Seahorses Blank Flacons in Matinee Match-up

May 6, 2012

NEWPORT–Even though the score board (while it was still on) read 10-0 in favor of the visitors, it really did not describe the play of the Falcons' baseball team on Saturday.
North Country played solid defense and they had a great attitude, but South Burlington was able to get runners on base and find a way to bring them home.
"We didn't play that badly," said coach Brian Bonvechio. "There were no glaring mistakes, they just had some balls fall in that were not particularly well hit, and we did not get those hits."
