Foes of the Division 1 champion Champlain Valley Union High boys’ soccer team last fall (last three autumns, actually) stacked their defenses against the Redhawks’ striker Shane Haley, usually to no avail.

The now-graduated senior just scored and scored including the winning goal in the overtime title match.

The New Hampshire Lions Twin State All-Star team got a taste of Haley Saturday when it met Vermont in the annual contest at Franklin Pierce College in Rindge, N.H. For the Granite State, it was a bitter pill, as the swift Haley booted home three goals to lead his teammates—including CVU’s Noah Lieberman—to a 5-2 triumph.

The victory pulled Vermont to within 17-14-8 of New Hampshire in the overall series.

The host state did win the girls contest 1-0 for a 17-10-4 edge in their series.

CVU’s Taylor Goldsborough and Kate Raszka were among Vermont midfielders, while Lily Harris was in goal.
