This 6:10 p.m. contest comes on the heels of Wednesday’s second meeting of the season with Essex High. The Hornets edged CVU, 3-2, in Essex Dec. 13. Wednesday’s game was scheduled to be played after press deadline.

On Saturday, the 4-4-1 Redhawks unlimbered the offense to score a 7-0 victory over Rice Memorial High. Seven girls netted goals, including Molly Howard’s eighth of the campaign. Also contributing to the tally fest were Hannah Johnson, Gillian Shelley, Alyx Rivard, Amanda Armell, Emmaleigh Loyer and Addie Peterson.

Nicole Bonneau gained her third shutout in the CVU nets.

On Dec. 30, the Redhawks fell 3-0 to the Thunderbirds of Missisquoi Valley Union High.
