ENOSBURG FALLS-Utilizing late-game heroics from seniors Alex Beauregard and Josh Thibault, Lake Region opened up the 2013 campaign with a 2-1 overtime victory over Enosburg in high school boys soccer Wednesday.
Beauregard tallied in the fourth minute of overtime, that goal coming just six minutes after Thibault bested the opposing goal keeper in the 78th minute of regulation to force extra play.
MONTPELIERâ€“North Countryâ€™s field hockey team got goals from Morgan Greene and Brittney Royer as they came away with a 2-2 tie in their season opener.
The game would go into 7 on 7 overtime, which the Falcons controlled, but North Country just couldn't cash in.
"We dominated, but we just could not get it in," said NCU coach Chantelle Bouchard. "It was a pretty amazing game and the girls are so pumped up."
North Country netminder Myrriah Gonyaw had three saves in the tie.
The Falcons will host St. Johnsbury on Friday for their home opener.
