LYNDON CENTER — A pair of giveaways proved costly for Lyndon Institute on Wednesday night at Fenton Chester Arena.

Woodstock scored three times in a two-minute span in the third period as the Wasps (8-2-2) rallied for a 3-1 victory in a key Division II tilt. The first two tallies came off of Viking turnovers in front of net.

The loss snapped an eight-game winning streak for the Vikings (10-4), who continued to be snake-bitten by Woodstock. The Wasps toppled LI in last year’s semifinals, beat the Vikings in the state final in 2018 and is the only team Lyndon has not beaten in three seasons.

Woodstock won the first meeting this winter, 2-0, on Dec. 21.

Daniel Lanoue scored the Vikings’ lone goal, his team-leading 14th of the season, on a rebound in the second period.

Charles Greene, Andrew Gubbins and Owen Coates collected the goals for the Wasps.

Sawyer Goodwin had 16 saves for LI; Hunter Greene made 18 for the Woodstock.

Lyndon hosts Burlington on Saturday at 3 p.m.

GIRLS HOCKEY

MISSISQUOI 3, BLADES 2: In Highgate, a shorthanded goal by Missisquoi Valley’s Brianna Parent with 1:12 left in regulation was the clincher as the Kingdom Blades fell to 8-5 in D-III.

“We dominated the game at times. We showed great composure and moved the puck quickly and effectively,” Blades coach Jim Davis said. “However, we have to credit MVU for their continued aggressive hockey style of play.

“Unnecessary penalties continue to be our biggest issue. Playing shorthanded hurts our overall game and playing strategy. It was great to see Liza Morse break out with a goal. And Julia Ballinger was a strong two-way player with excellent defense and a goal.”

Clara Andre drew the assist on Morse’s goal, while MVU goalie Madison Conley made 18 saves. Making 14 was the Blades’ Sarah Tanner.

Next up is a Saturday 4:45 game at the Nelson Washington Arena in Brattleboro with the 6-7 Colonels. The Blades beat them 3-1 earlier this season.
