Vermont Division 1 Top 5
|5||Burr & Burton||5||12||3||0|
No. 1 BFA-St. Albans won’t complete the in-state portion of its schedule unscathed. Spaulding saw to that as it became the first Vermont school to take points from the Bobwhites this winter with a 1-0 OT win on Saturday.
BFA is likely to be in an ornery mood as it looks to get back on track this week with home games against Champlain Valley Union (Wednesday) and U-32 (Saturday).
No. 2 Essex sailed past South Burlington Saturday, 7-2 in its lone game. The Hornets face a busy upcoming stretch as they visit U-32 Wednesday prior to home games against Spaulding (Friday) and Rutland (Saturday).
No. 3 Spaulding bumps up a notch following that upset of BFA. The Crimson Tide takes on two Top 5 opponents this week, hosting Burr & Burton Wednesday and trekking to Essex Friday.
No. 4 Stowe enjoyed a productive week, shutting out both CVU (4-0) and Rutland (2-0). It’s a light week for the Raiders, who head to U-32 Monday for their only game.
No. 5 Burr & Burton continues to impress in its first D1 season. The Bulldogs took a bite out of both U-32, 4-3, and Middlebury, 4-1, this past week. They head to Spaulding Wednesday and face South Burlington at home Saturday.
