SWANTON — It took until the final seconds for the outcome to be decided, but Milton scraped past Missisquoi Valley Union in a 2-1 win Friday afternoon.
Milton started the game off strong by capitalizing on the Thunderbirds' slow start. After a pair of successive strikes by the Yellow Jackets in the first and second quarters, MVU found themselves down by two heading into halftime.
For the remainder of the game MVU pushed hard for the equalizer, but Milton’s goalie, Emma Philbrook, and defensemen Tristen Duy, (who made a timely stick save on the goal line) led the charge to victory.
Yellow Jacket field hockey is now 1-1 this season. The team plays next at 4 p.m. Tuesday versus U-32 in Montpelier.
