NEWPORT — Freshman Taylor Fellows tied her career high with 19 points to lead the Newport High girls basketball team to a 43-28 victory over Mascenic on Tuesday night.

The Tigers (3-5) trailed early on but took the lead by the end of the first quarter and never gave it up. Fellows had 12 points by halftime, when Newport led by seven, and her team pulled away in the second half thanks to a defense that hardly allowed any open shots.

Senior Riely Skarin added 11 points for the Tigers, who travel to face rival Stevens on Friday night.

“We kept our composure tonight,” Newport coach Ross Dole said. “What I liked about tonight was our ball movement. We were driving and kicking and taking the right shots. They weren’t all going in, but we were taking the right shots tonight.”

Oxbow 48, Montpelier 35

BRADFORD, Vt. — The Olympians (4-4) pulled away in the second half to earn the win in their first game since Dec. 30.

Emma Parkin (15 points) and Maggi Ellsworth (14) paced the attack for Oxbow. The O’s came out fast, building a 15-5 lead after the first quarter, only to see Montpelier narrow the score to 22-20 in favor of Oxbow at halftime.

Oxbow’s four previous games were either canceled or postponed, creating the long break. It’s more of the same on Thursday as the regularly scheduled game against Randolph has already been postponed. The O’s will be back in action at home against Peoples on Saturday at 11 a.m.

Brattleboro 44, Hartford 34

BRATTLEBORO, Vt. — The Hurricanes (5-3) lost a tough matchup with Brattleboro on Monday night.

The Colonels put this one away with 20 points in the third quarter to lead, 42-25, heading into the fourth. Grace Gardner and Beth Dobrich each had 10 points for the Canes. Emily Wright added eight.

Hartford hosts Woodstock on Wednesday.

Boys BasketballRivendell 75, Mill River 29

NORTH CLARENDON, Vt. — Down two key players, Garrett Stever and Josiah Welch, the Raptors still blew out the Minutemen to stay perfect.

Senior guard Kyle Carter continued his pursuit of 1,000 career points with 16 for Rivendell (8-0), and junior Harry Molesworth had a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Senior guard Chris Pierce added nine points.

The Raptors got 11 steals and turned the ball over just six times.

“We played outstanding defense, which gave us plenty of scoring opportunities,” Rivendell coach Ross Convertino said. “We forced many turnovers which allowed us to get out and play in transition. We rebounded well offensively and defensively. We were able to steal possessions with our offensive rebounding and clean up many of our missed jumpers.”

Rivendell hosts Oxbow on Thursday.

MVCS 87, West Rutland 20

WEST RUTLAND, Vt. — The Eagles played a clean game to dominate the Golden Horde and improve to 6-3.

Junior forward Roman Goeppner stuffed the stat sheet with 36 points, 15 rebounds, eight steals and four blocks for Mid Vermont Christian. Junior guard Joel Roberts added 25 points, and sophomore guard Abel Goodwin chipped in with 22.

“Our guys played well moving the ball, making shots, not turning the ball over, not fouling and working hard on defense,” MVCS coach Erva Barnes said.

The Eagles host Poultney on Friday night.

Mascenic 68, Newport 41

NEW IPSWICH, N.H. — Mascenic opened the game on a 20-6 run to top the Tigers (0-7).
