The 2018 Vermont-New Hampshire Lions Cup game was played at Spartan Stadium at Castleton University on July 21. The game, which ended in a 1-1 tie, featured three Summit FC players: Ryan McKay (GK) and Keegan Bliss (D) of Rutland High School, and Ben Stewart (MF) of Burr and Burton Academy. Vermont finished the game with a long stretch of sustained pressure and several quality scoring chances. In the middle of it all was Stewart, who was honored with the 12th Player Award for the Vermont squad. Ben looked right at home on the Spartan Stadium field, where he will be playing for Castleton beginning later this year. Congratulations Ben and Go Spartans!
