Local Games Postponed Due to Nasty Weather

ORLEANS-Wednesday’s girls soccer game between Lake Region and Hazen was postponed due to the storm that eventually hit the area.With just about 11 minutes of soccer in the books and the score standing at 0-0, a rumbling of thunder caused play to be halted and for players to move into the school.After the initial thunder, lightning started to strike, and after to close to an hour into the delay, the game was called. No make-up date has been announced yet.The soccer match between the Craftsbury and Concord girls was also postponed.One game that did manage to determine a winner was the North Country girls soccer contest.The Falcon girls paid a visit to MVU, where they lost 1-0 in a rain-shortened contest.The Thunderbirds popped one in with 12 minutes left to play in the first half on their only real scoring chance of the game.The Falcons out-shot MVU 10-5, but could not find the back of the net.“This the third straight game we have not scored a goal in regulation,” said coach Peter Alexander. “I do not know if the girls just can’t get up for the game or what, but we were just flat.”The upcoming schedule for these three teams looks like this:North Country will host Peoples today at 4:30, Craftsbury travels to Cabot, also on Friday, and Lake Region hosts Lamoille on Saturday at 11:00.
