ARLINGTON, Vt. — The Sharon Academy boys soccer team is having little difficulty finding the back of the net two matches into its VPA Division IV season.

Riley Eastman snapped the twine three times while Daniel Henderson and Ever Tofel struck twice each as the Phoenix rolled over Arlington, 7-2, on Friday evening. The victory came on the heels of an 8-1 rout of Randolph to open the campaign 48 hours earlier.

The Eastman-Henderson-Tofel triumvirate combined for 13 points in that win and produced another 12 against the Eagles. Eastman added three assists for a six-point evening. Henderson, Tofel and Luke Miller each had one assist. Goalie Parker Bogardus made two saves.

Tied 2-2 in the first half, Sharon scored for a one-goal halftime lead before adding four more unanswered goals in the second half.

“It was an odd game,” coach Blake Fabrikant said. “We came out flat and disorganized, but thankfully our well-taken goals kept us in the game while our defense sorted things out. Our three attacking midfielders (Eastman, Henderson, Tofel) are all incredibly dynamic and skilled.”

Fabrikant will be looking for better possession and composure when the Phoenix meet Mount St. Joseph on Tuesday.

Kearsarge 3, Mascoma 2

NORTH SUTTON, N.H. — The Cougars scored nine minutes into the contest and never trailed despite two unassisted goals from Mascoma’s Ben Seiler.

Kearsarge added to its lead seven minutes after the interval before Seiler’s first strike in the 53rd minute. The Cougars later massaged a corner kick through traffic and behind Mascoma netminder Isaiah Hogan (14 saves), a key goal given Seiler’s second of the night with five minutes left.

“There was no shortage of effort from either team,” Mascoma coach Keli Green said.

The Royals (2-2-0) visit Prospect Mountain on Monday.

Hartford 6, Fair Haven 2

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION — Nolan McMahon delivered a hat trick with an assist as the Hurricanes (2-1-0) opened Southern Vermont League play with a dominant display against the Slaters at Maxfield Sports Complex.

Gabe Guillette scored once with a helper for the Canes.

Stratton Mountain pays Hartford a visit on Monday.

MSJ 4, Rivendell 3

RUTLAND — A Tyler Corey throw-in hit the head of a Rivendell defender and ricocheted into the net for an own goal with 4:44 to go, giving the Mounties the win over the Raptors (2-1-0) at Abatiell Field.

Derek Vogelien had a pair of goals for Rivendell. Lyle Rinehimer also scored, and Josiah Welch and Will Knowles earned assists. The Raptors had a chance to force OT in the final 16 seconds but missed the target on a late free kick.

The Raptors visit Twin Valley on Tuesday.

GIRLS SOCCERWoodstock 4, Windsor 1

WOODSTOCK — The Wasps (2-0) received two-goal performances from Chloe Masillo and Hannah Reed to outscore the Yellowjackets (0-3-0).

Emma Tarleton earned the win in goal for Woodstock, making five stops. The Wasps pounded 14 shots on goal, drawing 10 saves from Windsor netminder Sophia Rockwood.

Audrey Rupp accounted for the Jacks’ goal.

“Woodstock is a well-coached, physical team and they came to play tonight,” Windsor coach Jeff Bachey said. “We did our best to hang in for the whole game, just got gassed in the last 20 minutes.”

Woodstock visits Hartford on Tuesday, the same day Windsor travels to Green Mountain.

Kearsarge 10, Mascoma 0

NORTH SUTTON, N.H. — The Cougars (4-1-0) overwhelmed the Royals (0-4-0) in the opening game of a girls-boys doubleheader.

Mascoma will reset and return to action at InterLakes on Tuesday.

Milford 1, Lebanon 0 (OT)

LEBANON — The Raiders saw a season-opening four-game winning streak come to a close in an overtime loss to the Spartans.

Lebanon (4-1-0) is off until a Friday visit to Plymouth.

FOOTBALLHanover 35, Manchester West 14

MANCHESTER — Jeffrey Vidou scored three touchdowns, Josh Bucci added a pick-six and Brendan Logan contributed at TD pass reception as Hanover (2-0) overturned the Blue Knights (0-2).

Vidou rushed for one score and snared two TD tosses from quarterback Colin Pierce. Logan’s reception came on a Roger Lucas throw. Linemen Pat Elder, Monty Hanchett, Connor Chambers, Jack Crandell and Cam Bonner gave Hanover’s QBs all the time they needed, coach Sam Cavallaro noted.

The HHS defense also excelled, holding West to just three first-half first downs. Hanover visits Hillsboro-Deering/Hopkinton on Sept. 18.

