The Vermont Women’s Soccer League summer season came to an exciting conclusion Tuesday, Aug. 2 as four-time defending champions No. 1 Energy Legs narrowly defeated No. 3 Shenanigans 1-0 in the championship game at Tree Farm in Essex.
A tense, scoreless draw was broken late in the second half when Abby Rajotte found space inside the 18-yard box, pulling the keeper out long enough to find an open net.
Energy Legs (8-1) then held on for a frantic final 10 minutes, earning its fifth straight title in a league comprised of teams from central and nowrthwestern Vermont.
