The Redhawks raced out to some immediate momentum and never looked back in Saturday’s playoff clash.

CVU senior Angelos Carroll broke free for a 75-yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage, and the three seed handled sixth-ranked Middlebury 35-12 for a spot in the semifinals.

Champlain Valley is on to its first semifinal appearance since 2016. The Redhawks will travel to Hartford to face the second-seeded Hurricanes on Friday, Nov. 5 at 7 p.m.
