Colchester Comes on Late, Hand Falcons First Loss of Season

January 8, 2013

NEWPORT–The North Country Falcons' girl's basketball team managed to hang with the Colchester Lakers for two and two-third quarters before the visitors pulled away in the Lakers 45-33 win on Monday night.
"The biggest picture that affected us tonight was the fact that we could not get the ball inbounds on out of bounds plays," said coach Christiane Brown. "Our offense was also very hot and cold. Sometimes we could run it, sometimes not. When we ran it we looked good, when we didn't run it and it became more of a one man show, it was not a very fluid offense."
