BENNINGTON >> The Brattleboro girls varsity soccer team fell to Burr and Burton, 7-0, in the opening round of the Lady Patriot Tournament on Thursday.
"The score doesn't tell the whole story. Brattleboro played a good game versus last year's finalist in the Division I tournament. There were periods in the game that Brattleboro was able to give the talent-filled Burr and Burton team good opposition," Colonels coach Edwin de Bruijn told the Reformer.
The winners outshot BUHS 19-6. Megyn Ayotte made a dozen saves for the purple and white, which also got strong games from freshmen Sophia Capy, Venus Fu and Olivia Romo.
Brattleboro's next game is today at 5 p.m. in Bennington versus Springfield in the Lady Patriot consolation matchup.
