JAY â€“ Savannah Alberghini-Giroux's goal nine minutes and fifteen seconds into the third period proved to be the game-winner as the North Country girls earned a trip to the Gutterson Field House to take on Harwood for the Division II state championship on Tuesday evening.
Falcon coach Claude Paul is excited about the win but believes his team has another gear that they can shift up to.
"I think we can step up and play even better," he said. "We were taken aback a bit by Middleburry's speed and their quick transition game."
NEWPORT CITY â€“ Anyone who has experienced a fire, even a small one, knows the devastation it can cause. Thatâ€™s what happened to a Spring Street family about two weeks ago when a fire broke out at a Coventry family home. Damage was minimal but left the homeowners with the task of cleaning up.
Thanks to Coventry Village School (CVS) eighth grade students, the family had the home refurbished quickly.
SOUTH BURLINGTONâ€“The last time North Country and South Burlington met in the play-offs at the Cairns Arena, the game went into double overtime and the Falcons came away victorious.
This time around, the game went into triple overtime, and unfortunately for the maroon and blue, the Rebels were able to avenge their 2012 loss, winning 3-2 to advance to the Division I state championship game against CVU.
Said NCU coach Andrew Roy, "They gave everything they had, and I could not have possibly asked for more, and I am very proud of the performance they gave.
WHITE RIVERâ€“Hartford got off to an 11-0 start in the first, and although Lake Region would battle back, making it 26-26 in third, the Hurricanes were just too strong, as they cruised to the 60-39 quarter-final win.
"They played tough defense, and as much as we tried to prepare the girls for it, we struggled early in the game before settling down," said LRU coach Mark Tinker. "Hopefully it is a good learning experience for the ones coming back, and an unfortunate ending for the ones that are graduating."
Aikenâ€“â€“ Kermit Philman, 53, of Newport, VT passed away on March 5, 2013 in Lebanon, NH.
