NEWPORTâ€“The North Country field hockey Falcons played a very defensive game against Stowe on Saturday, but came up on the losing end of the 1-0 contest.
"The past three games have been defensive ones for us," said coach Chantelle Bouchard. "Stowe always has a good record, so we knew we had to stay with that style of play today."
In the first half, Stowe (5-3), although not on the top of their game as of late due to illness, showed why they usually field a strong club, controlling play and spending roughly eighty-five percent of the time in the North Country end.
Lake Region 4, Oxbow 1
BRADFORD - Billy Cashin provided the eventual go-ahead score on a unassisted tally 10 minutes into the second half as the Lake Region boys soccer team knocked off Oxbow 4-1 in a wet Saturday contest to put a damper on the host team's homecoming weekend.
Shaquille Urie gave the Rangers a 1-0 halftime lead with an early score on a pass from Anthony Wright.

Editorâ€™s note: Filmmaker and arts impresario Jay Craven has been telling his story of the day and night he spent trying to get Chuck Berry to honor his contract and perform in the Northeast Kingdom. He continues his story this week, where he left off â€” getting Chuck Berry to finally agree to get in his car and drive to the St. Louis airport. But time was very tight and Jay has to promise heâ€™d come up with an additional $2500 to motivate Berry to make the trip to Lyndonville.
Time was wasting and Chuck Berry was still negotiatingâ€”even after I agreed to his terms.
NEWPORT CITY â€“ Thursday, Judge H.E. VanBenthuysen held Daniel Greenwood, 36 of Orleans, on $100,000 bail for a variety of felony and misdemeanor charges.
Greenwood pled not guilty to two felony burglary charges, a charge of accessory after the fact, a misdemeanor charge of illegal possession of a drug and a misdemeanor charge of violation of conditions. The state dismissed without prejudice three felony burglary charges.
ORLEANSâ€“Shaquille Urie scored arguably the prettiest goal of the season for Lake Region, heading the ball past Hazen's Murphy Simmons seven minutes into the second half to secure the Rangers' 2-1 win over the Wildcats on Wednesday afternoon.
Lake Region got off to the hot start, and if it wasn't for Simmons heroics in goal, the score would have been much more lopsided.
His first big save came against eventual goal scorer Urie.
Jeremy Dean had the ball deep in Hazen territory when he lofted a cross into the middle of the box.
ST. ALBANSâ€“Ruffie Palin's header in the 31st minute provided the only scoring Wednesday night, as North Country earned itsâ€™ first victory of the season with a 1-0 decision over the Bobwhites.
BFA (1-4-1) gave the Homecoming crowd plenty to cheer for in the opening minutes with a series of great chances, and had a handful of shots at a wide-open net late. Falcon goalkeeper Logan Fortier made a few great stops, but most of St. Albans' chances flew wide of one post or the other.
