Tuesday's high school playoff highlights


Top performers

* Sarah Wells, Bellows Falls: Scored four of the Terriers’ eight goals in their Division III field hockey rout of Lyndon.

* Matt Goudie, Colchester: The senior striker tallied both of the Lakers goals, including the double-overtime winner, against Hartford.

* Ella Bankert, Mill River: Struck for three goals in six minutes in the second half to help the Minutemen book the program’s second title game appearance.

By the numbers

* 0: Goals allowed by the Division III’s No. 1 Stowe boys soccer team in three playoff games (14-0, 5-0 and 6-0 wins)

* 0: Goals scored between Peoples and Williamstown during Tuesday’s Division III boys soccer semifinal before the Wolves’ advanced on penalty kicks.

* 17: Goals scored in two playoff games by the Bellows Falls field hockey team, winning 9-0 in the Division III quarterfinals and 8-0 in the semifinals to advance to the state championship.

Did you know?

* No stranger to upsets, the 10th-seeded Peoples boys soccer team won the Division III crown in 2010 as the 8-seed. Danville was the last 10-seed to win a title, claiming D-IV crown that same year.

Role reversal

* Unbeaten, top-seeded Black River will meet No. 3 Proctor in the D-IV girls soccer final on Saturday at Whitcomb — the same site where the third-seeded Presidents dethroned the undefeated, No. 1-seed Phantoms last fall.

Tweet, tweet

* “Can’t believe were going to the ship. Unreal… so glad I get to share this experience with such a close bunch of boys #lakers” –@bseaman4 (Colchester junior midfielder Ben Seaman after the Lakers’ 2-1 overtime semifinal win Tuesday)
