The Champlain Valley Union High field hockey team racked up some points with a 3-0 win over Colchester on Friday, bringing the team’s record up to 4-3-1.

The Redhawks traveled to Mount Mansfield Union High School on Wednesday, after the Observer’s press time, a team they narrowly lost to on Sept. 11.

On Saturday, the Redhawks head to South Burlington at 1:30 p.m. The last game against the Rebels finished in a scoreless deadlock.

The Redhawks took on the Lakers—a team they beat 2-0 the first game of the season—on Friday, under a cold, threatening sky. Molly Dunphy sent the first goal into the net during the first half, on an assist by Kathryn Loucks. The second goal came just 40 second later, scored by Katie Arms with an assist by Molly Dunphy. The final tally came from Mackenzie Roberts, assisted by Emily O’Brien.

Keeper Evangeline Dunphy had four saves for the shutout, including a save on a penalty stroke.

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
