LEBANON — Thanks to a hat trick by Alice Piper, Hartford High field hockey defeated Lebanon High, 4-1, in a cross-state battle on Monday.

Hartford (6-1-0) earned its second consecutive win, while Lebanon (8-1-2) suffered its first loss of the season.

Sophomore Madi Willey put the Hurricanes ahead in the first quarter, but Lebanon freshman Kenzie Ray leveled the score just two minutes later.

Piper’s three goals were spread throughout the rest of the game — she scored one each of the remaining three quarters. Willey added two assists to her goal, and senior Elsie Davis and freshman Madi Barwood also picked up assists for Hartford. Freshman goalie Paige Vielleux saved six Lebanon shots.

The Hurricanes created 11 penalty corners in the game, while Lebanon only had three.

“This was our biggest win this year,” Hartford head coach Heather Scudder said. “Both teams were playing pretty hockey, and we were delighted to come out on top.”

Senior Molly Smith assisted the lone Raiders goal. Head coach Amanda Valliere said senior Clara Smyrski played well in the middle.

“Today was rough,” Valliere said. “We couldn’t pass; we couldn’t dribble. Hartford did a great job playing every ball. Today we got outhustled, simple as that.”

The Hurricanes are right back in action Tuesday at Rutland. Raiders will hit the road to take on ConVal on Friday.

BOYS SOCCER Mascoma 5, Kearsarge 0

WEST CANAAN — The Royals (6-4-0) flipped the script from their previous loss to the Cougars last month to earn their second straight win.

Mascoma was without its leading scorer in senior Ben Seiler but still managed a thorough victory in a full team performance.

Junior Grant Suttie gave the Royals the lead five minutes into the contest, unassisted. Junior Zach Thompson doubled the lead in the 33rd minute on an assist by freshman Tanner Moulton.

In the second half, Suttie scored again in the 56th minute. Then Thompson picked up his second goal in the 65th minute on another assist by Moulton. Senior Cole Moulton scored the fifth goal in the 71st minute on Tanner’s third assist of the day.

Sophomore goalkeeper Isaiah Hogan saved 10 shots.

“(We) really showed grit, determination and persistence today,” head coach Keli Green said. “The Royals rallied to put in one of our best team performances of the season.”

Mascoma will hit the road Wednesday to take on Monadnock.
