Well, it's been a busy day but I finally had a chance to sit down while watching some NFL football to put together this week's Monday Hot List (formerly Monday Morning Hot List). Being the Athletic Director at my school, Mother Nature threw a dent into my schedule this afternoon with postponing games and trying to find dates to reshedule.
Then when I finally got home it was family thing to do after family thing to do. Ugh!
Now as promised, although later than I wanted, here is the newly minted Monday Hot List!
-I begin this week with a shoutout to my alma mater Hartford Tanagers boys soccer team. The Tanagers beat Lake George 2-0. It was the first time Hartford had beaten the Warriors since 2010. It was also the first time they scored against Lake George since 2015.
-Fair Haven quarterback Joe Buxton had a monster game in a win over Lyndon Saturday night. Buxton tossed four touchdown passes in the 49-28 victory.
-The Fair Haven girls soccer team reamined unbeaten on the season. The Slaters toppled Middlebury 3-0 behind two goals from Elizabeth Love and one from Lily Briggs. Kate Hadwen had the shutout in goal. In a 5-2 win over Woodstock Briggs led the Slaters with two goals. Elizabeth Love, Brittney Love and Ayame Merkel also chipped in goals.
-The Granville field hockey team stayed perfect this week with wins over Emma Willard, Salem-Cambridge and Corinth. Raegan Swain, Natalie Williams and Haylie Barber had two goals each against Emma Willard. In a shoot out thiller against Salem-Cambridge Melissa Beaver and Lauren Bascom scored during the shoot out. Swain and Beaver scored in regulation. Against Corinth Swain, Williams and Claire Gould scored.
