Boys’ hockey team drops three games
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ basketball team dropped three games between Jan. 26 and 31. The Tigers’ record dipped below .500 for the first time at 4-6-1 with the setbacks.
The Tigers were set to host Burlington on Wednesday night and Woodstock is scheduled to visit at 7 p.m. on Friday.
On Jan. 26, host Burr & Burton cruised past the Tigers, 6-1. Max Brownlee and Karter Noyes each scored twice for the Bulldogs. Toby Draper notched the lone Tiger goal.
On Saturday, visiting Milton pulled away in the second and third periods to defeat the Tigers, 4-1, despite an advantage in shots for MUHS and what Coach Jordan Stearns called a strong effort.
The first period ended in a 1-1 tie, with Kellan Bartlett (assisted by Iver Anderson and Jordan Martin) scoring for MUHS. But Milton scored twice in the second period and once in the third for the win.
Tiger goalie Eddie Hoddie made 26 saves, and Milton’s Teddy Munson made 32. Dylan Mitchell and Braden Mathieu led Milton with a goal and an assist apiece.
On Monday, host Champlain Valley got past the Tigers, 3-1. Harper Anderson scored twice for the Redhawks, and CVU goalie Jack Averill made 19 saves.
Cole Schnoor scored for the Tigers, and Hodde stopped 21 shots.
