A rematch between the 2009 Division 1 finalists Burlington High and the Champlain Valley Union High girls soccer team will close out the Redhawks’ regular season Friday at 4 p.m. at their Hinesburg Heights Nest.
CVU popped the defending champion Seahorses 5-1 just two weeks ago on Burlington High’s turf.
Before the Friday contest, the 11-1 Redhawks had some business at Essex High on Wednesday. The game was scheduled for after press deadline.
South Burlington High (6-6) tested the Red and White Monday in a contest rescheduled from Saturday. South Burlington came up short by a 6-0 tally, the Redhawks scoring three times in each half at their home field.
Amanda Kinneston notched a pair of goals, one of them a penalty kick, and Sophia Steinhoff launched one goal and helped out on two others. Shelby Hanlon, Molly Howard and Katie Parker also scored, Parker blasting her second penalty kick in the last two games. Howard and Parker also had assists.
CVU controlled the territorial play, outshooting the Rebels 16-7.
Regular CVU net minder Emily Sackett had two stops and gave way to Bryn Philbert and Sarah Monteith in the second half. Philbert made two saves and Monteith had three.
It was the eighth shutout of the season for CVU, which has outscored the opposition 51-3.
