WOODSTOCK — The Woodstock High girls hockey team bounced back emphatically from last week’s loss to the Kingdom Blades, scoring five goals in the first period and four more in the second in a 9-0 romp over Brattleboro at Union Arena.

On four separate occasions, the Wasps (2-1) scored two goals within a minute of each other. Gracelyn Laperle, Hannah Gubbins, Lily Gubbins and Kassidy Haley all scored twice, and Isabel Konijnenberg tallied as well.

Konijnenberg also added four assists, Haley had three and Lily Gubbins and Laura Audsley each had one. In goal, Meridien Bremel faced only two shots, stopping both to earn the shutout.

Woodstock hosts rival Hartford next Wednesday in a rematch of last year’s VPA Division II championship game, which ended with a Wasps victory.

The teams split their two regular-season meetings in 2021-22.
