Hartmann Nets Two, Sinks Lady Rangers 2-1

October 17, 2012

ORLEANS–Much like the electricity in Barton and Orleans, the power went out for the Lake Region girls as they fell to BFA Fairfax 2-1.
"When you are playing against a team like Fairfax you have to have effort. You have to want the ball as badly as they do," said Lake Region coach Brad Urie. "If your intensity level does not match BFA’s, you are going to get beat every single time."
BFA has been the bench mark upon which the Lady Rangers have measured themselves against, but they lost both outings by identical 2-1 scores.

ThunderBirds Clip Falcons 2-0

October 17, 2012

SWANTON–Going up against 9-2-1 Missisquoi, the North Country field hockey team (3-8-2) gave the Thunderbirds all they could handle in a gritty 2-0 loss.
“It was a great game, cold, but very well played,” said coach Chantelle Bouchard.
Danielle Gabucci shone in the loss, stopping seventeen out of nineteen shots.
“She made a ton of great saves,” said Bouchard. “She was diving to stop the ball, you name it, she did it.”
If the season ended today, the two teams would meet each other in the opening round of the division three play-offs.

Falcons Drop Final Home Match 4-0 to Essex

October 17, 2012

NEWPORT–Essex (5-6-2) scored two goals in each half of the Falcons and Hornets match on Tuesday, defeating North Country (3-9-1) 4-0.
"We need to believe that we belong with the better teams in the state. Today we probably don't for a lot of reasons, but deep down we know we do and that we can compete with any team," said coach James McKenny.
It was a physical first half for both teams, with a total of three yellow cards issued.
Logan Fortier was issued one for pushing a guy who moments earlier trampled him, and Chris Bronson had the other for NCU.

Thibault Decides 2-1 Contest in Double OT

October 17, 2012

ORLEANS-Junior Josh Thibault blasted in a goal off a pileup in front of the Danville net as the Rangers outlasted Danville 2-1 in a contest that took two overtime periods. The scoring play came after a barrage of Ranger shots on the outstanding Indian goalkeeper Kyle Johnson.
The Rangers, celebrating senior day, played the first half without the intensity head coach Tom Evans was looking for.
Evans said afterward, ”We just didn’t work as a team. There was a lot of individual play and I thought Danville took it to us in the first half.”
