Girls soccer team moves into second half of campaign 9/25/08

Sept. 25, 2008

Almost a week removed from its last outing, Champlain Valley Union High’s youthful girls soccer team rolled into the second half of its 14-game schedule on Wednesday with a home game against Colchester High.

Then the slate gets busy with a trip to South Burlington High on Friday for a 4:30 p.m. game, followed by a 4 p.m. home contest with Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans on Tuesday.

In getting through the first half of the season with a 5-2 record, the Redhawks scored 13 goals while giving up but five.

The losses were 1-0 battles against the powerhouses — Essex High on Sept. 10, and last Thursday at unbeaten Burlington High. The Seahorses kicked nine shots at CVU goalie Emily Sackett, who knocked out eight of them. Burlington’s defense limited the Redhawks to just a pair of shots on goal.

    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.
