The unbeaten Champlain Valley Union High boys lacrosse team hit the road for St. Albans and a session with Bellows Free Academy on Wednesday (after Observer press time).
The Redhawks return home on Saturday to meet South Burlington High in an 11 a.m. contest in the Hinesburg hills.
Coach Dave Trevithick’s defending Division 1 champs collected their fourth straight 2012 victory Friday afternoon by smoking Burlington High 18-5 at home, as eight Redhawks unleashed goals on the stunned Seahorses.
With a scoreless four minutes and eight seconds gone in the first period, Chris Bulla, Charlie Shea and Bulla again knocked in scores in a 40-second span. The explosion started CVU toward an 8-1 advantage by the end of the opening 12-minute period…and control of the game.
Chris Bulla finished with four goals and three assists, while Alex Bulla tallied three times and added a pair of assists giving the Bullas a total of seven scores and five helpers, better than some teams’ totals on good days. Christian Goulette notched four goals. Shea and Quinn Kropf each had two, while Sam Raszka, Brady Griffin and Silas Hill nailed one each. Steele Dubrul captured several mid-field faceoffs and chalked up three assists. Owen Hudson held forth in the CVU cage with eight stops.
