BOW, N.H. — Despite playing its fifth game in six days, the Hanover High field hockey team knocked off Bow, 2-1, on Monday.

Winning for the third time in the last week, the Bears (6-3-0) once again got a key goal from German exchange student Josie Laabs, this time a third-quarter tally that proved to be the winner.

Janina Li opened the NHIAA Division II game’s scoring during the second quarter, but Hanover fell into a tie before intermission.

“I am so impressed with their work ethic and commitment to each other,” Bears coach Jean Essex said of her players, touting Eva Bell in particular for her play at forward and on defensive corner plays.

Hanover, which received four saves from Reilly Loughman, hosts archrival Lebanon at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Lebanon 2, Mascoma 1

LEBANON — Mackenzie Ray scored twice and Lindsey Stark and Payson Fowler-Thorsen earned assists and the Raiders improved to 5-4-1.

“We’ve been working on the fundamentals, and it was great to see those executed today,” said Lebanon coach Amanda Valliere.

She praised Mikayla Thornton for a fourth-quarter defensive save on the goal line, Ray for a tip on the winning score and Ashlee Blashock for her assertive play.

Lebanon is at Hanover on Wednesday night.

BOYS SOCCER White River Valley 2, Sharon 0

SHARON — Dieter Seiling and Brayden Russ scored, Finn Bailey posted an assist and defenders Zach Armstrong and Donovan Craven led the defensive effort for the Wildcats (3-4-1).

“This was our best game of the season so far,” said WRV coach Alex Montano. “We were patient with the ball and smart without it.”

Sharon dropped to 1-6-0, its lone victory coming over White River Valley on Sept. 15. The Wildcats host Twin Valley (5-1-1) on Tuesday, their fifth contest in eight days.

Stevens 2, Fall Mountain 1

LANGDON, N.H. — The Cardinals (2-9-0) snapped a six-game losing streak and will host Bishop Brady (7-3-2) on Wednesday.

GIRLS SOCCER Brattleboro 2, Woodstock 0

WOODSTOCK — The Wasps fell to 5-3-0 while playing without leading scorer Isabel Konijnenberg, who was attending a scholarship dinner.

“We had our chances,” said Woodstock coach Greg LeBella, whose 14-3-1 team reached the Vermont Division II final last season with a dozen seniors. “We’re playing with a lot of first-year varsity players that are growing up day by day.”

Woodstock hosts Hartford on Wednesday.

Fair Haven 9, Hartford 1

FAIR HAVEN, Vt. — The Hurricanes trailed, 2-0, at halftime before the Slaters (7-0-0) pulled away.

“The first 40 minutes were the best we’ve played all season,” said Hartford coach Jeff Acker. “Little by little, we’re starting to figure things out and put the pieces together.”

Freshman Sadie Mullen scored her first varsity goal for Hartford (1-6-0), which visits Woodstock on Wednesday.

GOLF Cardinals second on home links

CLAREMONT — Stevens (8-19) came up a few strokes short of victory during its regular season finale at the Claremont Country Club.

The Cardinals’ top scorers were Aubree Herzog (21 points), Cedric Allen (14), Ian Gersberg (13), Justin Demers (11) and Lydia Redman (10).

Team scores: ConVal 60, Stevens 59, John Stark 45, Sanborn 32.
