NEWPORT–The North Country girls soccer team was in action on Friday afternoon, as they played host to the Burlington Seahorses.
The Falcons had their chances, but in the end could not find the back of the net as they fell by the score of 3-0 to drop to 3-1-1 on the season.
"This is the level that we play at, the Metro, and we know that we have to play up to that level," said NCU coach Jose Batista. "I think having a week off didn't help us, I don't care what anybody says, that game would have helped us, but we didn't have it and it was nobody's fault."
