NEWPORTâ€“The North Country Falcons dropped their second straight game on Thursday afternoon, losing to Mount Mansfield 5-3.
It was a close battle for the Falcons, as they struck early, jumping out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning.
MMU starter Grant McKinstrie gave up a fluky hit to Taylor Miller, then proceeded to walk five straight batters, plating the three North Country runs.
After that McKinstrie would be unhittable, fanning fifteen, including the final ten batters he faced.
NEWPORTâ€“After plating the go ahead run in the bottom of the fourth inning, a tough top of the fifth sealed the fate of the North Country Falcons softball team.
While squaring off against the Mount Mansfield Cougars on Thursday, the Falcons were playing an exciting back in forth game that saw the lead change hands off and on throughout the first four innings.
In the bottom of the fourth tied 4-4, Mariah Roberts put the Falcons up 5-4 when she scored on a past ball.
DANVILLEâ€“The Danville Indians punched across a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth and held off a Ranger rally for a 5-4 win Saturday.
Lake Region got a booming one out seventh inning double from Tyler Breault scoring Kyle Perry, who had drawn a walk to bring the Blue and White to within one run. Breault was called out trying to stretch his clutch single and appeared safe, but the bad angle call from the umpire put a big damper on the LRU rally.
Lake Regions golf team is poised and ready for the 2011 season. They are bringing back three starters from last year's team, while losing only one senior to graduation.
Junior's Matt Morin and Devin Morley, along with senior Taylor Gallup are the big three that are anchoring this years team, and with Morin already medaling in the Rangers lone tournament this season, coach Dan Lussier sees good things in his top players future.
"Matt will probably be ranked in the top five in division two by the time the year ends," said Lussier.
DANVILLE-The Lady Rangers put up four first inning runs followed by three in the third and three in the fifth to knock out Danville 13-1. Lake Region scored in every inning but the second in the contest.
The Rangers played errorless softball behind the two hit pitching of Danika Gallup.
