LOCAL SPORTS ROUNDUP

In the Twin States game, featuring a team from Vermont and New Hampshire, Mount Anthony Union High School coach Laura Paro took the helm for the last time in the state of Vermont.
Paro, who is moving to Connecticut later this summer, had one of her players in Leah Holland on the team, but the duo were handed a defeat in the Twin State game, with New Hampshire winning 6-1.
With Vermont down 1-0 at halftime, New Hampshire game out and outscored Vermont 5-1 in the second half to pull away.
Kameron Burke scored the lone goal for Vermont.
Holland and Eva Dunphy combined to make 22 saves for Vermont.
And while Vermont faced New Hampshire in field hockey, it was a North-South affair in softball.

In game one, the South scored eight runs in the second. Hartford’s Paige Larmie had a two-run double in the inning, while West Rutland’s Taylor Raiche had two hits in the frame.
In game two, Crowley pitched the sixth and seventh innings, striking out three while giving up two runs. Goodell hit a double in the contest.
