No. Country 4, MVU 0
HIGHGATEâMikaella Doran picked up her first shut-out of the year and Crystal Moss scored again as the North Country girls earned their tenth win of the season by besting Missisquoi Valley Union on Monday night.
"We were not as sharp as we were on Saturday and we definitely played down to MVU's level," said NCU coach Claude Paul. "We looked good for spurts and we looked bad for spurts but we got the win."
Jenna Moss opened the scoring in the first period, converting a feed from Whitney Bernier.
ORLEANS-Clutch free throw shooting late in the fourth quarter helped the Lake Region Rangers pick up a hard-fought 57-53 win over the Peoples Academy Wolves on Monday night.
"The boys played gritty," said LR coach James Ingalls. "They played excellent defense, boxed players out and hit free throws when they needed to. We are really coming around at the time of the season that we need to be coming around."

SOCHI-Tuesday was a bit disappointing for Barton ladies Ida Sargent and Susan Dunklee.
While both girls were in good positions to make a medal run, it eluded both of them this time.
While most of the Kingdom was still sleeping, Sargent began her qualifying race in Sochi.
In her Olympic debut she skied a 2:39.8 race. This time landed her in 26th place and guaranteed her a spot in the quarter-finals for the Ladies 7.5km Sprint Freestyle.
Later in the morning, Sargent skied in heat three of the quarter finals. She came in fourth for her heat with a time of 2:39.05.
