Brush duo helps Shamrocks to New England title
EXETER, N.H. — The Vermont Shamrocks Under-16 girls’ hockey team, featuring Middlebury Union High School freshman Carlisle Brush and co-coached by MUHS Coach Matt Brush, won the New England Tier II championship in games played in Exeter, N.H., from March 15-17.
The Shamrocks went 4-1 in the tournament and defeated the Connecticut Northern Lights, 2-1, in the final on March 17, with Carlisle Brush picking up the assist on the game-winner with 3.9 seconds to go in regulation. Brush shot from the point, and teammate Lydia Bullock netted the rebound.
Brush picked up four assists overall during the tournament for a team that includes players from around Vermont.
The Shamrocks will play for the National Tier II title in Buffalo, N.Y., between April 4 and 7. The Shamrocks’ U-19 team, including local players Aleta Mathers, Alexis Bartlett and Abigail Gleason, also won the New England tournament and will play in Buffalo next week for the U.S. Tier II championship.
