ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school lacrosse action late last week, the Middlebury girls stretched their winning streak, the Otter Valley boys picked up a big win, and the Mount Abraham-Vergennes boys’ dropped a pair of defensive battles.
The Middlebury boys were set to host Mount Mansfield on Thursday; that game was postponed. The Tigers will visit Woodstock on Monday.
The VUHS-Mount Abe cooperative girls’ team’s Friday game at U-32 was also postponed. The Commodores will host the Raiders on Monday.
On Wednesday the Tigers coasted past visiting Burlington,16-6. Emily Laframboise (four goals) and Lacey Greenamyre (three) led the attack, and Ada Anderson, Malia Hodges andCarlisle Brush each scored twice. Goalie Lydia Deppman stopped 10 shots, as did Seahorse goalie Zoe Cudney.
On Friday the Tigers topped visiting Mount Mansfield, 14-8, in a game played at Middlebury College. The win, their fourth straight, evened their record at 4-4. In those four games the Tigers have scored at least 10 goals in each outing and have allowed no more than eight goals in any. “It’s coming together,” said Coach Brandi Whittemore. Her team visits Mount Anthony on Monday and hosts South Burlington on Wednesday.
On Thursday the OV boys topped visiting Green Mountain Valley, 6-4. It was the first win for Coach Jesse Milliman over GMVS in his five-year tenure, and possibly the program’s first-ever over the ski school.
Hayden Gallo scored five goals, three in the second half after OV took a 3-2 lead at the break, to spark the OV attack; Timothy Kittler assisted on the Gallo goal that made it 5-3. Ethan Sulik-Doty found the net in the first quarter for the other OV goal. At the other end OV goalie Alex Stevens excelled, making close to 20 saves, many with a high degree of difficulty.
The Otters improved to 2-3, including a 2-3 record in D-II; all three of their losses have come to D-I competition. They will look to reach .500 at Mount Abraham on Monday.
On Wednesday host Milton topped the Eagle boys, 8-3, thanks in part to 22 saves from Milton goalie Chris Lefebvre. Carmelo Miceli led the Eagles with a goal and an assist, Liam Oxford andRyan Rougier also scored, and Quincy Cook picked up an assist. Eagle goalie Grady Brokaw stopped nine shots.
