Signs of snow were found out on the course with another 7” predicted to arrive later in the afternoon and temperatures never climbed out of the mid-40s.

October 30, 2011

SWANTON–The Falcons put it all on the line on Friday afternoon against the Missisquoi Thunderbirds, but MVU was just too good, topping North Country 3-0.
"They had the game of their life," said Coach Bouchard, "They knew it could potentially be their last game, so they gave it their all."
Despite losing by a larger margin than in their previous bout with MVU, North Country played a much better game. They were significantly more aggressive, and had several forays into T-Bird territory, compared to their limited time spent in the blue and white's end the first time out.
