Friday’s high schools: Northampton boys lacrosse edges Brattleboro Union in overtime

Brattleboro Union made a defensive play and Northampton Alex Zadworny made them pay.

Three minutes into overtime, the Colonels defense slid to double-team Zadworny on the right side of the goal, but Zadworny fed Ben Davis across the crease and the junior attackman buried the shot from close range to give the Blue Devils boys lacrosse team a 6-5 win in Vermont Friday.

The goal was Davis’ third of the game. Zadworny had two goals and one assists, while Jared Yarde added the other goal in front of Tyler Walsh, who made 18 saves for Hamp (5-6).
