Defending Division 1 champion South Burlington High took the rubber match and with it a ticket to the semifinals Friday afternoon when the Rebels ended the Redhawks’ season with a 1-0 victory.

CVU finished a solid campaign with an 8-3-4 mark. The ‘Hawks had lost 3-2 at South Burlington but had nipped the Rebs 2-1 at the Hinesburg hillside nest during the season.

A late penalty corner Friday led the South Burlington’s game-winning goal with 28 second remaining in regulation, Courtney Barrett knocking the ball into the cage.

For the game shots on goal were even at four apiece.

“We had a couple of good chances, but it just didn’t work out,” CVU coach Kate McDonald told the media.

    I am writing in response to Mr. Hoxworth’s article on transportation costs for the poor in Vermont. I would like to suggest further research on this topic before we simply just give another handout or tax credit. The poor, may, have a higher disproportionate burden on their transportation costs than the wealthier residents of Vermont; however, they also have a lower disproportionate burden on taxes and housing. Pick your evil.
    We can simply just give every poor Vermonter an energy efficient car, gas card, free tuition, renter’s rebate, etc.…but the only way out of poverty is through the combination of education, hard work, and discipline. Education and degrees are not handed out or purchased; a person has to EARN them. This seems to be the only way out of poverty—sorry, there are no shortcuts.
    If we continue this trend of enabling, our entire state will be a welfare state.
