MAV girls’ lacrosse splits contests

VERGENNES — The Mount Abraham-Vergennes girls’ lacrosse team split a pair of recent games against two of the top teams in Division II. The Commodores’ record remains at .500 at 4-4.

On May 5, third-place host U-32 (6-2) defeated the Commodores, 16-6, pulling away from an early 4-4 tie in a game played at Norwich University. Annie Dufault (three goals), Nell Harvey (two goals) and Reese Gernander found the net for MAV. Willa Long tossed in seven goals for the Raiders. 

On Tuesday, the Commodores rallied from a 6-1 deficit and eventually defeated visiting second-place Spaulding in overtime, 12-11. Anna Stilwell scored the tying goal with 1:26 left in regulation and Harvey got the winning goal 21 seconds into overtime. Critically, Gernander controlled both draws to give the Commodores the opportunities to tie and then win the game. 

Harvey led MAV with four goals and two assists, followed by Anna Stillwell (three goals, assist), Gernander (two goals, assist), Dufault (goal, assist) and Kennedy Denecker and Siena Stanley (one goal apiece). Carley Cook backstopped the win with 14 saves, while two Tide goalies combined for seven saves.
