BRISTOL — In the end, 70 minutes of high school field hockey in Bristol on Friday settled nothing, except that maybe both host Mount Abraham and Middlebury wanted to win and might be ready for this week’s playoffs.
The result was a 0-0 tie that left the Division II Eagles at 4-6-4, including a 2-1-4 record in the past seven games. They will earn the No. 4 seed in D-II and host a quarterfinal, unofficially as of Sunday against Spaulding (7-5-2). The Vermont Principals Association was set to make playoff pairings final on Monday morning.
