Brattleboro 9, Keene 6
KEENE, N.H. -- It was Senior Night in Keene, and students from the high school were recognized for athletic and academic achievements. And Brattleboro’s seniors were also honored Friday night, before their team beat the Blackbirds.
Megan Siggins, with two goals and two assists, and Maddie Rollins, with five goals and an assist, led the visitors to the victory.
"It was a really competitive contest," said Colonel coach Maud Lonergan. "It was aggressive, but our defense did so well, Keene couldn’t get many shots off."
Brattleboro was up 7-3 at the break. The Colonels went scoreless during the second half for about 15 minutes while Keene had another goal, until Lizzie Clark and Rachel Hill each put away a shot to seal the deal.
Melissa "Sharky" Semenovich, Brattleboro’s goalie, at one point made a block with her foot, and finished with four saves on the night.
The 7-4 Colonels will play at Woodstock on Saturday at 7 p.m.
