JAY-Kody Halikas had two first period goals and four different players had a goal apiece as the North Country Falcons defeated the Missisquoi Thunderbirds on Saturday night.

"We had some bright spots and we had some dark spots," coach Andrew Roy said when asked of his overall impression of the game.
NEWPORTâ€“For a game that ended at 60-47, UCA's win over Cabot in boy's basketball felt a lot closer than it actually was.
Much of the game was played with UCA leading by about twenty points, but Coach Tony DeLaBruere hard a hard time believing the point differential.
"Every time I looked at the score I couldn't believe it and we were fortunate to be where we were at the end because it should have been much closer game," he said after the game.
Things got off to a slow pace, with both teams trying to find a rhythm they were comfortable with.
NEWPORTâ€“The UCA girls picked up their third win of the season, and their second over Cabot, as they won a close one 40-37.
It didn't start out too close as UCA came out on fire, scoring sixteen points in the first.
"We talked about coming out strong and it was nice to see them come out strong and be confident," said coach Molly Smith.
Hannah Piette was dealing, knocking home two from downtown and one from a bit closer.
Amy DeLaBruere continues to improve her game and she had four points, as did Laura Libby.
