Oxbow, looking for a final win of the season to put them into Division III playdowns, fell short, losing to an always strong Stowe team 4-0. Forced into winning their final two games of the season, the Olympians downed Lyndon 4-0 in the first game. Plagued with scoring problems all year long, Oxbow followed form and couldn't pull the final game out for post season play. Woodsva/e h00h00hu WOODSVILLE-- Woodsville ended the regular season with a tie and loss for the week, Against one of the stronger teams in the State, Mascoma, the Engineers fought back in the final half for a 1-1 tie. Blue Mountain ends winless Woodsville ends season 9-3-2 Woodsville Engineer soccer team didn't match their 1981 record of 11-2, but still came out on top of the heap of area teams with the best record. The Engineers won, tied and lost a game during the past week, falling to unbeaten White Mountain, beating Newfound and tying Berlin. Woodsville, currently holding down a solid 7th place in Division A Soccer ratings will have their first playoff game on Wednesday. Orford will also be looking toward their first playoff game on Wednesday, but will not have the homefield ad- vantage as the Engineers will. Ending the season at 8-5-1, including two final game losses, the Wildcats hurt their playoff chances with their ..... shmap. They will meet one of the top teams in their division the first game. Orford posted a solid 10-4 record last year. The Thetford Panthers rebounded from a 5-7-1 record to a league winning 8-5-1 mark this year. The Panthers, boasting a strong line of veterans took the Central Vermont--South league title by winning two games on the WOODSVILLE-- The Oxbow h/hh lost to a strong So. Royalton team 4-0 earlier in the week. BRADFORD-- Two wins in the final week of the season boosted Oxbow's chance for a decent seed in the upcoming Division II playdowns. The Olympians crushed winless Randolph 9-1, holding a slim 2- 0 lead at the half. Goalie Keith Bean was playing shutout ball at the Olympian goal. Fresh- man Rod Bean, playing in the Oxbow goal the second half came up with two saves. Scoring goals were Charlie Grant with four, Charlie Barton with three and Randy Huntington and Gary Curley collecting one each. Against U-32, a strong effort by the Raiders nearly spoiled, and did delay coach Mike Callanan's 'party.' Callanan usually plays his seniors on the front line the last quarter of the season hoping they will score. Holding a 4-1 lead, Callanan made the move. Two goals later, and an ejection of an Oxbow player, the Olympian coach had to revert back to form and play his usual front line. For the final five minutes, Oxbow fought off numerous threats to preserve the win. Charlie Grant scored afford h/00h00hu ORFORD The Wildcats held the lead in both losses last week, but couldn't hold on to prosperity, losing to Lisbon 5-3 and then falling to a strong Sunapee team by a single goal 4-3. Against Lisbon, the Wildcats shot out in front with goals by Dennis Smith and Jeff Huntington, assisted by Elmer Nutter, but then fell behind 4-2. Steve Bali's goal brought the Orford squad to within one 4-3 in the final quarter. The game against Sunapee was nearly the same story, a letdown. Shawn Mason put Orford in front 1-0 and then Elmer Nutter put them ahead again 2-1. Steve Ball assisted on Mason's goal. After dropping down 3-2, prolific scorer Jeff tluntington tied the game, assisted by Bill Baker. Sunapee, however, wasn't done, and won the game with a goal at the 4:02 mark of the final quarter. Thetford hihlihts Blue Mountain's season is over. Twelve losses and no wins.

Dawn Burleson played a strong game in the Engineer nets. Lyndon Institute surprised the Engineer field hockey team by winning a close 2-1 game. The win avenged a 9-1 thrashing at the hands of the Engineers earlier. Woodsville had the better offensive showing, putting 31 shots at the Viking goal. Trish Demers opened the scoring on an unassisted goal but before the half was over Lyndon scored their two goals. The front line of Demers, Boudreault. Andrea Smith and Tracey Bumford kept pressure on the Viking goal for most of the second half but couldn't produce a score.

Without a scoring threat all year Oxbow went to the wire before putting their sticks back until 1983. The Olympians beat Lyndon 4-0 to keep their slim hopes alive. Suzy Pierson and Penny Wark put Oxbow on the right track, posting goals during a three minute flurry in the first half. Another scoring burst in the final five minutes of the game on goals by senior Jodie Pratt and Renea Gautreau gave Oxbow an insurmountable 4-0 lead. Tena Davidson recorded her sixth shutout for the defense-minded Olympians. Oxbow's fate was in Stowe's hands, and the visiting team wasn't about to let Oxbow make the Division III playdowns. The Olympians couldn't settle for a tie (already five for the season) they needed a win over a team they haven't beaten in the past three seasons. It wasn't to be a good day for Oxbow as they came up flat, scoring no goals and not recording a shot on goal against the stronger Stowe eleven. Oxbow made it to the semifinals last year after recording a 7-3-4 mark. T00ffor00 THETFORD-- The Panthers of Thetford Academy put together a win streak of five games at the end of the season; finishing up with a 10- 3-1 record and a share in the Central Vermont league field hockey title.

Thetford posted a second one goal win over the Chelsea Red Devils with a 2-1 victory, clinching a tie for the league championship. Winger Kim Wolstenholme scored an unassisted goal in the first half for the Panthers, who went into the second half tied 1-1. Needing a win, not a tie, Thefford put the winning goal on the board, Julie Tallman scoring on an assist from Anne Fetter. Becky Roberts played another strong game in goal.
