NASHUA, NH – The Hanover High golf team apparently wants to let NHIAA Division I know that they are heavily involved in the hunt for the state championship.

Hanover swept a four-school game over the Nashua Country Club’s top nine on Thursday afternoon. A day after having another game with Bedford at Manchester CC blasted by storms, HHS knocked out a team ahead of them in the DI (Dover) standings to go 10-2 this season.

As has been the case all season, Hanover gathered their point streaks to claim a three-stroke victory over the Green Wave (5-1) and a five-stroke verdict over third-place host the Bishop Guertin (8-10). Hanover’s Spencer Lawe shared second place individually with BG’s Connor Bouvier and Max Riordan at 1 over par 37. Teammate Casey Graham was two shots away from 39. Dylan Jopp and Andrew Cahoon both shot 41 for HHS, Cam Dwyer and John Hill each carded 42 and Adam Goodney finished with 43, which bodes well for Hanover with the state tournament coming up next month.

Carys Fennessy of Dover won the medal with an under 35.

Hanover is bound for Bretwood Golf Course on Monday to meet Exeter and welcome Keene.

Team scores: Hanover 201, Dover 204, Bishop Guertin 206, Nashua North 217.

VOLLEYBALL Hanover 3, Pelham 1

PELHAM, NH – An unbalanced third set victory gave Hanover (3-2) the momentum to end a 25-23, 19-25, 25-9, 25-23 loss to the Pythons.

Hanover’s serve-to-receive game set the table for the win, coach Megan McFarland said. Josie Hall, Natalia Somoff and Lilly Clapp anchored the backline, with Esther Hacker and Darien Ray also starring. Talia Daft closed the game with a solid serve in the last two sets.

Hanover visits John Stark on Monday.

FOOTBALL BOYS Woodstock 2, Otter Valley 1 (OT)

BRANDON, VT – The Wasps “got away late,” coach Rob Stainton noted, but took the opportunity to claim their first win of the season.

Dominant in possession but not on the scoreboard, Woodstock (1-2-0) made up for a 1-0 deficit at halftime. Zach Martsolf-Tan led Alec Smail’s corner two minutes from regulation time to force extra time. Ezra Lockhart put the win in the Wasps pocket with a free kick after three minutes of overtime.

“In the second half a deserved victory,” said Stainton.

The Wasps host White River Valley on Monday.

GIRLS FOOTBALL Blue Mountain 2, Oxbow 1

BRADFORD, Vermont – The Bucks responded to Oxbow’s tying goal with the winner two minutes later to beat the Olympians (2-1-0).

BMU opened the scoring eight minutes after the start of the second half. Oxbow equalized by Emma Parkin in the 63rd minute, set up by Hadlee Allen. But the O’s gave up soon after to give the green light to the Bucks.

“We struggled a bit today,” said Oxbow coach Dan Thomas. “I think having to postpone the game (Wednesday) without training because of the bad weather hurt us. Possession has favored BMU tonight, which may be in part due to the pressure of this being our first game at home. We created a lot of opportunities tonight which bodes well for the rest of our season, but unfortunately we were only able to capitalize on one of them. ”

The O’s entertain Missisquoi on Saturday.

Springfield 2, Hartford 1

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION – Sophie Howe and Olivia Chase both scored their first points as hurricanes, the culmination of a loss for the Maxfield Sports Complex to the Cosmos.

Hartford (1-4-0) visits Brattleboro on Monday night.

FIELD HOCKEY Bellows Falls 4, Windsor 0

WINDSOR – The Yellowjackets (1-3-1) moved closer to the VPA Division I Terriers in the second round, halving BF’s offense.
