BRISTOL — Visiting No. 5 Harwood on Saturday No. 4 Mount Abraham Union High School boys’ soccer team’s season by defeating the Eagles, 2-0, in a tense Division II quarterfinal.
The 9-1-3 Highlanders — unbeaten since an opening Sept. 10 loss — scored in the first half and made it stand up despite the 10-4-2 Eagles’ edge in possession, shots (13-7) and corner kicks (4-3).
BRANDON — Going into Thursday’s home Division II quarterfinal, Otter Valley Union High School junior Allison Lowell had scored in every one of the OV field hockey team’s games this fall except one.
Senior midfielder Maia Edmunds had assisted many of Lowell’s goals. Meanwhile, junior goalie Myliah McDonough had made more than 100 saves.
Given all that, when the No. 2 Otters and No. 7 Harwood entered overtime on Friday in a scoreless tie, maybe the outcome was inevitable.

The defending Division II champion Eagles, seeded fifth, scored twice in the first eight minutes in a 3-1 win at No. 4 Harwood. The victory, the 10-6 Eagles’ eighth straight, lifted them to a semifinal date at No. 1 U-32 (14-2).
MIDDLEBURY — To many people, retirement provides the opportunity to rest and relax after a career (or series of careers) that had kept them running and dictating day-to-day choices for what can be 45 years or more.
Sitting, resting and relaxing is what they crave most. Luxuries like reading novels and newspapers become easy to fit in, hobbies like knitting or exploring art are the center of attention, time to prepare delicious meals that previously were too rushed through is easy to come by.
