ORLEANSâ€“To say it has been an interesting couple of days for the 11-3 Lake Region girls soccer team would be an understatement.
As was reported on our website this past Friday, head coach Brad Urie was suspended from coaching his team for the remainder of the 2012 season.
Filling in for him since Thursday's practice was athletic director Eric Degre, who along with boyâ€™s varsity coach Tom Evans, were calling the shots on a gorgeous Saturday morning for the Lady Rangers regular season finale.
NEWPORTâ€“This past Friday, it took the Stowe Raiders (7-5-2) all of four minutes to dash the North Country girls soccer team's hopes of a home play-off game, as the Raiders scored a pair of goals in said time frame to defeat the Falcons (8-5-1) 2-1 in the regular season's closing contest.
"I thought we played really hard and I thought there were a lot of fouls called, and I know you can't blame that, but they had a lot more then we did, but that is just how the game goes," said coach Joe Batista.
