Former CVU players help UVM women take soccer tourney

Former Champlain Valley Union High player Eliza Bradley, a captain of the University of Vermont women’s soccer team, was named tournament Most Valuable Player this past weekend. Bradley helped the Catamounts capture first place in the Toronto Dominion Bank Classic at Centennial Field.

Bradley made 10 stops Sunday as UVM came from behind to tie Central Connecticut 2-2. The Catamounts earned the tournament title on the strength of having scored more goals in tournament competition.

Another CVU graduate, Emily Milbank, assisted on UVM’s first goal Sunday. The Catamounts nipped the University of Montreal, 3-2, in Friday’s opening round.
