Hurricanes Send Lady Rangers Home in D II Quarter-finals

March 10, 2013

WHITE RIVER–Hartford got off to an 11-0 start in the first, and although Lake Region would battle back, making it 26-26 in third, the Hurricanes were just too strong, as they cruised to the 60-39 quarter-final win.
"They played tough defense, and as much as we tried to prepare the girls for it, we struggled early in the game before settling down," said LRU coach Mark Tinker. "Hopefully it is a good learning experience for the ones coming back, and an unfortunate ending for the ones that are graduating."

For the boys, they fell just short in their journey to the finals, losing a heartfelt game in triple overtime to South Burlington.

North Country Holds Off Colchester, Rematch With SBHS Up Next

March 7, 2013

JAY–the North Country-Colchester quarter-final game at the Ice Haus Arena was a place where hockey cliche´s went to die.
The two goal lead is the most dangerous lead in hockey, and it is hard to beat a team three times in a row, two of the most common phrases in the game, were both vanquished as the Falcons earned the 3-1 win.
North Country played a good chunk of the game up by two goals (that's one), defeated Colchester for the third straight time this year (that's two), and now have earned a date with South Burlington on Saturday afternoon.

March 7, 2013

BHS 58, NCU 32
BURLINGTON–North Country's foray into the 2013 post-season came to a close on Wednesday night, as they fell to the Burlington Seahorses.
"We didn't win, but it is nice to be associated with a great group of girls," said NCU coach Christiane Brown.
Offense was hard to come by for the Falcons in the first half, as they managed only twelve points in the opening sixteen minutes.
Things would get betting in the second half, as the Falcons would eventually out-score the Seahorses 13-12 in the final quarter, but by then it was too late.

March 6, 2013

ORLEANS-It hasn’t always been pretty.
But it has been effective. And you are, in sports, what you are in terms of record.
With that said the Lady Rangers are a pretty good little ballclub as they advanced Tuesday thru their playoff bracket.
Lake Region withstood a late Springfield rally to advance to the Division Two quarter-finals after a 51-48 play-down victory.
LRU got 18 points from Drew Neal and some clutch play in the waning moments from senior Sarah Burnham, as the blue and white achieved their 17th win against 4 defeats this winter.

Then they ran into Kasey DeGreenia.
The Concord Wildcat forward single-handedly out-scored the entire UCA roster, going for 27 en-route to the 55-23 play-down win on Tuesday evening.
"I am very pleased with how hard the girls worked, despite the score," said UCA coach Tony DeLaBruere. "It didn't come as a surprise though, because that is how they have played all season."
UCA was led by Hannah Piette, who had 12 points, followed by Laura Libby who had five and two boards.
