Coach Dave Trevithick’s 2013 Division 1 lacrosse rulers will enter the postseason as the number one seed in the always tense hunt for the 2014 championship.

The Redhawks, 14-1, drew a first round bye and are scheduled to defend their hillside ground Friday in a quarterfinal test against the winner of a preliminary contest between ninth-seeded 5-9 Mount Mansfield Union at eighth-seeded 6-9 Essex High. The Mount Mansfield-Essex game was postponed until Thursday.

In the final regular season game Saturday and with top seed possibly on the line, the Redhawks rallied in the second half to slip past an energized Middlebury Union High squad 12-11 at the Hinesburg lax pad.

With time running down and the score deadlocked at 11, Matt Palmer netted the deciding goal with just 26 seconds remaining in regulation. It was his second tally of the contest.

Elliott Mitchell chalked up three scores while Griffin DiParlo, Dylan Schaefer and Alex Bulla joined Palmer in the two goal club. Ryan Keelan had a singleton.

CVU held a 22-17 edge in shots on goal. Middlebury’s Keenan Bartlett bagged five scores for the Tigers who held a 9-4 lead at intermission.

    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.
