Reichert’s tally sends CVU Redhawks to Division I title PDF Print E-mail

The Champlain Valley Union High School boys hockey team had been knocking on the door.

The second-seeded Redhawks burst through Saturday night with a 2-1 win over top-seeded Essex in the Division I state championship game at Gutterson Fieldhouse, shedding their runner-up label and halting the Hornets’ three-year reign.

Sophomore forward Robbie Dobrowski connected on a first-period wrister and senior Tim Reichert broke a 1-all deadlock with a breakaway finish midway through the second as CVU avenged a loss to Essex in last season’s final and collected the trophy after finishing second three of the last five years.

“Amazing,” CVU senior forward Ben Soll said. “It’s been my dream since the first year I stepped on the team. Last year was devastating after losing it at the end. It was great to come back for a little revenge.”

Attacking from the opening faceoff to the final horn, CVU swiped its second Division I title and first since 2002 while shattering Essex’s hopes for its seventh crown in 10 years.

“Last year, we kind of felt like it was nice to be here, but it left a bad taste in our mouths,” said Reichert, who wiped away any residue of that 4-2 defeat when he buried a breakaway with 7:13 remaining in the second period, a back-breaker that came just 2:33 after Essex knotted the score.

After being forced to claw back from a two-goal deficit for a 3-2 win over Spaulding in the semifinals, CVU was determined to set the tone early Saturday, outshooting Essex 9-3 in the opening period.

The Redhawks were rewarded with 6:23 left in the first period when Dobrowski corralled Soll’s drop pass, used a pair of Essex defenders as a screen and beat Essex goalie Evan Russell (14 saves) to the top-right corner. Sam Spencer earned the other assist on the fast-break tally.

“They outworked us in the first period,” Essex coach Bill O’Neil said. “We had to get the next goal; we had to put more pressure on them; we had to go to the net.”

Essex’s chances weren’t as abundant as CVU’s, but the Hornets cashed in on their only power play 5:16 into the second. Thomas Dvorak’s innocent dump toward the net from the blue line caromed off a defender’s skate and found Bryce Currier on the right post. The junior forward buried the offering to square the score at 1.

The lead didn’t last long, not with Reichert reeling in a long outlet from Chris Howard for the decisive breakaway, which he converted into a 2-1 advantage, deking to the left and wedging a backhand inside the post.

Accused financial adviser found dead

SHAFTSBURY, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say a financial adviser accused of stealing from a client has been found dead.

The body of Mark Stevenson, 55, of Bennington, was found Wednesday at Lake Shaftsbury.

Stevenson, who operated a business called Wealth Management International, was accused of embezzlement and grand larceny after a man told police he suspected Stevenson had stolen from his deceased father. On Sept. 2, Stevenson pleaded not guilty and was released on conditions.

Detective Helaine Gaiotti would not say how Stevenson - who also coached field hockey and lacrosse at Mount Anthony Union High School - died.

Brian Bonin scored two goals as United Christian Academy defeated Concord, 3-0, in a Division IV boys soccer game at Gardner Park Monday.

Up 1-0 with just 12 minutes to go, Crusader goalkeeper Daniel Saaman came out to take a shot away, but only got a piece of it. As the ball trickled toward the goal line, Wes O'Donnell cleared the ball to preserve UCA's lead.

About two minutes later, Bonin hummed the first of his two goals on net from the goalie's right – 25 yards out – that trickled through the goalie's hands, giving the Crusaders a 2-0 lead.

The Lake Region girl's soccer team showed off their speed and athleticism this afternoon against the Vikings of Lyndon Institute. The Rangers tallied three first half goals and added two more in the second half to take an overwhelming 5-1 victory. "If our skill catches up to our athleticism we will be tough to beat," LR coach Brad Urie said. Today it looked like their skill was catching up quickly.

The two teams shared opportunities in the opening minutes of the contest but it was Lake Region who would strike first. Just over seven minutes into the contest a handball gave Lake Region possession about 30 yards out from the LI goal. After a pass off the indirect, Paige Wells bounced one over the head of LI keeper Shauna Poole and into the back of the net.

Cameron Cummings rushed for 87 yards and two touchdowns as defending Division II state champion Spaulding defeated host North Country, 32-0, in the season opener for both teams Friday night.

It was a stalemate early, with neither team able to establish a rhythm on offense. The Falcons had 30 yards of first-quarter offense; Spaulding had just six yards. During the first quarter, it was obvious Falcon quarterback Aaron Grondin, a returning 1,000-yard rusher, was hurt. Grondin would come out for good after running for a first down on fourth-and-one late in the quarter. He would finish the night with nine yards on three carries.

Playing field position early, the Crimson Tide took over on the Falcon 34 following a punt. After an apparent fourth-down stop, North Country was called for roughing the passer and Spaulding had new life and a first down at the Falcon 13. Three plays later, Cummings took it in from seven yards out and the Crimson Tide kept momentum the rest of the way. The extra point was good and Spaulding led, 7-0, with 8:32 remaining in the half.

Sophomore Cris Buckles set the Falcons up nicely, returning the ensuing kickoff to the Tide 49. Another sophomore, Fred LeClair, followed with a 19-yard run. But the Falcons turned it over. Spaulding responded with a 71-yard drive which ended with Zach Dessureau finding Nick Patton for a 15-yard touchdown pass with 4:06 remaining in the half.

 All-Star basketball player Candon Rusin will not return in the fall to Twin Valley High School.

Rusin, who will be a senior, and his brother Connor Rusin, who will be a sophomore, said during the weekend that they have enrolled at Topsail High School in Hampstead, a suburb of Wilmington, N.C.

"We are moving. We're down here as of now," said Rusin, a two-time Burlington Free Press All-State first team selection.

The 6-foot-3 guard, who has drawn interest from several Division I colleges, including the University of Vermont, said the move to North Carolina will slow the selection for a basketball scholarship. He said Topsail coaches have been in touch with some Division I recruiters from Southern schools.

"The coach here has a lot of connections," Rusin said.

Rusin said both he and his brother, also 6-foot-3, worked out with the Topsail team. They also got to play for Topsail at a team camp and hit it off well when meeting the other players. The school has about 950 students compared to 240 at Twin Valley.
