NCUHS Falcon Fortitude Prevails, 20-18

October 9, 2011

BELLOW FALLS–It’s nice to be able to roll along unimpeded during your regular season. The North Country Falcons have for the most part enjoyed that. Most coaches will also tell you learn more from a loss or a stern test than you do winning.
That was the case Saturday as the Falcons got themselves out of a contest that they very well could have loss. NCU came up big with a late game defensive stand and a big play offense as they got by a good Bellows Falls Terrier team 20-18.

Spartan Defeat Crusaders 5-0

October 7, 2011

NEWPORT– A strong second half surge by the Winooski Spartans led to 5-0 loss for the UCA Crusader girls on Friday.
Coming into the start of last week, UCA had played only three games this season: by 6:00 Friday evening they had played six, and might have been on their last legs coming into the contest.
The first half was an even affair with both teams getting chances, but first halves have not really been the forte of UCA in 2011, as more times than not they have found themselves down early and having to play from behind.

Falcons Make it Three Shut-outs in Row, Defeat U-32 3-0

October 7, 2011

EAST MONTPELIER– The North Country girls soccer team made it three straight shut-outs in a row on Friday, defeating U-32 while playing on the Raiders' varsity football field.
"The field was in terrible condition, very muddy and really torn up," said Coach Alexander, "But the girls did an excellent job keeping the ball out of the trampled middle and pushing the ball outside.
"This is probably our best overall effort this year. We won all the 50/50 balls and we also took some clean fouls. You have to be able to take those kinds of fouls, it is what you need to do."

IROC Pool Opens

October 6, 2011

DERBY– The main pool at IROC is back. It’s cold, but it’s open. And there could be no better group to test it out than the IROCKET Swim Team which started its season tonight doing laps in the 66 degree water. For some like Eric Gauvin, Eli McFarlane, and Adam Lodewik, 66 degrees was no different than what they took on during the 6 mile open water swim this summer at Kingdom Swim. For others, it was “Nothing but Chilly.”
