ADDISON COUNTY — If a movie director pitched a script in which an all-star team leader capped a senior season with a hat trick in the championship game — and the third goal was the double-overtime game-winner — a studio head might reject the concept for not being believable. But that’s just what happened on the University of Vermont’s Moulton-Wynder field back on Nov. 3. And accomplishing that feat is one reason that Mount Abraham Union High School’s Jalen Cook earned another title: Addison Independent Player of the Year. Cook was one of a talented group that helped Coach Mary Stetson’s...

BRISTOL — It’s not that often that a team outshot by 14-0 in a first half pulls out a victory. But that is what the resilient Vergennes Union High School boys’ soccer squad did at rival Mount Abraham on Friday, scoring twice in the second half on a penalty kick by junior Ben Kayhart and a direct kick by senior Max Ratti-Bicknell to stun the Eagles, 2-1. Even in the second half, Mount Abe (2-6-1) held advantages over the Commodores in shots, 7-6, and corner kicks, 6-0, but could not put away VUHS. VUHS Coach Kevin Hayes made lineup changes that helped, inserting freshman Josias Salamao at...
