VERGENNES — Vergennes Union High School girls’ basketball Coach Billy Waller said Thursday was the first time in at least seven years that his Commodores had defeated Mount Abraham. But their 35-25 victory over the 6-4 Eagles didn’t look like a fluke. The Commodores smothered the Eagles with tough man-to-man defense, setting the tone by allowing two points in the first quarter. They forced 18 Eagle turnovers, led by seven steals from sophomore Felicia Poirier, and converted them into 18 transition points. They outrebounded the Eagles, 31-25, with senior Kate Gosliga hauling down 13 boards to...

MIDDLEBURY — A Middlebury Union High School boys’ hockey team bit by the injury bug did almost everything it needed to do to defeat visiting Division I power Essex on Tuesday. The Tigers defended responsibly all over the ice, for the most part stayed out of the penalty box, got strong goaltending, and played hard. But what they couldn’t do — with senior captains Kam Bartlett and Devon Kearns out of the lineup due to possibly season-ending injuries and third senior forward Logan Pierson-Flagg studying abroad — was generate consistent offensive pressure or take advantage of the chances they did...

Otter Valley’s Tuesday home game vs. Springfield was postponed until Feb. 8. TIGERS The Middlebury Tigers earned their most one-sided victory in years, topping visiting Milton, 46-13, behind a balanced attack and stingy defense.
