JAY–Despite playing with a bad back, Taylor Morley had a goal and an assist as North Country rallied to salvage a 2-2 tie with the Rice Green Knights on Wednesday evening.
"From the end of the second period on, it was our game, and I think with a little more puck-luck we would have won in overtime,” said coach Claude Paul. “That is how I want to see us play, the way we did in the third period. It was good to see them come back and get a positive out of a negative start."

January 8, 2013

NEWPORT–The North Country Falcons' girl's basketball team managed to hang with the Colchester Lakers for two and two-third quarters before the visitors pulled away in the Lakers 45-33 win on Monday night.
"The biggest picture that affected us tonight was the fact that we could not get the ball inbounds on out of bounds plays," said coach Christiane Brown. "Our offense was also very hot and cold. Sometimes we could run it, sometimes not. When we ran it we looked good, when we didn't run it and it became more of a one man show, it was not a very fluid offense."
