ADDISON COUNTY — Middlebury topped Vergennes to highlight the boys’ high school soccer slate between Oct. 13 and 19. In other games, Mount Abraham lost at home, and Otter Valley won on neutral territory.

The Commodores also hosted the Eagles on Tuesday; see story on Page 1B.

Carpenter also assisted Eddie Fallis’s first-half score, and goalie Owen Lawton made six saves for MUHS. The Tigers improved to 7-4-1 heading into a Wednesday game at undefeated Milton, which was played after the deadline for this edition.

The Commodores knotted the score in the second half with a strike from Shamus Rooney, and goalie Abram Francis stopped eight shots. VUHS carried an 8-2-2 record into Tuesday’s home match with the Eagles.


On Friday visiting Rice avenged an earlier home loss to Mount Abe by blanking the Eagles, 2-0.

Morgan Kenny and Victor John found the net for the Green Knights in the second half, and goalie Nate Degraff-Murphy made two saves.

Creed Stilwell made 10 saves for the Eagles, who dropped to 4-6-1 heading into Tuesday.


In a Saturday game played as part of a three-game fundraising tournament at Proctor, the Otters blanked Fair Haven, 2-0, improving to 3-8-2 by doing so.

Drew Pelkey, from Aiden Decker, gave the Otters an early lead, and Kieran Williams added a second-half pad goal on a direct kick.
