Rematches next for boys hockey

The 7-2-1 Champlain Valley Union High boys hockey team heads into the second half and rematch part of the season this week by traveling to Middlebury Union on Saturday, then retuning to home Cairns Arena on Wednesday to tangle once more with tough 6-2-1 Essex High.

The Redhawks topped Middlebury 3-1 earlier this season at Cairns. They got nipped 2-1 by the Hornets at Essex two weeks ago, but have won all three outings since.

Coach Mike Murray’s Hawks are coming off Saturday’s 7-0 win over Rice Memorial, which featured offensive contributions from a solid number of skaters.

Twice lighting the red lamp in the contest were Ryan Keelan and Elliott Mitchell. Cam Rivard, Kirk Fontana and Jake Garrett each notched single goals.

Alex Bulla paced the scoring helpers with three assists. Will Bernicke and Rivard each garnered two assists and Keelan had one.

Goalie Greg Talbert picked up the goose egg by making nine saves.
