ORLEANSâ€“Tyrah Urie had three goals and Tori Adams had the other as Lake Region (10-2) cruised to the 4-0 win over Winooski (2-9) on Tuesday afternoon.
While the win was nice, Ranger coach Brad Urie sees a trend forming with his team that has him concerned.
"We play poorly in the first half and then play pretty well in the second," said Urie. "If you look at our scoring, that is what we do. I don't know why we stay in such a funk, but hopefully we fix that before the end of the year."
Much like Urie said, the girls in white got off to a slow start against the Spartans.
DERBY â€“ The new Kingdom Dog Park in Derby is now open. A grand opening celebration was held Saturday.

The Derby Dog Park Committee and many people from all over voted for Derby to win the Pet Safe dog park contest. Derby prevailed in the second round and won $25,000.

NEWPORT, VT - Thinking about donating some of your time to help others, but not sure where? Why not consider the American Red Cross?
The Red Cross needs volunteers to be part of the disaster response team in the Northeast Kingdom. The response team typically responds to fires and floods, bringing food and drinks to the firefighters and helping the victims with shelter, clothes and food.Â
The Red Cross loses 30 to 35 percent of volunteers annually due to personal, conflicting commitments.

DERBY â€“ For 40 years, area residents flocked to Paulâ€™s Sugar House dance hall to shake their booty. Yesterday, all those dedicated fans paid tribute to what has become a local institution.
Paul and Rhina Letourneau opened the dance hall in 1972. The hall was a dream of Rhina but she passed away in 1979. Paul, with the help of family members, kept his wifeâ€™s dream alive. Paul's son Leo is pleased the dream continues. He said his father loves the business and spends a lot of time there.
