VERGENNES — The rematch is on for Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.

In 2013, the Bullets earned their second straight crown at the Commodores’ expense, 4-1, and the Commodores probably have known all along they would see BFA and ace pitcher Kayla Mathieu again.

At that point, Thurber, 65, who will retire at the end the week after a three-decade Addison Central Supervisory Union career, was a freshman at her hometown high school in Doylestown, Pa.

Her teacher, probably already sensing where Thurber’s path would lead her, asked Thurber if she wanted to take over for a while.
