VUHS girls’ lacrosse moves to 11-0
VERGENNES — The Vergennes-Mount Abraham cooperative girls’ lacrosse team won three games late last week to remain undefeated and in first place in Division II.
The 11-0 Commodores will look to wrap up the top seed with a Monday home game vs. Lamoille, a Tuesday game at Harwood, and a challenging Thursday home game against a one-loss Green Mountain Valley squad.
On this past Wednesday the Commodores blanked visiting Harwood, 10-0. Jalen Cook, Leah Croke and Grace Harvey each scored twice to lead the attack. Goalie Ashley Tierney stopped the only shot the Commodores allowed, while Harwood goalie Emma Caffry made 20 saves.
On Thursday the Commodores picked up a big road win, defeating defending champion and then second-place U-32, 9-8. The Commodores took a 9-4 second-half lead and staved off a Raider rally.
Marley Keith (two goals, two assists) and Txuxa Konczal (two goals) led the attack, and Cook scored once, assisted two goals, and led the team with eight ground balls. Tierney made nine saves, while goalie Kathryn Jones stopped 19 shots for the 6-2 Raiders, who got three goals from Cypress Levitt.
On Friday the Commodores topped visiting Milton, 14-2, as Sophie Davis, Hannah Kelley and Harvey each finished with three goals and an assist. Siobhan Eagan added two goals and an assist, and Tierney stopped six shots. Goalie Mar Osiris made 14 saves for the 0-8 Yellowjackets.
