South Burlington defeated North Country this past Thursday by a score of 6-1. Ismail Temirov led the Rebels with three scores in the game, while Dinesh Khadka scored twice for his team. Lobsang Kenzin netted a goal to round out the Rebels scoring, as South Burlington improves to 7-5 with the victory. An aggressive South Burlington defense shut down the Falcon’s scoring attempts throughout the game, and Ben Greenstein stepped up to make two saves to preserve the win.
Middlebury handed South Burlington its first loss of the season this past Friday night, as the Rebels fell to the Tigers 42-20. Tanner Contois led South Burlington’s rushing attack, bulldozing ahead for 256 yards on the ground, including an 80 yard scoring run. The senior also hauled in 56 yards through the air and a scoring strike from quarterback Hunter Riehle. However, for the first time this season, South Burlington squared off against a team that could match their rushing attack. The Rebels biggest challenge of the day was slowing down the Tiger’s tailback Jakob Trautwein. Trautwein powered through the line for 223 yards on 23 carries, scoring on runs of 1, 8, 33, and 59 yards. As Trautwein was tearing through the South Burlington line, the Rebels continued to stymie their own offensive progress through a series of costly turnovers. A Contois-fumble shut down a South Burlington drive in the first half, while three interceptions in the second half allowed the Tigers to score twenty-nine unanswered points. Hunter Riehle made some strong throws in the first half, including a drive where the senior completed four passes for thirty-nine yards to wide receiver Cam Nolting. Nolting wrapped up the drive by hauling in a seven yard touchdown pass to give South Burlington a brief 14-13 lead. The lead was South Burlington’s only one of the game. Riehle completed 15-27 for 163 yards and two touchdowns against the three interceptions. Nolting finished with six catches for 56 yards and a touchdown. Defensive lineman Malik Hines continually pressured Middlebury quarterback Austin Robinson, and finished with two sacks in the game while providing a badly-needed spark to South Burlington’s defense. With the loss, the Rebels fall to 6-1 on the season.
South Burlington was firing on all cylinders this past Thursday when the Rebels routed the North Country Falcons 5-0. Shannon Flaherty led her team with three goals in the contest, while teammates Sarah Fisher and Cam Peyko added a goal apiece. The Rebels controlled the ball on both ends of the field and Morgan Mahar made four saves in the win. Chelsea Austin contributed two assists in the game, while Fisher added an assist. With this latest win, the Rebels snap a four game losing skid while improving to 4-8 on the season.
South Burlington fell 2-1 to Burlington on the road this past Wednesday. The Rebels and the Seahorses held a 1-1 tie until, with six and half minutes remaining in regulation, Burlington converted a penalty stroke to give them a one-goal advantage. Courtney Barrett scored for her team to give South Burlington a 1-0 lead early in the contest and Alex Warshaw made two saves in the loss.
CVU got out to an early lead against the Rebels in last Thursday’s contest, the Redhawks held on to hand South Burlington its second loss by a score of 2-1. CVU scored twice in the first half, while a strong defensive performance held the Rebels scoreless. Katerina Kacer notched a second half goal for South Burlington, but the normally-potent offensive attack could do little else against the stiff defense of the 8-1-2 Redhawks. Alex Warshaw made seven saves for South Burlington in the loss. With the two losses this past week, the Rebels fall to an even regular season record of 5-5-2.
