WESTMINSTER, Vt. — A second straight win over Bellows Falls, this time by a 3-1 tally on the road on Tuesday afternoon, has the Windsor High girls soccer team surging up the VPA Division III standings.

Evelyn Page had the first two goals for Windsor (6-1-0). Elliot Rupp added a goal, a rocket dotted into the corner of the net for an insurance goal with 10 minutes left to play. Page added an assist on Rupp’s goal.

Rupp scored four goals in Windsor’s 5-0 win over the Terriers on Friday night and was the main focus of the opposition defense from the start.

“Bellows Falls did what they could to try and shut her down,” Windsor coach Jeff Bachey said. “Abigail Broadley (of Bellows Falls) played great D on Elliot for the majority of the game. This freed up Evelyn for some great shots on frame.”

Goalkeeper Adi Prior made five saves for Windsor, which has allowed just three goals in its last six games. Windsor visits White River Valley on Thursday.

Coach Rob Stainton praised the defensive effort by the Wasps, keeping it clean in front of keepers Bissaillon and Michael La Croix. Otter Valley was unable to create any sustained pressure on either netminder.

Woodstock (5-2-1) will host Stratton Mountain on Thursday to close the regular season.

FAIRFAX, Vt. — The Olympians (1-5-0) were no match for host BFA-Fairfax.
