The 9-0 Champlain Valley Union High boys hockey team reached the halfway point of the regular season Wednesday night with a trip to St. Albans for a session with Bellows Free Academy. The game was after the Observer’s press deadline.
More time on the state’s asphalt slabs comes up Saturday with a trip down Route 7 to 5-2-1 Rutland High at 6 p.m.
Then the Redhawks have a week off until Jan. 18, when they are home to rival Essex High, 6-2 going into Wednesday’s action.
CVU’s latest win was a 7-0 bopping of visiting North Country Union last Saturday at Cairns Arena.
Freshman Thomas Samuelsen led the potent Redhawk attack—17 goals in the last three games—with a pair of scores.
Elliott Mitchell, Ryan Keelan, Hoyt McCuin, Will Bernicke and Cam Rivard also lit the lamp for CVU.
It was the third shutout of the season for coach Mike Murray’s combine.
