MIDDLEBURY — The Mount Abraham Union High School boys’ soccer team took control during the second half of Middlebury’s J.P. Carrara tournament final to defeat Green Mountain Valley, 2-1, and win the championship.
As well as giving them their second straight Carrara title, the win also pushed the Division II Eagles to 2-1 after an opening one-sided loss to D-I title favorite Champlain Valley.
Junior striker Grayson Webb, who scored both Eagle goals against the 1-2 Gumbies, said the Eagles have improved their play and will get a lift from their tournament results.
