January 11, 2014

I think the picture says it all. If you are a fan of the North Country girl's hockey program, you must be asking, can this crew do what they were expected to in the Metro?
It is up to them. If all of the pieces slide together in the correct order, then I say yes.
If not, then just remember the Falcons, because without any more players, they will not exist anymore.
Go see your favorite players in Northfield or MMU.
Maybe the move to the Metro was not the best of decisions.
You Decide.
