A couple of weeks ago I made the announcement that the Monday Morning Hot List would now be called just the Monday Hot List. I just felt with the research involved and needing one morning during the week where I didn't need to get up and write that this was the right move.
Last week however I wasn't able to get the hot list out because I was on the road every night covering "Lights Week" in Granville. So, today the Monday Hot List, formerly the Monday Morning Hot List is back. All I need now is times to design a new logo.
Let's take a look at who was hot this week in high school sports.
-Let's start at my alma mater with Hartford soccer. Nate Fiske was on fire the last week. Fiske scored seven goals in two games. He found the back of the net four times in the Tanager's win over Doane Stuart. In the game before that Fiske recorded a hat trick in a 3-0 win for Hartford over Corinth.
-Proctor's Isabel Greb and Jenna Davine accomplished something very rarely seen. The duo for the Phantoms each had a hat trick, accounting for six goals in their team's victory over Sharon Academy.
-The Poultney girls soccer team snapped a two game losing streak last week with a 6-1 win over Long Trail. Kait DeBonis had four goals and an assist for the Blue Devils.
-Lake George girls soccer had a huge week in the ADK. The Warriors defeated Hadley-Luzerne to stay perfect in league play. The Warriors then turned around and won a battle of unbeaten teams against Bolton-Warrensburg to take control of the ADK race.
-Phil Severy of Mill River football helped lead his team over Poultey on Homecoming Weekend. Severy had four TD runs and returned an intercepton for a score.
-Speaking of Bolton-Warrensburg, when the Eagles shutout Salem 4-0 goalie Hope Sherman recorded her seventh shutout of the year.
-I saw the Bolton-Warrensburg boys team for the first time last week and they were impressive. That may actually be an understatement. B-W has an explosive attack and lots of balance across the pitch as they stayed undefeated.
-Samantha Petteys of Corinth had a nice match against Granville. Petteys had 17 points, 17 aces and five assists in the Tomahawks win over Granville.
-Fair Haven's girls soccer team remained unbeaten at 6-0 with a hard-fought 4-2 win over Woodstock. Brittney and Elizabeth Love had two goals each for the Slaters.
-Speaking of the Slaters, Joe Buxton had another big night Friday night. In Fair Haven's win over Mount Mansfield. Buxton passed for three scores, ran for one and picked off a pass for the Slaters.
-Kudos to Salem-Cambridge field hockey for ending an eight game losing streak to Granville last Wednesday. Kady Crosier scored the game-winner with 52 second to play. Lexi Cary also scored. Claire Toleman and MaryKate McPhee had assists and Brailyn Wright was billiant in goal.
-Fort Ann's Paige Trzaskos scored three goals in the Cardinal's 9-0 win over Granville. Also, two Fort Ann players
Ella Gadway and Brieanna Garner scored their first varsity goals.
-Lake George remained perfect in volleyball last week and all extended their lead over top challenger Argyle by sweeping the Scots 3-0. The Warriors now have a two game lead over Argyle. Shannon Starratt had 28 assists for Lake George. Evie Burke had 17 digs, Grace York 15 digs and Maddie Burke11 kills.
-Hartford got two goals from Cody Baker and another from Ryan Morrow as they claimed "The Jug" game against Argyle. Ray Harrington and Aiden Swezey had assists.
-The Granville-Whitehall football team was awarded for their hard work and touch early schedule as they earned their first victory as a program 26-0. Matt Barlow had two scores for Granville. Troy Austin had a touchdown run and Brent Perry recovered a fumble in the end zone for a score.
Evan Day had a monster game in Cambridge-Salem's football win over Greenwich. Day ran for four touchdowns and rushed for 137 yards on 13 attempts.
-Warrensburg-Lake George won their fifth game in a row with no defeats, topping Stillwater 54-18. Brody McCabe and Landon Olden both went over 200 yards rushing. McCabe rushed for 289 yards and three touchdowns on 31 carries, and Olden added 206 yards and two scores on 14 rushes.
