Playoffs next for CVU boys hockey

The pairing for the Division 1 high school hockey playoffs will be finalized this week, but the Champlain Valley Union High boys hockey team took a solid step up Tuesday night with a 5-3 victory over visiting North Country Union at Cairns Arena to put a maker on the third seed.

The win gave the Redhawks a final regular season 13-4-3 record and left the Falcons at 14-5-1.

It was share the puck night for CVU as Brendan Gannon, Patrick Pattison, Jeremy Lerner, Kirk Fontana and Jack Hall all lit the lamp for the winners. Defenseman Alex Bulla paced the helpers with a pair of assists.

Greg Talbert made 17 stops in the CVU cage. The Hawks unlimbered 26 shots on the North Country goal.

The victory got CVU back on a positive track following Saturday’s 3-0 loss to South Burlington in the annual CSB Cup contest.

    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.
