ORFORD — Harper Traendly scored a pair of goals to power the Rivendell Academy girls soccer team to its second straight win, a 4-0 shutout of visiting Sharon on Tuesday afternoon.

The victory lifted the Raptors over the .500 mark at 5-4-1 on the season. Traendly scored the only first-half goal before Rivendell pulled away with three more after the break to secure the win.

“We put together a good 80 minutes of soccer today,” Rivendell coach Tim Goodwin said. “The girls continue to be brave and work on improving. I’m proud of the kids for their drive to improve and for coming together as a team.”

Traendly, Ryleigh Butler and Elisia Sonsalla all added goals in the second half for the Raptors. Kylie Taylor, Shaylee Carter and Iris Fukushima each had assists.

Goalkeeper Savannah Gray (three saves) and the Rivendell defense earned the shutout. Goodwin singled out Butler for her play in the midfield to help the Raptors keep the clamps down on the Phoenix.

“We had a really promising first half, but we didn’t really put our stamp on the game early,” Sharon coach Andy Ruddell said. “The second half was disappointing. Our energy wasn’t good enough, and we made simple mistakes that Rivendell capitalized on.”

Ruddell praised the defensive effort of Phoebe Quackenbos and the attacking play of Avry Loftus, who had two of the three Sharon shots on goal.

Sharon (1-7-0) visits White River Valley on Thursday. Rivendell looks for three in a row when Green Mountain visits on Friday.

Windsor 6, Mill River 0

NORTH CLARENDON, Vt. — Elliot Rupp had three goals and two assists for the Yellowjackets (3-6-0) in a much-needed victory over the Minutemen.

“We played a great game tonight,” Windsor coach Jeff Bachey said. “Everyone seemed to have great energy and really wanted to walk away with the win. It was great seeing so many different players involved in the offense.”

Elliot Rupp crossed the 50-goal plateau for Windsor with her hat trick in this one. Audrey Rupp added a pair of goals for Windsor. Miah McAllister also scored. Holly Putnam had two assists, and Brianna Barton had one. Goalie Sophia Rockwood made four saves to earn her first varsity shutout.

Windsor hosts Springfield on Friday.

Leland & Gray 3, White River Valley 1

SOUTH ROYALTON — Jillian Barry scored for the Wildcats (6-3-0) in a tough battle with the Rebels.

“I’m really proud of the girls today. They really stood strong and kept playing our game,” WRV coach Kim Prestridge said. “We had some really great opportunities, but unfortunately they didn’t get into the back of the net for us. The girls are giving their best every time on the field.”

Keeper Ellie Prestridge made nine saves for the Wildcats, who will host Sharon on Thursday.

North Country 5, Thetford 1

THETFORD — The Panthers fell to 2-6-1 with the loss at home.

Maddie Powers scored for Thetford, which plays at Spaulding on Friday.

Twinfield 2, Oxbow 0

PLAINFIELD, Vt. — The Olympians (5-3-1) couldn’t keep pace with the host Trojans.

“Twinfield controlled the game,” Oxbow coach Dan Thomas said. “We struggled to hold possession, but had a couple decent chances. This is a game we need to try and just bounce back from.”

Thomas praised the play of keeper Makenna Simmons for limiting Twinfield to just a pair of goals. Oxbow visits BFA-Fairfax on Friday.

Fall Mountain 5, Mascoma 0

WEST CANAAN - The Royals dropped to 1-10-0 with the loss to Fall Mountain (7-4-1). Mascoma visits Belmont on Friday.

Boys Soccer Lebanon 8, John Stark 1

LEBANON — Ryan Oliveira had two goals to lead a balanced Raiders attack against the Generals.

Simon Amaro began the scoring in the seventh minute, converting with assists to Oliveira and Krists Putans. Daniel Mladek and Angus Hall added goals before the half to give the Raiders (10-1-0) a 3-0 lead.

Oliveira added a pair of goals in the first five minutes of the second half to put an end to any remaining drama. Griffin Auch, Birhanu Harriman and Tommy Wolfe then had goals to close the book.

Wolfe, Hall and Harriman added assists. Keepers Easton Wykes and Will McGee had just one save between them. Lebanon visits Pelham on Friday.

Woodstock 2, Fair Haven 1

WOODSTOCK — The Wasps (5-4-0) got a pair of goals in the final 20 minutes of the first half and held on to beat Fair Haven.

Ezra Lockhart set up both goals, the first with a cross to Alec Smail in perfect position for the goal. Lockhart then assisted with a free kick that found Declan McCullough for a tap-in from close range.

“The team dug deep when they needed to and created enough chances to put the game to bed,” Woodstock coach Rob Stainton said.

Keeper Michael LaCroix had four saves for the Wasps, who will host Otter Valley on Saturday.

Rivendell 2, Bellows Falls 0

ORFORD — With patience and persistence, the Raptors (7-3-1) unlocked a packed Terrier defense to post the win.

Chris Pierce potted his own rebound to get Rivendell on the board. Derek Vogelien’s one-on-one conversion served as a clincher. In between, Jamion Gilbert anchored a defense with wingbacks Keo Halmartell and Harry Molesworth that kept BF from testing the Rivendell net.

“Bellows Falls played a nice game; they packed the box, which negated our fast-break offense,” Raptor coach Kevin Brooker pointed out. “Hats off to them for really giving us fits.”

Rivendell next plays on Oct. 15, hosting Twin Valley.

Stevens (5-3-0) visits Laconia on Thursday.

RUTLAND — The Hurricanes (7-1-0) kept the Ravens (0-8-1) winless.
