New England Roundup: Vermont

Practice for this year’s Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl won’t begin until July 28, but what was already a steep climb for Vermont has become even steeper.

Vermont, which hasn’t beaten New Hampshire in the all-star football game since 2000, recently had two players opt out of the game: wide receiver Mike Triller (Rutland) and wide receiver Mike DiMambro (Essex).

VermontTriller won’t participate because he’s scheduled to play baseball at Clemson next season, and DiMambro accepted a track and field scholarship from the University of Rhode Island.

“I guess [DiMambro] was getting a little bit of heat [from Rhode Island] about playing in the game,” Vermont coach Jim Provost said. “We’d like to have both of them, but we had replacements within half an hour, so we’re at 36 strong.”

DiMambro caught 39 passes for 609 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. His 19 career TD receptions rank second in school history. Ben Price (St. Johnsbury) has replaced DiMambro on the Vermont roster.

Triller caught 37 passes for 630 yards last fall. Lance Elithorpe (Mount Anthony) has replaced Triller.

This year’s game will be played Aug. 6 at Macleay-Royce Field in Windsor, Vt. New Hampshire stretched its winning streak to 10 games by posting a 34-20 victory last summer and leads the series 42-13-2.

Provost served as the head coach at Rice Memorial for 14 seasons, and completed his third season at Champlain Valley Union last fall. His Redhawks lost in the 2009 Division II championship game, and reached the Division II semifinals in 2010.

Provost also served as Vermont's head coach for the 1990 Shrine Game. New Hampshire posted a 35-0 victory that year.

“I’ve tried to run the ball against them and that didn’t work,” Provost said. “Whatever the plan is it boils down to mistakes and turnovers. It would help if we could find a way to keep New Hampshire from scoring a lot of points.

“I don’t see us playing a lot of kids two ways, but we do have a couple kids we’d like to see on both sides of the ball at some points.”

Vermont fans couldn’t even look at the glass as half full following last weekend’s Twin State lacrosse games.

VermontThe Vermont girls dropped an 18-11 decision to New Hampshire, and then the Vermont’s boys staged a late rally but fell to New Hampshire, 13-10.

Each game was played at Hanover (N.H.) High School and featured players who graduated from high school earlier this year.

A Vermont victory was within reach in the girls game, but New Hampshire outscored Vermont 9-2 in the final 12 minutes.

Mount Mansfield’s Kim Liberty and Burr and Burton’s Sawyer DeVries each collected two goals and two assists to lead the Vermont offense. Vermont also received two goals from Chelsea’s Michelle Upham, Mount Anthony’s Alyssa Amos, and Burr and Burton’s Piper Ferrone. Burlington’s Anne Barker scored Vermont’s other goal.

Vermont’s Sara Till of Rice (12 saves) and Chelsea’s Morgan Tullar (11) each played a half in goal.

Burr and Burton’s Dave Miceli served as Vermont’s head coach. He also coached the 2000 team.

Hollis Brookline’s Hanna Mazzola, Merrimack Valley’s Erin MacLean and Winnacunnet’s Julia MacVane netted three goals apiece for New Hampshire. Mazzola also had three assists.

The Vermont boys played from behind most of the afternoon. New Hampshire built a 12-5 lead at one point.

Spaulding’s Tory Chouinard led Vermont with three goals and three assists. Champlain Valley’s Lawrence Dee added three goals and two assists.

Ben Adams (Essex), Dakota Engberg (BFA-St. Albans), Nick Schmell (Woodstock) and Abel Warden (Lamoille) each scored a goal. Adams also collected three assists.

Dave Trevithlick, who led Champlain Valley to the Division I title this season, served as Vermont’s head coach.

Erik Kelly (three goals) and Tom Auger (two) led the New Hampshire offense. Vermont’s Eric Palmer (CVU) and Sam Polis (Hartford) made seven saves apiece.

New Hampshire, which led 5-3 at halftime, has won 17 of the 19 games played in the series.
