Home stand approaches for CVU girls hockey team12/24/08

Dec. 24, 2008

With a 2-1-1 mark in their last four games, the Champlain Valley Union High girls hockey team will return to the ice after a week off on Tuesday, when it plays host to visiting Stowe High at Cairns 1 Arena in South Burlington.

Last Saturday, the Redhawks turned it up a notch, skating to a 3-3 tie against 4-2-1 Bellows Free Academy on the road at Perley-Collins Field House in St. Albans.

Amanda Armell fired in a pair of goals for the Redhawks and Alyx Rivard notched a singleton for CVU. Goalie Nicole Bonneau stopped 31 BFA shots in the CVU cage.

The deadlock came on the heels of Wednesday’s 5-4 win over Burlington High, in which Molly Howard had her third two-goal game of the campaign. Rivard, Maggie Ryan and Sasha Gunther also slammed home scores for the winners, while Bonneau kicked out 36 Seahorse shots from the CVU nets.
