SOUTH BURLINGTON-While the North Country Falcon offense has made the big headlines this fall, the rock ribbed defensive unit of NCU showed its teeth Saturday afternoon. The Falcons raised their record to 4-0 as they steadily wore down the home team and defending state champion Rice Green Knights on their turf.
NEWPORTâ€“A talent laden Montpelier team paid a visit to North Country Friday night, and defeated the Falcon girls in hard fought overtime soccer contest 2-1.
The Solons controlled play for the majority of the game with a combination of accurate passing and a mid field regroup that the Falcons had a hard time defending.
"They have a very skilled team, we knew that, and we let them cycle around mid field," said Coach Peter Alexander, "They are so quick on the ball. We are used to trying to possess, but they were right on us."
ORLEANSâ€“ Facing a highly skilled Danville team on Thursday, the Lake Region Rangers had their hands full as they were able to hold off their opposition and pick up a 2-1 win.
"To be honest, in the first half I thought we controlled the play, but were unable to change our style of play," said Coach Tom Evans.
All the scoring would take place in the first half, and Danville was first on the board when Scott Remick put the ball past Alex Beauregard staking his team to a 1-0 lead.
ENOSBURGâ€“The Lake Region girls earned a 2-0 win over Enosburg on Friday. Sarah Burnham and Tyrah Urie tallied for the Lady Rangers, and Brooke Breault had thirteen saves for the shut-out.
