While the Champlain Valley Union High girls lacrosse team unleashed a mighty offense Tuesday against Mount Mansfield Union in Jericho Center, the Cougars responded with two weapons of their own and handed the Redhawks an 18-11 defeat.
Halley Fisher knocked in seven goals and sidekick Kim Liberty fired in six to pace the 3-2 Cougars.
CVU also had a significant weapon in sophomore Amanda Kinneston, who chalked up six goals and an assist.
Ellie Beckett popped a pair of scores while Erika Gobeille, Abby Giles and Michaela Cornbrooks each added a goal.
Michaela Gobeille and Amanda Lacallaide combined for 13 saves in the CVU nets.
Last Saturday’s game at Rutland was postponed. No make-up date has been announced.
