April 23, 2009

Coach Julie Sloan and her Champlain Valley Union High girls lacrosse team will be eying their first victory of the campaign Saturday when they entertain the Rutland High Red Raiders at 11 a.m.

The youthful Redhawks are off to an 0-2 start following a 15-6 loss last Wednesday to defending state champion Middlebury Union and an 11-6 defeat Friday at Burlington High.

Junior Erika Gobeille and sophomore Lizzy Betz each knocked in a pair of goals in the Burlington game while sophomore Amanda Kinneston and junior Hillary Reichert added singletons.

Goalie Micheala Gobeille had eight saves.

In the Middlebury contest, Gillian Shelley, Michaela Cornbrooks, Erika Gobeille and Kinneston had the CVU scores.
