BBA drops Brattleboro

MANCHESTER — The Burr and Burton field hockey team scored a pair of goals in each half to run past Brattleboro, 4-0.

Sabina Buffa scored the first three goals and Hannah Hedberg scored the last one.

Hedberg added an assist, as did Nelly Hollweg and Chloe MacDonald.

Hannah Callen made one save to earn the win in the cage.

"It was also great to convert two of our 21 offensive corners to goals," said BBA coach Barb Miceli. "We had a very strong game from Brianna Mayne on the right attack and from Amber Rachele on the left wing. Hedberg did a great job of distributing the ball to both sides of the field from center mid in the first half. In the second half, she played on the right wing and was able to consistently send hard crosses into the circle."

BBA is now 4-3-2 and they travel to Otter Valley on Friday.

Bulldogs edged by Rutland

Rutland struck in the second minute on a goal from Zach Lane, assisted by Andres Aguilar. Burr and Burton outshot Rutland 8-4 in the second half but gave up a counter attack goal in their attempts to knot the score. Adres Aguilar hit a far post shot in the 73rd minute to go up 2-0.

BBA pulled out the stops and made it 2-1 on a nice header from Ben Stewart off a cross from Jordan Eisenman two minutes later.

BBA falls to 3-3-2 and will travel to Mill River on Friday for a non-league match.

SVC edged by Lyndon

LYNDONVILLE — The Southern Vermont College men's soccer team conceded a goal with 12:01 left in regulation Tuesday afternoon to fall 2-1 to Lyndon State College in non-conference action at Varsity Field.

The Mountaineers found the back of the net first for a slim lead in the 15th minute, but the Hornets tied it up with just over 10 minutes to go in the opening stanza. The 1-1 deadlock lasted until late in the 78th minute when Lyndon State put home the eventual game winner before keeping SVC from finding the equalizer for the inner-state victory.

Jared Lacoste had his team-leading eighth goal of the year represent the visitors' only scoring of the day. That ties him for the league-high mark and gives him the most goals this year of any freshman in the NECC.

Dylan Berg posted six saves in the loss.

Southern Vermont (3-9) is next in action on Saturday when the Mountaineers host Becker College for a 3:30 p.m. New England Collegiate Conference start at Everett Field.
