Local Roundup: Redhawks Knock Falcons Out of Third

SOUTH BURLINGTON -- Champlain Valley Union clinched the third seed in the Metro with a 5-3 win over North Country Union at Cairns Arena.

Ross DeLaBruere had all three goals for the Falcons.

The Red Hawks broke it open with back-to-back power-play goals midway through the second period to take a 4-2 lead.

An empty-netter provided the game with its final score after DeLaBruere's third goal cut it top 4-3 early in the third period.

It was CVU's fifth win in their last six games. With the win, the Red Hawks finish 13-4-3. The loss snaps a four-game winning streak, dropping NCU to 14-5-1 and into fourth in the standings. They could fall to fifth if Colchester (12-5-2) defeats BFA-St. Albans (8-9-2) in a 4:30 matchup at Leddy Park today.

Should Colchester win, the Falcons would host Stowe March 5 or 6 at Jay Peak. With a Colchester loss, the Falcons would earn a first-round bye and host the winner of a Colchester-Stowe game in the quarterfinals.

BFA-ST. ALBANS 48, SJA 34: In St. Albans, a strong first quarter and the balanced Comet attack were too much for the visiting Hilltoppers.

Go Green

Brigette Rankin and Casey Carbone each had 12 points for the Hilltoppers, who must win at home against second-ranked Rice on Friday night to secure a playoff berth. The Hilltoppers had snapped an eight-game losing streak last Friday with a win over Spaulding.

"I thought they were a little more athletic and quicker than us," said SJA coach Jack Driscoll. "They hit us hard in the first quarter and we didn't adjust well."

The Hilltoppers host the Green Knight at 6:45 p.m.

SJA (4-15): Jenni Laferriere 1-0-2, Molly Fried 0-4-4, Brigette Rankin 4-2-12, Johannah Driscoll 1-0-3, Margaret Fogarty 0-1-1, Casey Carbone 5-1-12. Totals: 11-FG 8-14-FT 34.

BFA (14-5): Katherine Howrigan 2-0-4, LaRose 2-3-7, Dupris 1-0-2, Kim Howrigan 2-0-4, Dillon 1-0-3, Clarke 2-3-8, King 4-1-9, Berno 3-1-7, Hilt 2-0-4. Totals: 21-FG 8-14-FT 48.

BURLINGTON 46, NCU 33: In Newport, Ajla Medic scored 17 points as the Seahorses defeated the Falcons.

"It's always tough on Senior Night," NCU coach Christiane Brown. "Emotions run high. The first quarter was an enjoyable quarter to be a part of."

It was the final home game for seniors Michaela Stanley, Anna Bingham, Desiree Coffin, and Britni Jewer. Bingham (nine points) led the team in scoring and Coffin (six rebounds) led the team on the boards.

Jewer has taken over at point guard and Stanley has continued to do what Brown calls "those little things. She's always a physical competitor out there," Brown said of Stanley.

"It's nice to have a group of ladies who have been playing together since they were six-years-old. They are going to be missed because they are quality people."

NCU is at Essex Friday at 6:30.

BHS (12-6): Georgia Black 0-4-4, Olivia Maher 3-2-10, Breanna Pidgeon 1-1-3, Ajla Medic 5-5-17, Kaitlin Garrison 2-1-5, Ilona Maher 3-1-7. Totals: 14-FG 14-27-FT 46.

CONCORD 54, CHELSEA 32: In Concord, the Wildcats all but locked up fourth place and a home playoff game in their season finale at Dickson Gymnasium. Wrapping up a stellar five varsity years, senior Kasey DeGreenia led the way with 17 points and 16 rebounds, while Kendra Darrell's three first-half 3-pointers, and nine assists by CC Chamul were also big.
