Davis Strikes for Three as Falcons Dismantle Galloping Ghosts in 6-1 Victory

October 3, 2012

NEWPORT–On a rain soaked field, North Country played host to the Division III Galloping Ghosts of Randolph Union High on Wednesday.
While Randolph gave it all on the field, it was the Falcons, behind Devinnie Davis' hat-trick picking up the 6-1 win.
"These games we expect to win," said coach Jose´ Batista. "I thought at times we looked really good and at times we looked a little slack, but all in all it is a good win for us.”
North Country was the dominant team from the opening kick-off, although Randolph did have some moments where they controlled the pace.

Richford Rockets Roll Past Lady Crusaders 7-1

October 3, 2012

NEWPORT–Missy Hango had two goals in the first and one in the second to lead the Richford Rockets past the UCA girls 7-1 on Tuesday afternoon.
After Laura Libby nearly got free for a break-away in the game's opening minutes, Richford took over and virtually trapped the Crusaders inside their own forty for the bulk of the half.
While not particularly strong in the middle, the key to Richford's play was the ability of the forwards to stop UCA before they could get very far into the middle of the field.

BOYS SOCCER
North Country 2, So. Burlington 1
SOUTH BURLINGTON–Kody Halikas netted the game winner in the second half, breaking a 1-1 tie and giving the Falcons (2-6-1) the win over the Rebels (3-5-1).
South Burlington got on the board first in what coach James McKenny described as an awful half of soccer for North Country.
"It was like a Jekyll and Hyde kind of game for us," said McKenny. "The first half the guys were not really into it, but they came out in the second half with a much better effort."
