MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School field hockey team on Monday played arguably its most complete game of the year, and as a result the Tigers stunned Division I’s second-place squad, Essex, 2-1.
After a scoreless first half in which the territory was even, but the 8-2-2 Hornets launched the only five shots on goal, Essex junior standout Jenna Puleo gave her team the lead with a 50-yard run through the Tigers and a strong finish into the lower left corner 1:40 after halftime.
BRANDON — The Otter Valley Union High School field hockey team rallied past visiting Division I foe Mount Anthony on Tuesday, 2-1, to improve to 7-5.

Each team had two more games before a possible quarterfinal collision that would be a rematch of the 2015 final. The Otters will visit D-I Rutland on Friday and host D-II foe Woodstock on Saturday at 11 a.m.
