MIDDLEBURY — Alanna Trudeau erupted for six goals to propel the Middlebury varsity girls lacrosse team to a 13-2 victory over Brattleboro in Saturday’s season opener.

“We knew Middlebury would be a tough opponent and they came out very strong in the first half, as our players were settling into their roles and making quick adjustments. The second half was a totally different game, when we played much better and more cohesively. It’s a great sign when a team can reset after a hard first half, so I think the girls should feel really proud of their efforts,” said first-year BUHS coach Sarah Armour-Jones.

Brianna Paul scored both of Brattleboro’s goals. Abbey Squiers and Isabelle Studley combined for 17 saves.

Brattleboro roster: Coach — Sarah Armour-Jones. Players — Raina Armour-Jones, Annika Crego, Juliana Miskovich, Willow Romo, Ava Ferencz, Alora Lawyer, Brianna Paul, Sophia Mikijaniec, Sarah Butterfield, Sophia Hamm, Padma Mendelsund, Grace Szpila, Kiran Tyler, Rosalie Smith, Abigail Squiers, Isabelle Studley.


WESTMINSTER — Bellows Falls fell to Mount Anthony Union 10-9 on Saturday.

“We gave up 10 runs in the first three innings due to poor defense, then settled down and made a great effort to come back,” said BF skipper Bob Lockerby. “We lost with runners on second and third in the seventh.”

Jack Burke and Elliott Graham each pounded out a couple of hits to lead the 0-1 Terriers offensively. Jack Cravinho, Grady Lockerby and Graham took turns pitching.
