Boys’ soccer teams seeing solid results

ADDISON COUNTY — In recent high school boys’ soccer action, Division II Middlebury opened by knocking off two D-I sides, Mount Abraham split a pair of games, Vergennes won over the weekend to move to 2-0, and OV settled for a road tie.

TIGERS

On Sept. 8, the Tigers made new coach Chris George a winner in his debut, 2-1, over visiting Division I foe Colchester.

Henry Carpenter converted two penalty kicks to account for the MUHS offense. Eddie Fallis and Ronen Silberman drew the fouls that sent Carpenter to the stripe. Tiger goalie Owen Lawton made six saves, and Laker keeper Domenick Puttlitz made four. Curtis Bourassa found the net for Colchester.

On Saturday, the Tigers knocked off another D-I foe, winning at Mt. Anthony, 4-1. MUHS led at the half, 1-0, on a Zach Wilkerson strike set up by Silberman, and then added three goals in a four-minute span of the second half. Oliver Anderson scored, from Oliver Choudhury, and Wilkerson and Silberman, on a penalty kick, added insurance goals.

MAU converted a PK in the late going. Both goalies, Lawton and the Patriots’ Aiden Mosarello, made four saves.

EAGLES

On Sept. 9, the Eagles made new coach Rider MacCrellish’s debut successful by defeating visiting U-32, 3-2.

Eli Burgess sparked the Eagles with a goal and an assist, Jake Lucarelli and Judah Jackson each scored, and Chance Denecker set up Jackson’s second-half goal that made it 3-1. Eagle goalie Creed Stillwell made nine saves, and U-32 keeper AJ Moore made three.

On Tuesday, visiting Colchester blanked the Eagles, 5-0. Demunga Afani scored twice to pace the Lakers, and Joey Klemm had a goal and an assist. Stillwell stopped five shots for the Eagles.

COMMODORES

On Sept. 9 VUHS improved to 2-0 by defeating visiting Winooski, 2-0. Jack Wyman snapped a scoreless tie early in the second half by picking off an errant pass and going to goal, and Ethan Gebo made it 2-0 in the 79th minute, with an assist from Jonah Mahé.

Commodore goalie Abram Francis worked a two-save shutout, and Ahmad Abdilah stopped seven shots for Winooski.

OTTERS

On Sept. 8, the Otters settled for a 0-0 tie at Proctor. OV goalie Hayden Bernhardt (eight saves) and Proctor netminder Ian French (17 saves) both played well — French made a game-saving stop on OV striker Luca Cifone as time wound down to force overtime.

“He had a spectacular save just before the end of regulation,” said OV Coach Dick Williams.

Overall, Williams believed his 1-0-1 Otters should have come away with a victory. “We didn’t finish when we should have,” he said.
