We had some goals that we wanted to accomplish and we accomplished most of them," Brown said. The Falcons were without MacKenzie Caswell who sustained an injury during the team's Penguin Plunge appearance, which hurt because she had been leading the team in scoring in recent games.Morgan Greene put the Falcons out front at 2-0, but from there it was all CVU as they racked up a 28 point lead at 31-3 at the half before eventually winning the contest."If I had to give a player of the game award for our girls I would have to say it would go to Kelsea Cutting," said Brown. "She created turnovers, made some steals and it is nice to see her end her career on a positive note."Nicole Therrien and Abbie Santaw tied for the team lead with three points in the contest.North Country finishes the year with a 4-17 record, and will look to improve on those number when they hit the court in November.
