WINDSOR — Ah, sweet revenge.

The Windsor High girls basketball team avenged its first loss of the year on Thursday night, rolling over visiting Brattleboro in dominating fashion, 51-26.

Windsor senior Elliot Rupp led all scorers with 21 points, and senior Reese Perry pulled down 17 rebound to go along with eight points.

Senior Peyton Richardson and sophomore Sydney Perry had seven points each. Perry had 10 boards and Richardson five steals.

A 23-7 halftime lead grew to a 20-point lead by the end of the third quarter (40-20). The Colonels knocked the Jacks from the ranks of the unbeaten with a 41-35 victory on Jan. 6 in Brattleboro.

Windsor (11-2) is home to Leland & Gray Saturday.

MVCS 49, Woodstock 42

WOODSTOCK — Senior Hayley Goodwin was unstoppable for the Eagles, netting a game-high 37 points in a win over the Wasps.

Goodwin had 13 field goals, including three three-pointers, along with eight foul shots and 10 rebounds in the win. Her teammate, Rachel Horner-Richardson added seven.

“They played a triangle and two on RayRay (Horner-Richardson) and Hayley most of the game, and it frustrated us,” said MVCS coach Chris Goodwin. “Fortunately, Hayley was able to take over offensively in the second half. I would say she shot about 80% from the field in the second half and was able to create her own shot using some timely screens.”

For Woodstock, Senior Emma Tarleton had 14 points, sophomore Mikala Myers nine and senior Lara Tarleton seven.

MVCS (7-3) is at Oxbow Saturday. Woodstock (5-7) travels to White River Valley Saturday.

White River Valley 39, Mt. St. Joseph 33

RUTLAND — Get off a cold bus in frigid temperatures and expect a cold start. That was the predicament the Wildcats found themselves in, trailing after one quarter and at the half (25-19 in the latter case) before rallying past the Mounties.

“We got off a cold bus and played cold to start,” said WRV coach Tim Perreault. “Once we got into our rhythm, we were able to get some offense from our defense. The team worked hard to hold them to just eight second-half points.”

White River held a one-point lead after three quarters, 30-29, en route to the win.

Sophomore Tanner Drury was 100% from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter (5-for-5) and finished with 12 points for WRV. Senior Ella Perrault had 10.

White River Valley (7-3) is home to Woodstock on Saturday.

U-32 42, Oxbow 41

BRADFORD, Vt. — The Olympians lost a tough one after leading by six at halftime.

Senior Alexa Kosakowski had 18 points for Oxbow, and senior Emma Parkin 10.

Oxbow’s lead at the break became a three-point deficit after three quarters (33-30), and they fell just short in the last eight minutes.

Oxbow (4-7) plays at home against Mid Vermont Christian on Saturday.

Thetford 62, Randolph 16

THETFORD — The Panthers had no trouble against the Galloping Ghosts, who remain winless on the year.

Thetford built an early lead, shutting down Randolph in the first half. Senior Taylor West had 12 points, sophomore Whitney Lewis 11 and junior Madi Mousley and senior Macey Smith offered 10 each for the Panthers.

“My girls are starting to get their legs back on track,” said coach Eric Ward of his team, which had a three-week layoff due to COVID-19 protocols. “We changed some things as the game progressed.”

Thetford (5-3) is at Lyndon Institute on Saturday

Lebanon 42, Milford 26

MILFORD, N.H. — The Raiders were led on the offensive end by seniors Catherine Cole with 20 points and Ella Longacre 14, and Lebanon got a strong defensive game from senior Molly Smith and sophomore Sara Belk.
