Late Penalty Kick Sends Colchester Past North Country

October 15, 2013

NEWPORT-Brenna McMannon's penalty kick goal with 9:15 left to play was the difference as the Colchester Lakers defeated the North Country Falcons 2-1 on Tuesday afternoon.
"Those are points we need to have as we are trying to make the play-offs, which isn't a lock, and we are trying to avoid the 16th seed," NCU coach Peter Alexander said about the significance of the loss.
The Falcons were once again without some key players, as Michaela Columbia is out for the season, Devinnie Davis was sick, and Dasha Plotnikov was inactive.

Lady Crusaders Spirits High Despite Tough Loss to Concord

October 14, 2013

NEWPORT–With Gardner Park’s carpet slick from the day's rain showers, the UCA girls hosted the Concord Wildcats on Monday afternoon.
After trailing 1-0 heading into the second half, UCA would tie the contest only to have Concord's Cecelia Chamul score on a break away with twenty seconds left in the game to give the Wildcats the win.
Normally a late goal like that would dampen the spirits of most any team, but UCA is not just any team, they are a group of girls that have worked extremely hard to better themselves as soccer players, and they were pleased with Monday's efforts.
