CVU boys, girls hockey teams seeded in playoffs (2/18/10)

Feb. 18, 2010

There was little time for the 10-8-2 Champlain Valley Union High boys hockey team to regroup for the Division 1 playoffs following Saturday’s season-ending loss to Bellows Free Academy – St. Albans.

The Redhawks were seeded seventh and were slated to defend home ice against 10th-seeded Burr and Burton of Manchester Wednesday night at Cairns Arena in South Burlington.

A win would put coach Doug Hopper’s crew into a quarterfinal contest against second-seeded South Burlington High (14-6) Saturday afternoon (2:10 p.m.) at Cairns.

The 15-4-1 CVU girls drew second seed in the Divisional playoffs and will rest until Saturday when they will play host at Cairns (12:10 p.m.) to the winner of Wednesday’s contest between 10th-seeded Burlington High (3-17) and 7th-seeded South Burlington High (10-9-1).
