WEST LEBANON — Griffin Auch recorded a hat trick, including the tie-breaking goal early in the third period, to lead the Lebanon High boys hockey team to a 4-2 win over John Stark.

The senior captain scored his first goal in the second to put the Raiders (5-2) ahead 2-1. His second goal gave Lebanon the lead for good, and he completed the hat trick in the final two minutes.

Senior Hunter Christian scored the Raiders’ first goal, tying the game early in the second after the Generals took the early lead. Juniors Will McGee and Cesar Salcedo each had two assists, and senior Liam Oulette and junior Andrew Dannehy each had a helper as well.

Lebanon is back in action Wednesday at home against Hollis Brookline.

GIRLS BASKETBALL Mid Vermont Christian 51, Bellows Falls 35

BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. — The Eagles dominated the middle portion of the game, outscoring the Terriers 29-13 in the second and third quarters to snap a three-game losing streak.

Senior guard Hayley Goodwin scored 28 points for MVCS (2-3). Senior guard Rachel Horner-Richardson added eight.

“Our post defense was much better and we seemed a bit more relaxed as a team,” Eagles coach Chris Goodwin said. “Definitely an improvement from our last couple of games, but we still have work to do in order to get where we need to be.”

MVCS will face White River Valley for the second time this season on Thursday.

Kearsarge 49, Newport 29

NORTH SUTTON, N.H. — The Tigers trailed by 15 after the first quarter in a loss to the Cougars.

Freshman Maddox Lovely scored 11 points to lead Newport (2-4), and fellow freshman Taylor Fellows added eight.

The Tigers host Fall Mountain on Wednesday.

CONTOOCOOK, N.H. — Sophomore guard Kiley Bundy led a balanced offensive effort for the Cardinals (5-1), who defeated the Hawks for their fourth consecutive win.

Bundy scored 12 points, junior Alyssa Paquette and senior Zahna Rice each added nine and junior Stella Lavertue chipped in with eight.

Stevens returns home Wednesday to face Campbell.

BOYS BASKETBALL Hopkinton 47, Stevens 36

CLAREMONT — The Cardinals had no answer for the Hawks’ 6-foot-9 star Brendan Elrick, who scored 31 points to help Hopkinton win this battle of the birds.

Stevens (4-2) was led by junior guard Hunter LaRocque’s 14 points, which included four 3-pointers. The Cardinals led after a quarter but could not keep pace the rest of the way.

“We battled hard, but just couldn’t find a way to deal with Elrick inside,” Cardinals coach Ray Curren said. “He just wore us down.”

Stevens is back in action Tuesday for a makeup game at home against Mascenic.

Lebanon 52, Milford 46

LEBANON — The Raiders won their fifth straight game as they got past the Spartans.

Lebanon (5-1) hosts Coe-Brown on Wednesday.

WRESTLING Lebanon has strong showing at Saturday’s Winnisquam Winter Classic

TILTON, N.H. — The Raiders had five wrestlers finish in the top 6 in their respective weight classes Saturday, led by a runner-up finish by junior Sawyer Beaulieu at 120 pounds.

Senior Sebastian Yates and junior Keegan Fredette both took third, at 195 and 285 pounds, respectively. Freshman Chris Kinne was fourth at 285 and Jon Eylander sixth at 195.

“This shows the amazing progress and the hard work each and every wrestler has put in,” Lebanon coach Chauncey Wood said. “Sawyer has some natural athleticism and abilities that you can’t coach. He’s making amazing progress in a very short amount of time.”
