Essex Stings Falcons in Second Half to Earn 53-34 Win

February 6, 2013

NEWPORT–The North Country girl’s basketball team trailed by just two points at the half to the Essex Hornets, but the visitors were able to pull away in the third quarter to defeat the Falcons 53-34 on Tuesday evening.
"I think we want to leave remembering how we played in that first half," said NCU coach Christiane Brown. "We came out playing very strong, we were disciplined, but we still need to work on getting back defensively to limit those easy buckets."
Even with limited minutes in the second half, Desiree Coffin still led 4-8 North Country in scoring with 12 points.
