Boys basketball returns home Saturday12/24/08


Dec. 24, 2008

After journeying deep into the Northeast Kingdom on Tuesday for a tilt at St. Johnsbury Academy, coach Scott Bliss and his Champlain Valley Union High boys basketball team will be on the familiar home court Saturday for a 12:30 p.m. meeting with Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans.

Tuesday’s game was set to be played after press deadline.

The Bobwhites entered this week with a 2-4 mark, one of the losses handed to them by the Redhawks, a 75-52 thumping in the season opener in St. Albans.

This past Friday night, CVU’s team became unwilling members of a growing club, victims of the rampaging 7-0 defending Division 1 champion Burlington High squad. The Redhawks succumbed to Burlington by a score of 71-42. In their Burlington quarters, the Seahorses bolted to a 38-22 halftime lead and seldom looked back.

The 3-2 Redhawks were paced by Ryan Poirier with 10 points, while Chris Bunbury flipped in eight.

    I take frequent walks in my neighborhood and surrounding sidewalks/roads on Industrial Avenue and Rt 2-A and occasionally see what appears to be a dog-poop bag, nicely tied, but simply left there in the road or on the sidewalk. I would like to remind dog-walkers that this is not appropriate. Please carry it off.

    Thank you for meeting your legal responsibilities.
