Roundup: Turner's big day the key in win over CVU
HINESBURG — Stella Turner scored four times, including the game-winner in the third period en route to the Burr and Burton girls hockey team's 6-4 win over CVU on Saturday.
Turner scored her first in the opening period, assisted by Kilo Francomb, but CVU tied it with a goal from Kiley McClure.
Turner added two more in the second, one unassisted and the other assisted by KerriAnn Campbell to give the sophomore a hat trick.
But CVU scored three of their own — Payton Skillen, McClure and Sabina Brochu doing the damage — and BBA trailed 4-3 heading to the third.
Miranda Eisenman tied the game at 4-4 off a Francomb assist, then Turner scored the eventual game-winner, scoring off an assist from Campbell.
Eisenman finished off the win late with her second goal of the night on a empty-netter.
Lola Herzog stopped 18 saves in the victory for BBA, who improve to 9-7-1 and travel to Brattleboro on Wednesday.

CHICOPEE, Mass. — Southern Vermont College wrapped up its 2018-19 regular season Saturday afternoon — falling 66-47 to Elms College in New England Collegiate Conference action at Picknelly Arena.
The Blazers held a 30-20 lead at halftime and used the third quarter to garner some extra separation.
