Girls’ hoop roundup: Eagles are only local victor

ADDISON COUNTY — Mount Abraham rolled past Middlebury to highlight local high school girls’ basketball action late last week. In other games, South Burlington continued its late-season surge by defeating Vergennes, while Otter Valley’s Friday home date with Leland & Gray was postponed until Feb. 28.

The Division II Otters are 6-7 after winning two of their past three games, all against D-I foes. They are scheduled to host Springfield on Tuesday and visit Fair Haven on Friday.

EAGLES-TIGERS

On this past Thursday, the Eagles coasted past host MUHS, 50-15, for their second solid win over the Tigers this winter. Lizzie Huizenga and Ashlie Fay led a balanced attack with 12 points apiece as the Eagles improved to 14-1 and held onto first place in D-II by a slim quality-point margin over U-32 (15-1) and BFA-Fairfax (14-1).

The Eagles host 1-12 Missisquoi on Monday, and then face a key test at D-I South Burlington (9-5) on Friday. The Rebels have won seven straight, including by 52-48 in Bristol.

The loss snapped the 3-10 Tigers’ three-game winning streak. Tiffany Danyow’s nine points led MUHS, which plays at South Burlington on Monday before hosting Milton on Thursday.

COMMODORES

Also on Thursday, South Burlington cruised at VUHS, 41-13, as Allie Flaherty tallied 17 points. Nikki Salley scored four points for the Commodores.

VUHS (2-12) will host another D-I Lake Division team, Colchester, on Tuesday, and then will seek a season’s sweep of Mount Mansfield at home on Friday.
