MANCHESTER-Although they did not get the win, the Falcons' boys basketball team gave a fine performance in their play-down loss to Burr and Burton Academy on Tuesday.
"The boys played well, but their shots didn't fall," said NCU coach Ed Duncan, who wraps up his first year behind the bench with a 7-14 record. "I wish our two seniors the best of luck moving forward, and I would like to thank all of the parents and our fans."
B&B got out to the fast start, posting a ten-spot on the board before the Falcons got their first basket.
North Country would get their scoring going, but at the break they trailed by 17 at 40-23.
In the third, North Country scored an impressive 23 points, but in the end, undefeated Burr and Burton came away with the win and will advance to the next round of the post season.
It was only fitting that in their final game as members of the North Country basketball team, seniors Tyler Jenne and Rejean Roberge tied for the team lead in scoring with 13 points apiece.
Collin Myrick added 12 points.
North Country was a much improved team this year compared to last, and they will look to keep moving in the right direction when they take to the court late this fall
