Field hockey squad angling for playoff seed

CVU closes regular season against Mt. Abe

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.

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
