Burlington Tops North Country on Senior Night

NEWPORT–North Country and Burlington went at it tooth and nail for the first one and a half quarters of the Falcons game on Tuesday night before the Seahorses' found that extra gear and pulled away for the 46-33 win."Momentum in the game of basketball is everything," said NCU coach Christiane Brown. "We came out to play, but again, momentum is big, and we need to put four quarters together and not let down, even if something good goes for them, because that is how basketball works."The Falcons now stand at 6-13 and will close out the regular season this Friday when they travel to Essex to take on the Hornets at 6:30.For the full story, see the Express on Thursday 2-28-13!
