Border Country Sports-September 12th
Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Report, I'm Keith Harrington.
Normally I would be posting the Monday Morning Hot List this morning. Never fear! I will still have the list of who was hot in high school sports this week later, but for now we actually have games to report on. That's right, between some games being played on Sundays due to a shortage in officials and the Cambridge Girls Soccer Tournament we actually have games to tell you about from yesterday.
Cambridge Edges Corinth to Wear Tournament Crown
Cambridge broke a scoreless tie early in the second half to nip Corinth 1-0 to claim the crown in the Cambridge Girls Soccer Tournament Sunday.
Mia Alpy scored what turned out to be the game-winner off a cross from Sam Crandall.
Goalie Lexi Peterson and her defense made the lead hold up. Peterson made five saves including a game-saving stop late in the contest to preserve the victory.
Cambridge is now 3-0 on the season.
Hadley-Luzerne Wins Consolation Game
Hadley-Luzerne salvaged a little success for the weekend, rolling over Granville 7-0 in the Cambridge Tournament consolation game.

Mill River Edges Otter Valley in Sunday Football
Mover over NFL! You have company! Due to a shortage of officials in Vermont some high school football games are being forced to be played on Sundays. That was the case yesterday as Mill River edged local rival Otter Valley 12-7 in a low-scoring affair.
A key to te game was the Otters double covering Mill River standout Mason Boudreau after his dominant performance a week ago.
The tight defense on Boudreau forced someone else to step up and get things done, and the Minutemen got just enough.
Mill River got a pair of touchdown passes from Anthony Cavalieri. Cavalieri tossed a 25 yard scoring strike to Toby Pytlik. He also had a six yard TD pass to Pytlik.
Otter Valley had a potential game winning pick six called back due to a penalty.
An interception by Taylor Patch clinched it for Mill River.
Pytlik finished with 65 rushing yards and 49 receiving yards.
Phillip Severy had 60 yards of rushing for the Minutemen. Cavalieri passed for 105 yards.
Caleb Whitney threw for 117 yards and rushed for 48. Keevon Parks had 36 yards on the ground.
Whitney scored the oly Otter touchdown on a one yard run.
Mill River is now 2-0. Otter Valley is 0-2.
