Rebels return to CVU for field hockey quarterfinal

October 24th, 2013

The Division 1 tournament pairings have decreed that the 8-2-4 Champlain Valley Union High Redhawks will have a rubber match against defending champion South Burlington High, with a trip to the semifinals awaiting the victor.

The 6-5-3 Rebels will visit the ‘Hawks’ nest for the second time in two weeks Friday (at 3:45 p.m.), where they were nipped 2-1 by CVU.

South Burlington triumphed over the Redhawks 3-2 on the SBHS turf in mid-September.

CVU is coming off its second loss of the regular campaign, 2-1, to visiting Middlebury Union a week ago, Amanda Whitbeck scoring a lone, late goal for the ‘Hawks.

Coach Kate McDonald was generally pleased with the CVU season to date.

“Going in, we had lost a lot of seniors,” she said. “We have had some great games and continued to improve.”

A win Friday will mean a return to the South Burlington turf Tuesday and a match with the winner of second -seeded Hartford’s quarterfinal against either 10th seeded Colchester High or seventh seeded Burlington High.
