More Rutland Rec soccer was played this past Saturday and a couple of updates were submitted. The 3/4th grade Proctor girls maroon got the best of Killington. Coach Cindy McKearin was able to rotate her substitutions to where the girls got to play offense and defense. It was a good strategy putting in fresh legs on offense and making it possible for each member of the team to score. Among those who scored were Madison Lee and Victoria George. Coach McKearin said the teamwork and passing were exceptional.

The 3/4th grade Proctor girls white also was victorious winning over the Rutland Rec Labs 5-3. Goals were scored by Allison Almond, Madelynn Flanders and Hannah Anderson. Miranda Martin and Emelia Tooley made several key saves in the goal.

The victories kept coming Saturday as the 3/4th grade boys beat Mill River 5-3. Zach Yarosz, Solomon Parker and Matthew Anderson each scored a goal and Conner McKearin added 2 more. Caleb Stuhlmueller hit a line drive towards the goal but it just went wide. The team played very well together.

Bottle drives and bazaars

The 6th grade class and their parents have gotten their fundraising underway in preparation of their spring trip. Start saving your returnables as they are holding a Bottle Drive on Saturday, October 29 from 9 a.m. - noon. Home base will be the PES parking lot.

The holiday is vast approaching so start thinking about the Union Church of Proctor's holiday bazaar on November 5. It will be held from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the Union Church parish house.
