Jan. 28, 2010

After recovering from a 1-3-1 pothole, the Champlain Valley Union High girls hockey team carried an overall 10-3-1 record and two straight victories in Wednesday evening’s contest against South Burlington High at Cairns Arena.

The game was scheduled for after press deadline. The Redhawks had nipped the Rebels 5-4 in the third game of the season.

CVU’s latest triumph came Friday, an 8-4 bopping of visiting Burr and Burton Academy of Manchester.

The offense was sizzling as KK Logan and Hannah Johnson each scored two goals and Molly Howard fired in one score and assisted on four others. It was Howard’s 23rd lamp lighter of the season, while Logan’s two goals boosted her tally total to 14. Amanda Armell scored her fifth goal in the last five outings while Alyx Rivard and Sasha Gunther also scored.

CVU outgunned the Bulldogs 49-18. Nicole Sisk blocked 14 shots in the Redhawks’ cage.
