ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. — Hartford High star Caroline Hamilton surged past the career 100-goal plateau as the Hurricanes girls lacrosse team added another blowout win to what is shaping up to be a memorable season. The Canes dominated host St. Johnsbury on a perfect Tuesday afternoon, 17-4, to improve to 8-0 on the season.

Hartford built an 11-2 lead by halftime and saw a balanced scoring attack overwhelm the hosts. Elliot Rupp led the way with five goals and two assists. Addy Cadwell added four and four, while Hamilton finished with three goals and an assist. Hamilton, a senior, now has 101 goals and 34 assists in her career — this without a sophomore season in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Goalie Sarah Howe and the Hartford defense deserved as much credit as the offense for this win, according to coach Heather Hartford.

“It was an outstanding game by Sarah in net. The defense was solid and was able to shut down a strong St. Johnsbury offense. We had beautiful chemistry on offense and in the transition game,” she said.

Chloe Jensen and Beth Dobrich each had a goal and an assist for the Canes. Elsie Davis had a goal, and Sophie Howe had one assist. The Canes will host Vergennes-Mount Abraham on Thursday at 6:30 p.m.

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION — Colin Vielleux needed just 98 pitches in a complete-game gem to beat the Slaters.

Vielleux struck out 13 while allowing just one walk and three hits. Battery mate Drew Martin threw out two baserunners to further help stifle Fair Haven. The Canes scored a run in each of the first four innings.

The Canes (3-6) host Brattleboro on Thursday.

Spaulding 10, Thetford 2

BARRE, Vt. — The VPA Division II Crimson Tide scored six runs in the fourth inning to break this one open, handing D-III Thetford (5-2) the loss.

Ryan Malloy was 2-for-3 with a RBI single and a double for the Panthers. Mitchell Parkman had a RBI single. The Spaulding rally was keyed by three walks and three errors by the Thetford defense.

Softball Oxbow 17, Harwood 0

MORETOWN, Vt. — Anastase Bourgeois tossed a shutout and the Olympians scored eight runs in the seventh inning to put this one on ice.

Bourgeois allowed just four hits and didn’t walk a batter while fanning 18 in a dominant showing in the circle for the O’s. Bourgeois helped her own cause, going 3-for-5. Hadlee Allen, Alexa Kosakowski, Bourgeois, Lily Lahaye, Darcy O’Connell and Maggi Ellsworth all had RBIs in the seventh inning.

Oxbow did not commit an error, something that had coach Chuck Simmons as excited post-game as the great pitching and offensive showing.
