Bulldogs fall to Spaulding

BARRE -- The Burr and Burton Academy girls hockey team was able to outshoot Spaulding during Wednesday's hockey contest, but Spaulding won the battle 4-2 behind three goals in the first period.

BBA opened the scoring less than a minute into the contest when Morgan Bazyk scored on passes from Daisy Sullivan and Lucy Bisselle.

Spaulding answered, though, with goals from Julia Ormsbee, Talia Gariboldi and Cynthia Wilkins before the period ended to give the team a 3-1 edge.

In the second, BBA outshot Spaulding 9-5 but could not find the back of the net. In the third, BBA once again outshot Spaulding, this time 10-3, and managed to pull a goal back through Bazyk on a pass from Aggie Bisselle with 3:45 to play.

The Bulldogs could not find another goal, though, and Spaulding added an insurance goal late when Jessica Scott got on the breakaway and beat Kaylie Benson to make it 4-2.

Benson stopped 13 shots for BBA, while Morgan Gosselin made 27 saves for Spauling. Bazyk, who turned 18 on Wednesday, celebrated the milestone birthday with both of the goals for BBA.

BBA falls to 10-2-2, and play next on Saturday at home against Stowe at 5:45 p.m. It will be the Bulldogs' Senior Night
