ORLEANSâ€“Thursday night it was the Peoples Academy girls team making the trip to Ranger Country to square off against Lake Region, and although it was a much closer game than the boys contest, the result was the same as the team in white came away with the 38-36 win.
But it wasn't pretty.
"Well it was a win," said Tinker dryly after the game, â€œRight now I don't have all the answers, but we've got to figure something out."
ORLEANSâ€“After finishing the first quarter tied at ten, the Lake Region Ranger boys increased their efforts throughout the rest of the game as they defeated Peoples Academy 59-50 in what ended as a fairly chippy contest.
"The boys are really pulling together, and it was a great team effort," said coach James Ingalls, "And the boys were able to hold their composure for the most part."
ESSEXâ€“The Falcon hockey girls rallied back from a three goal first period deficit to win 5-4 in overtime against the Mount Mansfield Cougars on Wednesday night.
With Tara Langmaid forgetting her jersey and her parents not yet at the game with said jersey, Briana Bocelli got the start for North Country, yielding three goals in the opening period.
"It was not a good period for us. We were sleepwalking out there," said coach Claude Paul.
It would be a much better, much more awake second for North Country, especially for defenseman Meghan Campbell.
