Feb. 12, 2009

The Champlain Valley Union High girls hockey team will close out the regular season Saturday in Barre, carrying a two-game win streak when it laces up the skates for a 2 p.m. clash with Spaulding High.

CVU was nipped 2-1 by the Crimson Tide at Cairns Arena in mid-January.

The Redhawks lifted their record to 10-7-2 Tuesday night with a 3-0 victory at Stowe High. Amanda Armell, Molly Howard and Lizzy Betz fired home the goals for CVU. Maggie Ryan logged a pair of assists.

Goalie Nicole Bonneau had 16 saves in notching her fourth shutout of the season.

Howard, who had a four-goal outburst in the Hawks’ 10-4 victory over Middlebury Union High last Wednesday, now leads CVU goal producers with 17. Armell, who also scored in the Middlebury victory, has 13 tallies.
