Slaters best VUHS boys’ soccer
VERGENNES — No. 11 Vergennes Union High School boys’ soccer drew a familiar foe in the Division III playoffs this past Wednesday, Oct. 25: No. 6 Fair Haven.
VUHS had lost to the Slaters, 2-1, back on Sept. 15. And this past Wednesday, history repeated itself, as the Slaters improved to 6-5-1 with another 2-1 victory.
All the goals were scored in the second half. Fair Haven’s Jack Spaulding scored in the half’s 14th minute on a corner kick with an assist from Jace Hetrick, and 10 minutes later Hetrick made it 2-0 with an assist from Spaulding.
Commodore Ryder Messinger’s unassisted goal with 1:10 to go created the final score. Slater goalie Noah Woodbury made four saves. VUHS keeper Devin Brisson made 16 saves as the Commodores wrapped up a 4-10-1 season that included a number of close losses.
