NEWPORTâ€“Despite a few lapses in play, the North Country boys soccer team gave a tremendous effort in their 2-0 loss to Colchester on Wednesday.
"We came out flat in the first five minutes of the (first) half and (Colchester) was able to knock one in, and then we woke up and finished strong," said NCU coach James McKenny. "That is the reality of the Metro, if you make a couple of mistakes, you are going to pay for it."
The opening twenty minutes of play belonged to Colchester.
NEWPORT CITY - The Newport man who stood on his roof with a gun, while an army of law enforcement officers cleared the neighborhood and worked to bring him down was found competent to stand trial. Derick Niles, 36, of Newport City was returned to the Northern State Correctional Facility Tuesday for a lack of $100,000 bail.
A report given to the court stated that Niles is competent. Neither State's Attorney Alan Franklin nor public defender Janssen Willhoit argued with the report.