U-32 21, Woodstock 13

EAST MONTPELIER, Vt. — The Wasps (1-1) stayed with the D-II Raiders but ultimately came up short in a nonconference loss. Quarterback Colby Eaton hit Corey White with a pair of touchdown passes to account for Woodstock’s points.

The Wasps travel to Mill River in VPA D-III action on Sept. 18.

Newport 38, Bishop Brady 0

CONCORD — The Tigers improved to 2-0 with a shutout of the Green Giants at Memorial Field.

Newport returns home to face Franklin at Maryn Field on Sept. 18.

FIELD HOCKEYHanover 2, Hollis-Brookline 0

HANOVER — Natalie Feyrer and Livvy Trummel delivered first-half goals as Hanover (4-0-0) remained perfect on the season.

Feyrer converted a penalty corner feed from Mia Edmonds with 20 seconds left in the opening period. Trummel tipped in a drive from the 25-yard line off the stick of Taylor Vettori for a cushion. The teams played in the middle of the field the rest of the way, both failing to convert occasional opportunities.

Reilly Loughman had two saves, helped by defenders Stella Pinto and Caroline Healy. Hanover entertains Mascoma on Tuesday evening.

Lebanon 9, Milford 0

LEBANON — The Raiders (3-0-0) kept pace with Hanover atop the NHIAA Division III standings with a rout of the Spartans.

Molly Smith and Amalia Hickey put their fingerprints all over the scoreboard, factoring in Lebanon’s first eight goals in some fashion. Each recorded a hat trick; Hickey added four assists (setting up all of Smith’s goals), and Smith had two helpers. Sally Tretter netted the Raiders’ final two scores. Mackenzie Ray had a goal and an assist, and Keira Houdegbe contributed an assist.

Eight of Lebanon’s nine goals drew assists. Hickey had the only unaided goal on a penalty stroke.

“Molly Smith and Amalia Hickey had some great passing sequences,” coach Amanda Valliere noted. “We had been working on our passing angles all week, so it was nice to see that work applied well in a game.”

Lebanon crosses the river to meet Hartford on Wednesday.

Burr & Burton 3, Windsor 1

MANCHESTER, Vt. — The host Bulldogs scored three times on penalty corners to stop the Yellowjackets (1-2-0).

Fien Bueters scored once and set up BBA’s other two corner-fed strikes. Peyton Richardson had Windsor’s lone conversion, set up by Karen Kapuscinski and Meagan Holling. Lindsey Young finished with seven saves on the day.

“Another great, competitive game against a strong BBA team,” Windsor coach Jody Wood said. “It’s always nice to play on turf. The girls played well and held their own start to finish.”

The Jacks visit Otter Valley on Monday.

Mascenic 5, Mascoma 3

NEW IPSWICH, N.H. — The Royals (0-4-0) paid for a slow start as the Vikings built a 4-0 halftime lead and withstood a furious second-half comeback attempt.

Freshman Ann Buffington scored for the third straight game, upping her team-high tally to four goals thanks to a brace on Friday. Carmen Zani had the other goal off an assist from Hailey Miller.

“We charged back in the fourth (quarter) and scored three goals,” Mascoma coach Jenn Hammond said. “The level of intensity we played with at the end of the game is what we need to start right off with.”

It won’t get easier: The Royals have a date at undefeated Hanover on Tuesday night.

Hopkinton 10, Stevens 3

HOPKINTON, N.H. — The Cardinals (1-2-0) became the latest victim of the buzzsaw Hawks, who have outscored foes 25-4 en route to a 4-0-0 start to the season.

Bri Frisbee, Sara Faro and Sofia Aldecoa scored goals for Stevens. Richelle Girard had an assist, and goalie Ashley Michaud stopped 14 shots.

VOLLEYBALLMVCS 3, Montpelier 2

MONTPELIER — The Eagles completed a busy week with a 25-21, 25-27, 25-19, 21-25, 15-5 squeaker over the Solons to sweep a three-match slate.

Haley Goodwin’s 20-dig defense set the table for victory. The senior added a team-high nine kills to the attack. Delaney Gross (eight aces, 17 assists), Felicity Adams (eight kills) and Skye Whitcomb (nine digs) also played big roles.

“We had to battle back from seven- and eight-point deficits to win games 1 and 3, but the girls were able to pull together to stay in the game and eventually take the match,” co-coach Tom Evans said.

Mid Vermont Christian (3-0) hosts Colchester on Tuesday.

Plymouth 3, Hanover 0

PLYMOUTH, N.H. — Hanover dropped to 1-2 with the shutout loss to the Bobcats. Next up: a Tuesday evening home date with ConVal.
