South Burlington handed CVU their first loss of the season this past week, defeating the Redhawks 2-1. Patrick O’Hara fired the deciding goal, taking a pass from teammate Rakesh Subedi and lacing it into the top left corner of the Redhawk’s net. The contest is a rematch of last year’s semifinal match-up, when the Rebels defeated the Redhawks before moving on to win the Division 1 state championship. Last week’s contest could easily be a preview of a coming playoff matchup; the Redhawks fell to 10-1 while the Rebels improved to 9-2. Tyler Ayers made eight saves in the victory.

South Burlington’s Mike Flaherty rebounded a failed corner kick and turned it into his first goal of the season, helping the Rebels defeat St. Johnsbury 2-0 this past weekend. Patrick O’Hara added an insurance goal on a header off a corner kick from teammate Amza Izza to secure the Rebel’s lead. Tyler Ayers made four saves in the game in preservation of South Burlington’s fourth straight shutout victory. With the win, South Burlington improves to 10-2 on the season.


South Burlington’s challenging season on the football field failed to get any better this past week, as the Rebels got blown out by Colchester 47-0. Unable to effectively move the ball or slow down the Lakers, the Rebels found themselves in a 33-0 hole by halftime, and things failed to improve in the second half. South Burlington is still looking for its first win of the season, and is running out of time to do so as the Rebels fall to 0-7 with only a road game next Friday against Essex remaining on their regular season schedule.

Field Hockey

South Burlington stopped Burlington 3-1 this week. The Rebels got a boost from goals by Kate Hall and Katie Young, before the Seahorses were able to cut into the South Burlington lead just minutes into the second half. Casey Johnson added a goal in the second half to extend the Rebels lead and put the game out of reach for the Seahorses. Liz Sargent made four saves in goal for South Burlington to help the Rebels hold onto the win and improve to a stellar 8-1 on the season.

The Rebels got caught up in a defensive struggle against Mt. Abraham over the weekend, which ended in a 0-0 tie. Liz Sargent made five saves in the game, and the Rebels extend their record to 9-1-1 on the season.
