January 19, 2014

CRAFTSBURY-I could try and spin everybody a yarn about how this game was a competitive battle between two squads looking to pick up a notch in the win column, but I am not going to.
Instead I will tell it like it is; this game was an out and out blow out win for the Lady Chargers of Craftsbury, as they defeated the Cabot Huskies 64-22 on Thursday evening.

Weekend Round-up: Paul Nets Winner, Duncan Goes Off, More

BOYS HOCKEY
No. Country 5, Rutland 4 OT
RUTLAND–Ryan Paul, on a pass from Nate Marsh, scored his second goal of the game at the 1:05 marker of overtime to give the North Country Falcons the win over the Rutland Raiders on Saturday evening.
While the win was nice, the Falcons showed the effects of having a ten day break in between games, much to the chagrin of head coach Ryan Jacobs.
"We took too may penalties, and although the penalty killers did a good job, overall we were a little rusty," Jacobs said.

Opinion Piece: Can the Original Six Do it?

January 11, 2014

I think the picture says it all. If you are a fan of the North Country girl's hockey program, you must be asking, can this crew do what they were expected to in the Metro?
Well...
It is up to them. If all of the pieces slide together in the correct order, then I say yes.
If not, then just remember the Falcons, because without any more players, they will not exist anymore.
Go see your favorite players in Northfield or MMU.
Maybe the move to the Metro was not the best of decisions.
You Decide.
