Redhawks lose to BFA-St. Albans 28-14
Despite 21 unanswered points in the first quarter, the Redhawks did not go down without a fight. From the sidelines you could hear the determination to come back and win this Division I battle. A blocked BFA punt helped to set-up the first of two CVU touchdowns, ironically both CVU touchdowns resulted from blocked BFA punts. CVU running back Patrick Shea rushed for more than 150 yards and was the first Redhawk to find the endzone. Max Whitcomb was good with the extra point and the half would end with BFA leading 28-7. Steele DuBrul would add the next touchdown for the Redhawks final score. But the scoreboard didn’t reflect the amount of sweat, heart, and determination the Redhawks left on the field. “As a spectator in the CVU stands; this was one of the most exciting games I’ve seen in a long time!” A CVU fan was overheard saying.
“That was unfortunate we fell behind early,” CVU coach Jim Provost said. “But the way our kids battled back and hung in there, with how decimated we are injury-wise…I’m not happy that we lost, but I’m really pleased with our effort.”
The Redhawks prepare for Mt. Anthony at home, Saturday, Oct. 6. Kickoff is at 2 pm.
