Reb-Hawks keep the wins coming
Unbeaten (4-0-1) in their last five games, the South Burlington High-Champlain Valley Union girls hockey Reb-Hawks played host to Middlebury Union High Wednesday (after the Observer’s press deadline) at Cairns Arena.
On Saturday, the Reb-Hawks will travel to Jay Peak’s Ice Haus Arena to meet North Country Union (6:15 p.m.), a team that nipped them 3-2 at Cairns Arena Jan. 4.
This past Saturday, Sarah Fisher had a blast, launching four goals and setting up three others as the Reb-Hawks laid a 9-4 licking on visiting Missisquoi Valley Union. The victory hiked the season mark to 8-6-1.
Rachel Pitcher, who recently switched from defense to right wing, unloaded a pair of scores while Molly Dunphy netted a goal and assisted on two.
Courtney Barrett had a goal plus three assists and Casey Johnson lighted the red lamp once.
Courtney Peyko and Erin Church shared duty between the pipes with Peyko accounting for 16 of the duo’s 20 stops.
