WOODSTOCK — The Woodstock High girls hockey team may have finished the regular season on a sour note, but the top-seeded Wasps had little trouble in their playoff opener.

Junior Isabel Konijnenberg, the leading scorer for Woodstock (19-1-0), scored twice in a 19-second span in the first period and coasted to a 4-2 victory over No. 9 seed Brattleboro in the VPA Division II quarterfinals. Konijnenberg now has 30 goals in 20 games this season to go along with 15 assists.

Junior Lily Gubbins assisted on both goals, two of her three helpers on the night, and freshman Kassidy Haley assisted on the second one. Senior Skylar Haley, Kassidy’s older sister, and sophomore Gracelyn Laperle each scored in the third period for some insurance. The Colonels only put seven shots on net for the game.

Next for the Wasps is a semifinal matchup with No. 4 seed Harwood, who Woodstock defeated twice in the regular season, on Friday evening at Union Arena.
