BFA-Fairfax Sweep Season Series from Lady Cats

FAIRFAX – BFA-Fairfax remained atop the Division III standings as they handled the Hazen Union girls’ soccer team for the second time this season last week, dropping them to 1-5-1 on the season.

Raegan Decker scored two goals and added two assists to power the Lady Bullets past Hazen at home last Wednesday 6-0. Ava Ardovino also scored twice and assisted on another, giving her six goals in the two match-ups with the Lady Cats this season. Reagan Eastman and Leigh Brown chipped in with a goal apiece and Mikayla Tobey made two stops to earn the shutout. Ella Renaud and Madison Kaiser combined to make 15 saves in the loss for Hazen Union. It was the fifth shutout of the season for the BFA-Fairfax defense as they improved to 7-1 on the year, with the offense outscoring their opponents 49-4 over that stretch.

“Fairfax wraps up a very challenging part of the schedule for us and we’re ready to start the second half of the season against a lot more evenly matched teams. We’ve got some goals of success that we’re looking to make a real push to achieve the next six matches, starting with Winooski this week, and hopefully setting ourselves up for success in the playoffs,” said head coach Harry Besett.

The Lady Cats hosted Winooski on Tuesday and will welcome Missisquoi Valley to Hudson Fields on Friday.

by Ken Brown

ENOSBURG – Two-time defending division III state champion Enosburg raced past the Craftsbury Academy (CA) boys’ soccer team for the second time this season last week, dropping them to 2-4 on the season.

Danny Antillon scored four goals and assisted on four more to lead Enosburg to a 10-0 road win over the Chargers last Wednesday. Landon Paulson also found the back of the net for the Hornets as they built a 4-0 halftime lead and never looked back. Silas Kane earned his third shutout of the season as Enosburg improved to 8-1, outscoring their opponents 50-13 over that stretch.

“They are just a very good team. Some of our eighth graders had a really good match, including Kosmos Gletsos. Silas Hunt had a nice match as well, executing well on some set pieces and free kicks throughout the day. Even though we lost, we still had some great plays, played as a team, and we’re looking forward to the week ahead,” said head coach William Garske.

The Chargers traveled to Richford on Monday, will stay on the road against Winooski on Wednesday, before welcoming BFA-Fairfax to town on Friday.
