JAY â€“ Savannah Alberghini-Giroux's goal nine minutes and fifteen seconds into the third period proved to be the game-winner as the North Country girls earned a trip to the Gutterson Field House to take on Harwood for the Division II state championship on Tuesday evening.

"I think we can step up and play even better," he said. "We were taken aback a bit by Middleburry's speed and their quick transition game."
Despite the speedy Tiger's best efforts, it was the Falcons jumping on the board first, as Whitney Bernier fed Crystal Moss with a perfect pass in front of the net 6:49 into the contest.
