RICHFORD, Vt. — Thanks to two goals from Aspen Longmoore, including the first only 39 seconds into the match, the Oxbow High girls soccer team defeated Richford, 4-1, on a rainy Friday afternoon.

Longmoore’s first tally was on a pass from Leia White. Then in the 27th minute she added her second, an unassisted score to close out the first half.

In the 48th minute, Emma Parkin converted a corner kick to give Oxbow (4-3-0) the 3-0 advantage. Richford got one back in the 55th, but in the 70th minute Ellyn Hart scored the final goal of the day, thanks to a Taylor Bean assist.

“With two strong wins in a row, our team has started a good run,” Olympians coach Dan Thoams said. “We’re hoping to carry this momentum into our last regular-season game. I’ve seen some great improvement since the start of our brief season, and I believe we’ll end it strong.”

Oxbow closes out the regular season at BFA-Fairfax on Wednesday.

Windsor 5, Bellows Falls 0

WINDSOR — Elliot Rupp found the back of the net four times, leading the Yellowjackets to their second consecutive win.

“It was nice to get our offense back in the scorebook,” said Windsor coach Jeff Bachey, whose team improved to 5-1-0. “Spent some time this week focusing on our finishing, and it seemed to pay off tonight. The conditions made it tough for us to really play our possession style, but we adapted.”

Windsor visits Bellows Falls on Tuesday.
