Fresh off two home victories in three days, the Champlain Valley Union High boys soccer team took a 9-1 record into Wednesday’s match at Burlington High School against a team the Redhawks handled 4-0 on their home grass a couple of weeks ago.

The game against Burlington was scheduled for after press deadline, and the road travels were to continue Friday when coach T.J. Mead’s kicksters meet Bellows Free Academy in St. Albans. It will be the Redhawks’ only match against the Bobwhites this year.

On Tuesday, CVU returns home for a session with Mount Mansfield Union.

Mike Clayton unloaded three goals Monday as the Redhawks bopped visiting Missisquoi Valley Union High 4-2 in the makeup of a game previously postponed. Henry Sengle notched his second tally in the past three outings.

Clayton, a junior who missed last season with a leg injury, hiked his goal total to 14 in the Hawks’ 10 contests.

CVU outshot the Thunderbirds 16-6, with Missisquoi becoming only the second team this season to put up two scores against the Redhawks.

Essex High was the other team to put a deuce on the board, doing so a week ago Saturday in a 2-1 win over the Hawks.

This Saturday, CVU turned the tables with a 3-1 triumph. Clayton, Nick Spencer and Nick Hart handled the scoring honors against the now 8-2 Hornets. Sengle and Chris Sulva garnered assists.

CVU had an 11-7 margin in shots on net.
