BELLOW FALLSâItâs nice to be able to roll along unimpeded during your regular season. The North Country Falcons have for the most part enjoyed that. Most coaches will also tell you learn more from a loss or a stern test than you do winning.
That was the case Saturday as the Falcons got themselves out of a contest that they very well could have loss. NCU came up big with a late game defensive stand and a big play offense as they got by a good Bellows Falls Terrier team 20-18.
ORLEANS â Lake Region jumped out early against the Danville Indians, but it took their 3rd overtime session of the year before the Blue and White could walk away with the 2-1 victory off the foot of the teamsâ leading scorer, Tyrah Urie.
PLAINFIELD -- The Craftsbury Academy Chargers squared off against the Twinfield Trojans and walked away emptied handed, as they were blanked 3-0. Coach Mike Ruetz said that his team, âplayed really hard and physical.â And that his team was, âdetermined to get the victory, but that luck, just isnât on their side.â A penalty kick, on a questionable shoulder-to-shoulder contact call, 5 minutes into the contest gave the Trojans an early 1-0 lead and shifted the momentum in their favor.
RICHFORD â After suffering a narrow 1-0 defeat to the Hazen Wildcats, the Lake Region Rangers got back to their winning way Thursday afternoon, beating the Falcons of Richford by a score of 7-0. Tony Stuart lead the Lake Region scoring attack with 2 goals; while Caleb Royer, Kyle Perry, Josh Thibault, Corey Whitten, and Brian Mosher each found the back of the net once for the Blue and White. Alex Beauregard recorded his 2nd shutout of the year as the Rangers improve their record to 5-4.
