No. 1 Mount Abe softball advances
BRISTOL — On an afternoon when rainy weather postponed most first-round playoff action, the Mount Abraham Union Softball team, the top seed in the Division II playoffs for the fourth straight season, advanced without having to take the field.
Rain originally postponed the 12-4 Eagles’ first-round game vs. No. 16 Bellows Falls (2-14). When the game could not easily be rescheduled, Mount Abe Athletic Director Devin Wendel said the Terriers opted to forfeit.
The walkover moved Mount Abe into a home quarterfinal scheduled for 4:30 p.m. on Friday. The Eagles will take on the winner of a game that was slated for Wednesday between No. 8 Mill River (6-8) and No. 9 Randolph (7-9.
If the two-time defending champion Eagles prevail on Friday they would host a semifinal on the following Tuesday, again assuming the weather cooperates.
