High school hoop: Eagle boys post only victory

ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school basketball action earlier this week the Mount Abraham boys earned a notable victory, but the Vergennes girls and boys and Middlebury girls all suffered setbacks.
Girls’ teams are in the final week of the regular season. The Vermont Principals’ Association will announce playoff pairings on Monday.
The Eagles defeated visiting Enosburg on Monday, 67-60, for their seventh win of the winter, the program’s most since the 21-win season of 2008. The Eagles outscored the Hornets by 19-7 in the third period to lead by 49-32 entering the fourth and then withstood a barrage of three-pointers to earn the win. Eagle Logan Rodriguez scored 12 of his 16 points in the second half, Liam Kelliher also posted 16 points, and Shain Sargent added 12. Gavin Johnson scored 16 for the 6-11 Hornets.
On Tuesday host Enosburg improved to 15-4 by outlasting the VUHS girls, 43-36. Meg Severance led the Hornets with 12 points.  Kate Gosliga scored 10 points to lead a balanced Commodore effort. VUHS dropped to 8-10, and the team’s hopes for a first-round D-II home game dimmed.
Visiting Milton defeated the MUHS girls, 36-20, as Yellowjacket standout senior Cassidy Button scored 13 points, including the 1,000th of her career on an early free throw. Ivy Doran netted 13 points for MUHS, which hopes to defeat visiting Enosburg on Friday to avoid a winless season.
Visiting St. Albans sank the Commodore boys on Monday, 71-44. Taylor Yates (18 points) and Logan Tobin (14) led the 7-8 Bobwhites, winners of six games in seven outings. Ben Curtis, returning from a major injury in the Commodores’ opener, put in 12 points by sinking four shots from behind the arc, and Luke Bergmans added 10.
The Division I Bobwhites improved to 7-8 with their sixth win in seven outings. VUHS (4-12) was set to visit Middlebury (13-2) on Wednesday after the deadline for this edition.
