After blowing past winless Mount Mansfield Union High for the second time in 11 days, the undefeated 6-0 Champlain Valley Union High girls basketball team had a more challenging task in the immediate future: the annual trip to St. Albans on Thursday and a clash with a veteran 4-1 Bellows Free Academy quintet.

“This is always a tough place to play,” said CVU coach Ute Otley of the BFA gym where CVU has lost the past two seasons.

After the jaunt north, the Redhawks will be off until Saturday, Jan. 19, when St. Johnsbury Academy invades Bremner Gymnasium.

In dispatching the Cougars 70-14 Monday at home, CVU actually fell behind 2-0 in the early going before hitting 10 of 19 shots in the first period to take a 20-6 edge into the second quarter, from which all hands played and scored.

The Redhawks’ defense forced 29 Cougar turnovers and held MMU to but seven hoops in 27 shots.

Emily Kinneston led the CVU scorers with 11 points, while Amanda Beatty had 10. Two freshmen, Sadie Otley and Laurel Jaunich, each notched eight points, with Jaunich adding six rebounds to tie Kirsten Bird for team high on the boards.

The theft brigade was led by Kaelyn Kohlasch, with five (also six assists), and Bird and Kinneston, who had four each.

Sophomores Lilly Devereux and Rebecca Rapacz scored six points apiece to lead MMU.

Last Thursday, the Redhawks captured a 41-35 victory at South Burlington High, their second win over the 2-5 Rebels.

Kinneston was the scoring pacesetter with 14 tallies as CVU took a 33-19 lead into the final reel and then withstood a furious Rebel rally.

The unbeaten JV team rolled to a 53-22 triumph.

    I take frequent walks in my neighborhood and surrounding sidewalks/roads on Industrial Avenue and Rt 2-A and occasionally see what appears to be a dog-poop bag, nicely tied, but simply left there in the road or on the sidewalk. I would like to remind dog-walkers that this is not appropriate. Please carry it off.

    Thank you for meeting your legal responsibilities.
