SPRINGFIELD -- The Brattleboro varsity field hockey team played Springfield to a 1-1 tie on Monday.
"Our whole team played very well," said BUHS coach Deb Valliere, whose team is now 1-4-1 overall.
Katie Damian put home a rebound goal midway through the first half to give the Colonels a 1-0 lead. But the Cosmos answered just five or 10 minutes later.
Goalie Jen Dyer made some really good clears, according to Valliere, and Damian had a solid all-around game.
Brattleboro will host Windsor on Thursday.
Brattleboro 2, St. Johnsbury 2
ST. JOHNSBURY -- Brattleboro coach Edwin de Bruijn said he doesn’t like overtimes. His Colonels had already experienced one, early this season, and Monday’s game against the Hilltoppers wasn’t much different as the teams played through two OTs to a knotted-up finish.
"St. Johnsbury held their own," said de Bruijn. "It was hard for us to fight through it, but both teams seemed happy with their wins. We’re good in tying games!"
The Colonels took almost twice as many shots on goal than their opponents did, and Brattleboro goalie Amy Johnson made six saves in goal.
The purple and white scored both goals in the first, from Maddy Derosia and Molly Gurney. The hosts tied it up with 10 minutes left in regulation.
The 1-4-2 Colonels play at MAU on Wednesday at 6 p.m.
