BRATTLEBORO -- Brattleboro moved to 4-1 on the season with a 17-7 victory over Hartford on a rainy Wednesday afternoon at BUHS.
The Colonels overcame an early 4-3 deficit scoring the final two goals of the first quarter to take a 5-4 lead. After moving ahead, the Colonels stayed on top, blanking the Hurricanes 11-0 in the second and third quarters, taking a 14-4 lead into the final quarter.
"Hartford has some great athletes and is a program on the rise," said Brattleboro coach Chris Sawyer. "To have success this season, we’ll have to continue developing our lacrosse IQ and our understanding of fundamental play."
The Colonels were led by Brennen Zolnoski who had a big game, scoring seven goals with an assist. Sam Siegel (three goals), Jack Gagnon (two goals and three assists), Conner Elliott-Knaggs (two goals), Evan Perkins (one goal and three assists), Robyn Avery (one goal and one assist), and Kyle Patno (one goal and one assist) all broke into the scoring column.
Bryce Fletcher assisted on three of the Colonel goals with Tanner Freeman and Liam Perra adding an assist each. Perry Legg led the Colonels in the ground ball game while goalie Ian Cebek finished the day with four saves. Hartford goalie James Young finished with 13 saves.
The Colonels, seeking their fourth consecutive MVL title, open up league play today against MAU in Bennington at 4:30.
"We have a lot of respect for their team and we’ll know a lot more about ourselves after Friday," said the BUHS coach.
