The Middlebury Panthers quickly adjusted following Gorman’s goal and trucked down the field to tie it up 1-1.

The Redhawks doubled down to score 3 more points before the end of the first quarter, which was closed out by Jake Schafer scoring to put the Redhawks up 4-1.

“We played a great game. We talked well, passed well, and when it comes down to it, we made most of the shots we took on goal,” said Kyle Cahn, of the CVU Redhawks.

The Redhawks continued to play strong throughout the rest of the game, scoring 12 more points and only allowing 7.

“It was one of the more entertaining games to watch,” said Zane LaDuc, a student at CVU, “there was a lot of movement which made it enjoyable to watch”.

The Hawks’ next feast is Woodstock Union High School on Monday, April 22nd at CVU.

“We started out a little unsure of our abilities since we’d only had one other game together as a team, but within the first few points we fell into our roles effortlessly, which was surprising since half our team had never played before,” said Grace Washburn, cutter for the CVU Redhawks.

The Redhawks went on to win the second game of the tournament 14-1 against the BFA Varsity team.

“It was a really exciting time for the team to finally win a tournament, this added lots of mental strength to our team early into the season,” said Claire Rocheleau, 4th season playing for the Redhawks, “Seeing the CVU team develop [over that last four years] has been amazing.”
