Falcons Tie Lyndon 1-1 in Darkness Shortened Game

LYNDON– A late official and ensuing darkness combined to cheat the North Country Field hockey team out of a chance at win number two on Friday.“We could have had the game,” said Coach Bouchard, “We dominated the second half.”With only one official at the field for the start of the game the J/V teams got the chance at an early start time, delaying the start of the varsity match.When the game finally got under way, Molly Manning put North Country ahead just 3 minutes into the contest.Tasha Seymor tied the game for Lyndon on a penalty stroke with just two minutes left to play in the game.After fifteen minutes of play in the second, the refs called the game on an account of darkness, leaving the teams knotted at one.Now, like everyone else heading to the post-season, the Falcons await the results of the pairings to find out where they will be heading to start the play-offs.
