NEWPORTâ€“On a beautiful warm and sunny day, the North Country field hockey team played host to the Highlanders of Harwood for a rare Monday afternoon contest.
The Falcons played much better than in their previous outing against Spaulding, but still came out on the short side of the stick with a 4-0 loss.
"This is a much better game than Spaulding. They (Harwood) are a D2 team and we can walk off the field with nothing to complain about," said Coach Chantelle Bouchard.

On Sept. 24, around 7:45 a.m., the clerk at the TD Bank in Waitsfield unlocked the front doors for customers. A few minutes later, an unknown male or female suspect entered the bank and went to one of the tellers, handing the teller a note indicating the suspect had a gun and to hand over all the money.
The suspect took an undisclosed amount of money and placed the money into a black, hard leather case with a shoulder strap. A firearm was not displayed and the only communication was through the note.

SOUTH BURLINGTON-While the North Country Falcon offense has made the big headlines this fall, the rock ribbed defensive unit of NCU showed its teeth Saturday afternoon. The Falcons raised their record to 4-0 as they steadily wore down the home team and defending state champion Rice Green Knights on their turf.
NEWPORTâ€“A talent laden Montpelier team paid a visit to North Country Friday night, and defeated the Falcon girls in hard fought overtime soccer contest 2-1.
The Solons controlled play for the majority of the game with a combination of accurate passing and a mid field regroup that the Falcons had a hard time defending.
"They have a very skilled team, we knew that, and we let them cycle around mid field," said Coach Peter Alexander, "They are so quick on the ball. We are used to trying to possess, but they were right on us."
ORLEANSâ€“ Facing a highly skilled Danville team on Thursday, the Lake Region Rangers had their hands full as they were able to hold off their opposition and pick up a 2-1 win.
"To be honest, in the first half I thought we controlled the play, but were unable to change our style of play," said Coach Tom Evans.
All the scoring would take place in the first half, and Danville was first on the board when Scott Remick put the ball past Alex Beauregard staking his team to a 1-0 lead.
