Enfield — Nathan Subrahmanian scored a first-half goal and set up a second after the interval as Touchline V blanked Upper Valley United, 2-0, on Wednesday in a New Hamshire Soccer Conference match at Shaker Recreation Park.

Subrahmanian’s unassisted strike staked Touchline (3-0) to a one-goal lead by halftime. Oscar Miller doubled the advantage by converting Subrahmanian’s lead pass in the second half.

Touchline might have done more damage had it not been the play for Upper Valley United’s Lizz Pelton in goal. A rising senior who will help captain Mascoma High’s soccer team this fall, Pelton finished with 12 saves. “She was very strong on corner kicks,” Touchline coach Rob Grabill said. “She had an all-around great game.”

C.J. Wheelan and Jack Maynes combined on the shutout for Touchline, with Evan Nichols and Palmer Okai providing strong cover at center back. Pierce Hamlin and Isak Laurusson powered Touchline through the midfield.

Touchline visits Claremont in North Charlestown on Sunday. UV United (1-2) is off until hosting Touchline’s NHSC Division IV squad on July 9.

NECBL Baseball

Hawks All Wet Again

White River Junction — For the second time this week, with a third possibly coming today, the Upper Valley Nighthawks saw a New England Collegiate Baseball League date claimed by inclement weather.

Wednesday’s scheduled home game with the Vermont Mountaineers was called off by rain. It will be made up as part of a doubleheader on July 15 at the Maxfield Sports Complex. The first of the two seven-inning games will start at 4 p.m.

The team also announced that the final day of its youth baseball camp today has been postponed and will be held on Friday instead.

The Nighthawks are scheduled to host the Danbury Westerners tonight for a 6:30 p.m. first pitch. Should weather intervene — the area was under a flash flood watch as of press time — it would mean Upper Valley (9-7) would have played just once in five days.
