Redhawks crush Patriots, set sights on Rebels

After whopping the Mount Anthony High Patriots 41-0 on Saturday, the Champlain Valley Union High football team will face tough South Burlington on Saturday at 1 p.m.

Last Saturday’s win brings the Redhawks up to 4-2 for the season. The game—moved to the Burlington turf because the home CVU field could not be played on after recent rainstorms—was one of the best games of the year, Coach Jim Provost said on Tuesday.

“We had so many kids play well,” he said. “It was a game where we were able to play everybody for some quality minutes, so it really felt like a complete team win.”

Steele DuBrul racked up two touchdowns, and Pat Shea, Ryan Beaudry and Lucian Bedard brought in a touchdown each. Max Whitcomb kicked two field goals and went five for five for the extra points.

On Oct. 13, the Redhawks will face South Burlington, a team that beat CVU twice last year.

“They’re a very good team and a playoff-contending team as well, so it will be a big game,” Provost said.

Saturday’s game is slated as a home game, but Provost said the field is still not in ideal condition, and the game could be moved.
