North Country will look to even up their record as they play host to MMU this Saturday at 10:00 AM in the teamsâ€™ home opener
SOUTH BURLINGTONâ€“ Despite a strong effort from rookie goaltender Danielle Gabucci, the Falcons field hockey team dropped their first contest of the season by the score of two to nothing to the Rice Green Knights.
"We played awesome, very defensively," said Coach Chantelle Bouchard, "Rice is a very tough team."
After a Megan Simpson goal was disallowed in the first half due to contact with a foot, Rice's Erika Gonyaw would score the official opening goal of the game on a penalty corner after time had expired in the first half.

ORLEANSâ€“The second game of the season didnâ€™t follow the same script as the first one did, as the Ranger boys fell to the Lamoille Lancers by a 3-2 score.
The Rangers came out of the gate strong as Josh Thibault corralled a Caleb Royer throw-in and banged it in the back of the net for a 1-0 Lake Region score, just 24 seconds into the contest. But the rest of the contest wouldnâ€™t be as easy for the Rangers. The Lancers would score twice in the first half to go into halftime leading by a score of 2-1.
