BRATTLEBORO — After splitting with a pair of undefeated teams last week, the Brattleboro Union High School varsity baseball team zipped Stratton 8-0 on Monday at Tenney Field.

“It was a flat effort by us, maybe because we weren’t playing a team the caliber of CVU or because it was Prom Weekend,” said winning coach Chris Groeger.

Zinabu McNeice and Aaron Petrie drove in three and two runs, respectively. Willem Thurber added one RBI, while catcher Turner “Cowboy” Clews threw out a runner trying to steal and also chipped in with one knock.

Jolie Glidden went the distance for the victory. He struck out 10 and gave up just two hits.

The 6-1 Colonels will face Hartford on Thursday. Alex “Moose” Bingham will be on the hill.
