MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School girls’ hockey team edged visiting Stowe on Friday, 4-3, to improve its record to 10-8 and clinch a .500 season in its first season in Division II. The Tigers won just twice a year ago playing in D-I before this winter’s rebound.
The Tigers twice faced one-goal deficits in Friday’s victory and won despite being outshot, 24-10. Stowe’s Stacy Tomlinson scored at 1:31 into the first period, unassisted. Middlebury’s Maria Ploof evened things up about a minute later, with an assist from Emmy Hescock.
