SHARON — Harper Traendly’s hat trick, all in an eight-minute stretch, proved more than enough to lift the Rivendell Academy girls soccer team over host Sharon Academy, 6-0, on Tuesday afternoon.

Traendly came off the bench early in the first half and immediately provided a scoring spark with her three goals in quick succession, coming in the 18th, 20th and 26th minutes.

Alex McFate added a fourth in the 37th minute to cap what coach Tim Goodwin called one of the nicer goal-scoring plays of the season. Kylie Taylor and McFate met prior to an indirect kick to formulate a plan. Taylor took a run up to the ball and tapped it with the bottom of her foot to McFate, who was tailing her. McFate followed with a rocket into the top left corner for the goal.

Taylor and Elisia Sonsalla added goals in the second half. Iris Fukushima, Taylor and Allie Vogelien all had assists. Keepers Savannah Gray and Eiea Morgan split time to earn the shutout for the Raptors, with Morgan making her first two career varsity saves. Goodwin also praised the play of Lea Matena on the back line.

“Today we played well and took advantage of our opportunities,” Goodwin said. “I thought Sharon played a good, strong game and never let down. Harper putting in three quick goals really put us in the driver’s seat. A lot of what we’ve been working on as a team came together for us today.”

Rivendell (3-2-1) hosts White River Valley for homecoming on Saturday. Sharon (1-3-0) is also back in action on Saturday, visiting Poultney.

Oxbow 2, Craftsbury 1

CRAFTSBURY, Vt. — The Olympians (3-2-0) secured the win in a tight battle at Craftsbury.

Sophia Hayes scored on a cross from Madelyn Fredella in the 15th minute for Oxbow. Craftsbury answered three minutes later to tie it up. A Craftsbury hand ball in the 40th minute resulted in a penalty kick for the Olympians, which Emma Parkin converted to give the visitors a 2-1 edge at the break.

“We’ll take the win, but we weren’t quite playing the game we are capable of playing. We moved the ball well when we had control and had some great runs down the wing,” Oxbow coach Dan Thomas said.

The Olympians will host Hazen on Friday.

Salem 2, Hanover 0

HANOVER — Multiple close misses on the offensive end proved decisive as Hanover fell to 2-5-1 on the season in NHIAA Division I.

Riley McGuire had multiple shots just miss finding their mark for Hanover. Mia Madden played a great game in the midfield according to coach Doug Kennedy. Hanover hotshot Salem, 12-1, in the second half alone but came up empty.

“The vagaries of D-I continue to perplex and instruct. I’ll have to study a bit more,” Kennedy said.

Keepers Kaye Lindsay and Emma Kleber made four combined saves for Hanover, which visits Timberlane on Thursday.

Pembroke 4, Lebanon 1

LEBANON — Delaney DeShane scored on a header off a Mary Rainey direct kick for a highlight goal in the Raiders’ loss against Pembroke.

The DeShane header made it 3-1 for Pembroke, in the second half. Keeper Maddy Newton made seven saves for Lebanon (4-2-0), which visits Sanborn on Saturday.

BOYS SOCCERLebanon 6, Pembroke 1

PEMBROKE, N.H. — The Raiders (6-0-0) broke open a scoreless game by scoring four times in less than three minutes late in the first half.

Daniel Mladek opened the floodgates by finishing a Ryan Oliveira pass at 29:15. Oliveira had the first of his three goals, on a Krists Putans assist, just 75 seconds later, with the second coming on a penalty kick 40 seconds after that. Putans then set up Nick Brill at 31:50 to end the burst.

Brill set the table for Putans and Oliveira three minutes apart early in the second half for a 6-0 cushion. Pembroke broke the shutout with 19 minutes to play, ending a run of 37 consecutive goals for the Raiders in their contests dating back to the overtime winner against Stevens on opening day.

Colbie Delisle had four saves and Easton Wykes added one for the Raiders, who visit Sanborn on Saturday.

Mascoma 3, Berlin 2

WEST CANAAN — The Royals (4-2-0) earned a quality win against Berlin (5-2-0) on senior night.

Zach Thompson scored in the first half for Mascoma, with the assist going to Ben Seiler. Trailing 1-0 at half, Berlin answered in the 59th minute to knot the score. Seiler then put the Royals back in front, heading home a goal off Tanner Moulton’s goal kick. Grant Suttie added an insurance goal, which proved to be the game-winner, on a Seiler assist with four minutes left to play.

Coach Keli Green praised the entire Mascoma defense, which featured a goal-saving stop by defender Aidan Smith backing up keeper Isaiah Hogan (three saves).

Mascoma visits Hopkinton on Saturday.

Rivendell 2, Leland & Gray 1

TOWNSHEND, Vt. — The Raptors finished up seven straight road games to start the season with a win at the Rebels.

Josiah Welch fed a through ball to Derek Vogelien for a goal in the fourth minute to give the Raptors (5-2-0) an early advantage. The lead didn’t last long as the Rebels answered only 10 seconds later. The score remained tied until Garrett Stever fed a pass across the box from the right to Welch, who was in perfect position to score the go-ahead goal in the 28th minute.

Keeper Carter Bacon (six saves) anchored a resilient Rivendell defense. The Raptors now look forward to hosting White River Valley on Saturday for homecoming.

Hanover 2, Salem 1

SALEM, N.H. — Hanover struck for two goals in a span of less than a minute late in the first half and then held on to beat Salem and improve to 6-2-1.

Eric Ringer scored the first goal at 32:50 in the first half, firing a line drive into the top of the net off a feed from Carter Guerin. Guerin followed 50 seconds later, converting a rebound of a Becket McCurdy shot for a 2-0 lead.

Sophomore Jackson McBride saw his first varsity action in goal for Hanover, making four saves. Coach Rob Grabill also praised the back line play of Owen Smith and Alex McGrath, along with striker Jack Gardner.

Hanover visits Merrimack on Tuesday.

Craftsbury 2, Oxbow 0

CRAFTSBURY, Vt. — The Olympians fell to 1-4-0 with a tough loss at Craftsbury.
