Dec. 24, 2008

With Tuesday night’s business in Essex complete — the Champlain Valley Union High boys hockey team was hoping to reverse the outcome of last March, in which the Hornets won the Division 1 title — the Redhawks will meet Rutland High at 12:20 p.m. on Saturday at Cairns 1 Arena in South Burlington. On Tuesday, the Redhawks will embark on a trip to St. Albans and to take on always strong Bellows Free Academy at 7:30 p.m.

The Redhawks went to Essex with a 4-1 record in tow, the lone loss a narrow 3-2 decision to Lower Canada College, the reigning Montreal interscholastic champions. The game was scheduled to be played after press deadline.

Last Wednesday, the Hawks took the measure of 3-2 South Burlington High. The CVU goals came from the sticks of defenseman Eric Robinson and forwards Ben Soll, Robbie Dobrowski and Nate Lacroix. Goalie Mark Albertson had 26 stops for the Redhawks.
