Milton downs Rice, 4-0

  SOUTH BURLINGTON — Milton took down the Rice Green Knights 4-0 last Saturday with help from Tatum Shappy’s hat trick. In sweltering heat that prompted a break midway through the second half, Shappy and the Yellowjackets (3-1) stayed cool and built an impressive lead while holding the hosts to just a handful of scoring chances. “We actually do a lot of conditioning during the week, we do a lot of running, so I prepare the girls especially for these conditions,” Milton coach Shawntel Burke said. “We just tried to stay positive. I did a lot of subbing with...

Girls soccer extends winning streak

MILTON — A pair of second-half goals from Tatum Shappy prevented a disaster as Milton held on for a closer-than-anticipated 2-1 victory over Mt. Abraham last Thursday. Shappy sandwiched two goals — both begun with crosses from Carlie Reen that Taylor Quintin flicked to Shappy  — around a Mt. Abe (3-5) equalizer late in the second half to help Milton (7-1) survive the stubborn Eagles. The Yellowjackets extended their winning streak to five games and have allowed just two goals in that span. “It was just a strange game because I think we were doing a lot of things...

Brown’s 37 not enough to catch BFA

A blistering start was enough to propel BFA-St. Albans past Milton on February 3, with the Bobwhites overcoming 37 Ryan Brown points and a frantic Yellowjacket comeback effort to clinch at least a share of the Lake Division title with a 77-68 win. BFA (9-8) flew out of the gate with a 23-point first quarter that left Milton (7-10) playing catch-up the rest of the night. MHS never recovered fully, though it did succeed in cutting what was at one time a 16-point deficit in the third quarter down to as few as six in the final minutes of...

Walker, MVU survive comeback bid

MILTON — Richard Walker’s career-high 32-point night was the push Missisquoi needed to avenge a home loss to Milton earlier in the month and drop the Yellowjackets in Milton last Friday, 70-64. Walker exploded for 24 first-quarter points in what was an exciting game from start to finish. Milton’s Brandon Button swished a 3/4-court buzzer-beater to end the third quarter and put the hosts in position to cut MVU’s lead all the way down to a single point early in the fourth. The Thunderbirds (9-7) pulled away late, though, thanks in no small part to an 18-for-20 effort from...

Patterson leads ‘Jackets past Vergennes

MILTON — Nineteen points from Selena Patterson led Milton to a season-high third straight win Saturday afternoon, a 51-30 triumph over visiting Vergennes. Patterson’s strong day — which included an eight-point first quarter, nine rebounds and seven steals — pushed the Yellowjackets (6-8) to a victory that was never really in question. Milton led 20-10 after the first and 26-13 at halftime, using a balanced approach around Patterson’s big day. Six of the nine players tallied points and a clearly unselfish approach guided the hosts. “We’ve really been working on that,” coach Mike LeFebvre said. “We struggled with it...
