ADDISON COUNTY — Vergennes Union High School senior Adam Gill reached the coveted 1,000-point plateau, Middlebury posted a big win over Mount Abraham, and Otter Valley earned its 10th win to highlight local boys’ basketball in the latter half of last week.

COMMODORES

Gill, a senior guard and a Lake Division and Addison Independent All-Star, reached the milestone in front of a cheering home crowd on Wednesday night while the Commodores faced Lake foe Missisquoi. Gill sank a free throw to reach 1,000 points during a night he erupted for 25 points.

Unfortunately, even with 14 points from Gill’s teammate Dylan Bradford, the 13-4 T-Birds prevailed, 75-64, as Richard Walker racked up 37 points, 17 rebounds and eight assists.

 On Thursday, host Montpelier outscored VUHS, 24-11, in the third quarter in a 66-58 Solon win. Bradford (20 points), Lance Bergmans (13) and Gill (12) all reached double figures for the Commodores.

On Saturday, the Commodores knocked off host Milton, 72-59, with 26 points from Bradford and an 18-point surge in the fourth quarter. Gill chipped in 19 points as VUHS improved to 3-15.

TIGERS VS. EAGLES

On Wednesday, the Tigers cruised past Mount Abe, 83-35. Trey Kaufmann paced the Tigers with 27 points, and Cody Pomainville (15) and Spencer Carpenter (12) also contributed for the Tigers, who made it four wins in six games. Jack Willis led Mount Abe with 11 points.

On Thursday, the Eagles bounced back to nip visiting Milton in overtime, 50-48. Milton outscored the Eagles by 16-4 in the fourth quarter to force the extra session at 46-46, but Dustin Whitcomb scored all four of Mount Abe’s OT points to help the Mount Abe snap a nine-game skid. He finished with eight, while Finn Clements (15) and Coleman Russell (13) led the Eagle scorers.

On Saturday, visiting BFA-St. Albans outscored the Eagles by 23-10 in the fourth quarter in a 69-48 win. Chris Wood led Mount Abe (5-12) with 12 points, and Whitcomb and Willis added 11 apiece.

Meanwhile, the Tigers found tough going on the road. On Friday, host Colchester defeated the Tigers, 71-44. Pomainville and Kaufman tallied 14 points apiece in the setback.

On Saturday, host Missisquoi (14-4) coasted to an 82-47 victory as Walker recorded 36 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists. Pomainville scored 16 points and Trey Kaufmann added 15 as the Tigers slipped to 4-14.

OTTERS

On Wednesday visiting Mount St. Joseph (13-4) defeated OV as Jelani Williams scored all 18 of his points in the fourth quarter to help the Mounties pull away. Derek Aines (20) and Dylan Mackie (11) led the Otters.

On Friday, OV edged Proctor, 58-56, and move to 10-8 entering the final week of the season. The Otters are in seventh in the Division II standings and hope to nail down a home playoff game, but several teams are close behind.

D-IV Proctor (15-3) led by nine in the first half, but OV pulled ahead 56-44 late and had to hold off a Phantom rally. Payson Williams broke a 56-56 tie with a move to the hoop and finished with 18 points. Aines scored 20, and Josh Letourneau chipped in 11.
