy Parent’s second-period power play goal tied the score.
Mathers and MVU’s Savannah Fellows traded power-play goals early in the third before Brush scored the game-winner, a rush up the ice from her defensive position. Brush later added a pad goal on a power play. MVU goalie Maddie Conley made 28 saves.
