VERGENNES — Things might be coming together for the Vergennes Union High School girls’ soccer team. For sure, challenges lie ahead for the 6-3-1 Commodores before the Division III playoffs, including games vs. three tough D-II teams. But last week the Commodores followed a 5-0 victory at Spaulding on Wednesday with a solid 4-1 decision on Friday over visiting Middlebury. Those games came after a tough prior week that saw 3-0 setbacks vs. D-II Mount Abraham and Rice.  The Commodores and their coaches believe the better results show their progress in possessing the ball, being more aggressive...

HINESBURG — The Middlebury Union High School football team coasted past overmatched host Champlain Valley on Saturday, 45-7, to remain undefeated at 6-0. The Redhawks fell to 2-4.  The Tigers and St. Johnsbury, which defeated host Burr & Burton, 50-38, on Friday, are the only remaining unbeaten Division I teams. St. Johnsbury is in first place based on quality points and will almost certainly earn the top seed in the playoffs unless the Hilltoppers are upset in their final two games.  MUHS will face what will probably be its toughest remaining test this Friday night, when the Tigers visit...

MIDDLEBURY — For the third straight game, the Middlebury Union High School boys’ soccer team found itself tied in the late going, this time at 0-0 in double overtime on Saturday against their scrappy neighbors from Vergennes.  The 8-2 Tigers, winners of five straight, found the same answer they had in their 1-0 win over visiting Milton on Sept. 27 and their 2-1 victory over Mount Abraham three days earlier.  That would be senior forward Eben Jackson, who scored the game-winner in both those games, in double overtime vs. Milton and with five minutes left in regulation vs. the Eagles. This time...

BRISTOL — Visiting Champlain Valley Union, in first place in Division I, controlled most of the play against the Mount Abraham Union High School field hockey team on Tuesday, but the Eagle defense and goaltending made the Redhawks work hard to earn a 2-1 victory. The Redhawks improved to 8-3, while the defending D-II champion Eagles dropped to 6-2-2 with their second straight setback after an overtime loss at South Burlington the previous Friday. They remain in second place in D-II with four games left in the regular season, although Otter Valley (7-2) is nipping at their heels. Those two...
