LOCAL SPORTS ROUNDUP

GREENWICH, N.Y. -- Matt Parmenter’s touchdown from 2 yards out and a pair of late defensive stands provided the lifelines for the Cambridge Central School football team in Friday night’s wild 42-34 overtime win against Greenwich.

Parmenter finished with four touchdowns on the ground for the Indians (6-0), including one to help tie the game 34-34 late in regulation and the game-winner in overtime.

Cambridge quarterback Ethan English fired a pair of touchdown passes.

Greenwich (4-2) led 20-18 at halftime.

Patriots shut out Slaters

BENNINGTON -- A stout defensive effort and a goal in each half led the Mount Anthony Union High School field hockey team to a 2-0 win against Fair Haven on Friday.

Dominant in the first half, MAU (6-4) fired 14 shots at Fair Haven (3-6) goalkeeper Jenna Alexander. But the Slaters’ backstop only yielded a goal to Makayla Farrara at the 8:24 mark -- Gabby Loomis offered the assist.

"It wasn’t easy. Their goalkeeper was very good," MAU coach Laura Paro said. "We peppered her."

Rachel Holland doubled the lead after halftime with a rocket shot off a penalty corner. Paige Harrington assisted.

Leah Holland made eight saves for MAU, while her defense chipped in with four. Alexander had 17 saves.
