BRATTLEBORO -- The Twin Valley boys soccer team, which went undefeated in 2013, will open up at Bellows Falls on Tuesday, Sept. 2, at 4:30 p.m. The Twin Valley girls booters will debut the following day, with a home match against Black River at 6 p.m.

Buddy Hayford and Chris Walling will again coach the Twin Valley soccer teams. Hayford's boys went 14-0 during the 2013 regular season and Walling's girls finished up at 8-6.

Led by Colin Lozito, the Wildcats continued the magical run by blanking Arlington 5-0 in the quarterfinals, routing Cabot 6-0 in semis, and taking care of Proctor 3-0 in the Division 4 title game. Keeper Sam Molner allowed just one goal all year long.

The Twin Valley girls went 1-1 in last year's Division 4 bracket -- outscoring South Royalton 3-0 in a playdown game before falling to eventual state champion Proctor 6-0 in the quarterfinals.

You may want to highlight the Sept. 9 "Santa game" on your calendar this season, which is when the Bellows Falls girls visit Whitingham. The whole thing started when Terriers coach John Broadley said his team gifted a couple of goals to the Wildcats during a game in Westminster, only to have Saint Nick show up for the second meeting that year which took place in Wilmington.
