Oct. 21, 2010

With each contest important to playoff pairings, the Champlain Valley Union High field hockey team returns home Friday to close out the regular season against Route 116 neighbor Mount Abraham Union High.

The Eagles will be hoping to repay the Redhawks for a 2-1 nipping CVU handed Mount Abe two weeks ago in Bristol.

The Redhawks took a 6-3-3 season mark to South Burlington on Wednesday for their second test against the undefeated Rebels. The game was scheduled for after press deadline.

In a rearranged contest Saturday due to wet field conditions in Hinesburg, CVU went to Middlebury and for the second time this season wound up in a deadlock with the Tigers, this time 1-1.

Following a scoreless first half, Louise Gibbs popped home a goal to give the Redhawks a 1-0 lead, Kathryn Maitland assisting.

The tally held up until there was 1:37 left, when Middlebury’s Sara Higgins notched the equalizer.

CVU out shot the Tigers, 5-3.
