On Monday, the Redhawks will travel to Middlebury Union High for a rescheduled contest, set to begin at 4 p.m.

Top goal finders Tuesday were Nick Hart (four) and Jake Marston (three) as CVU used an efficient second half to roll past the winless Seahorses (0-8) by a 14-7 margin. Marston also notched two assists and boosted his season goal total to 14.

Lawrence Dee and Taylor Gingras each tallied twice, with Dee helping out with assists three times and Gingras twice. The twosome has 21 goals apiece for the campaign.

Robbie Dobrowski, Justin Beaudry and Cody Litchfield had singletons for the winners. Eric Palmer and Sean Keenan combined for five saves in the CVU cage.

Last Friday, Griffin Brady and Beaudry were the clutch guys for the Redhawks in a hair-raising, 10-8 home victory over a motivated Mount Mansfield Union High squad.

Brady snapped an 8-8 deadlock with 2:15 remaining in regulation and Beaudry added another score with 51 seconds left to insure the victory.

Dee had four goals and three assists in the contest while Gingras added three goals and two helpers.

Palmer kicked out 14 Cougar shots on a busy day in the net.

Ian Shaw fired three goals for upset-minded Mount Mansfield.
