Adversity, by nature, forces a change of direction. In team sports, those obstacles either push a team closer together or drive it into chaos. In the case of the 2021 Enosburg boy’s soccer team, it would have been easy for the talented squad to fall off the deep end. But after accusations of abusive behavior put a spotlight on the Hornets, who in turn became victims of online vitriol from people outside the program, this Enosburg team drew even closer and put its best foot forward. Following all the drama throughout the season and a semifinal played without spectators due to the abuse allegations, Enosburg arrived at Maxfield Sports Complex on Saturday afternoon aiming to upset top-seeded Green Mountain and claim its first championship since 2006.
