VERGENNES — Both boys’ soccer coaches came away pleased after Friday’s game between host Vergennes Union High School and Middlebury, but one was happier: The Tigers withstood a second-half Commodore surge to win, 3-1.

Coach Reeves Livesay’s Tigers finished the regular season at 6-5-3 after a 1-3 start, a turnaround that started with the program’s first victory over Champlain Valley in 20 years.

That record betters 2015’s 6-7-1 despite a tougher schedule and further improves on 2014’s 2-11-1.

ADDISON COUNTY — In the past two weeks, black and gold became temporary colors of choice for many Addison County students, teachers and school employees.

Sadly, it was not a fashion trend: They were rallying around their peers at South Duxbury’s Harwood Union High School, who are reeling after the unspeakable Oct. 8 tragedy that claimed the lives of four current and one former Harwood students, all either 15 or 16.

Black and gold are Harwood’s school colors.

Commodore girls' soccer earn edge over MUHS

Posted on October 24, 2016 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



MIDDLEBURY — The Vergennes Union High School girls’ soccer team gave itself a needed shot in the arm on Saturday, defeating host Middlebury, 2-1, to snap a five-game skid and finish the regular season on a high note.

The 5-8-1 Commodores were competitive vs. tough teams — Division I MUHS once, and D-I Rice and improving D-II Mount Abraham twice each — in that slide.

But a victory as the Commodores head into the D-II playoffs should give them a lift, said Co-Coach Dwight Irish.
