Its season-opening three-game losing string snapped Tuesday with a victory at Burlington High, the Champlain Valley Union High boys basketball team can look forward to Friday night’s (6:30 p.m.) home clash with 1-2 Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans.
The initial victory of the season also marked the return to action of veteran senior forward Brad Bissonette from a bout of illness. He led the scorers with 19 points, followed by twin brother Scott Bissonette with 14 as the Redhawks rolled to a 50-40 triumph over the 1-1 Seahorses.
CVU used a quick start as a recipe for victory, grabbing a 14-4 lead by the end of the first period.
Last Friday, the Redhawks fell to Vergennes Union High for the second time this season as the unbeaten (4-0) Commodores rolled into Hinesburg for a 52-44 win.
Inside operator Lucas Aube paced CVU’s offense with 13 points.
