MIDDLEBURY — As has been the case at times this winter, on Monday the Middlebury Union High School boys’ hockey team did almost everything well enough to win.
The missing element in the Tigers’ 3-1 setback to visiting Northfield was offense. The Tigers outskated the 9-4 Marauders for most of the game and outshot them, 24-18, but couldn’t light the lamp.
Coach Derek Bartlett was left with mixed feelings about his 5-7-1 Tigers. Bartlett is disappointed that the Tigers don’t have more to show for their efforts, but not disappointed with their effort.
