NH girls tie, boys fall in Lions Cup soccer

Courtney Benson of Hopkinton scored a goal and was named the Most Valuable Player from New Hampshire after the Granite State girls tied Vermont 2-2 in the 40th annual Lions Twin State Soccer All-Star Game at Castleton State College in Castleton, Vt., Saturday. The New Hampshire boys dropped their third straight all-star game to Vermont, losing 4-1.

Emily George of U-32 High scored the equalizer for Vermont with 1:03 remaining in the game. Benson scored the game’s first goal at the 15-minute mark from 18 yards out. Vermont’s Morgan Kathan of Black River tied the game five minutes later.

New Hampshire regained the lead 10 minutes before the halftime intermission on a goal from Sarah Carlson of Bow.

New Hampshire goalie Jessica Long of Exeter (eight saves) was presented with the New Hampshire Sportsmanship Award and teammate Katrina Holmes of Newmarket was awarded the New Hampshire 12th man award, given to the player who makes the most impact off the bench. In the boys’ game, New Hampshire MVP Samuel Binogono of Manchester Central scored the lone goal.
