Free Kicks, Set Plays Doom Falcons Against St. J

October 1, 2014

NEWPORT–On Wednesday afternoon it was the North Country boys soccer team's turn to take on the St. Johnsbury Hilltoppers, as they hosted the green and white in a matinee match-up.
The Falcons played an inspiring brand of soccer, but a couple of miscues that led to free kicks would be their undoing, as they fell by the score of 3-2.
"We had some lapses in our thinking and they made it count," said NC coach James McKenny. "They took advantage of the set plays and the free kicks, and it is a matter of minutes that make the difference in these games."

Wright, Davis Strike in Second to Send Falcons Past Hilltoppers

October 1, 2014

NEWPORT–After a slow paced first half that saw little offensive action, the North Country Falcons popped in two goals in the second to pick up a 2-0 win over the St. Johnsbury Hilltoppers under the lights on Veteran's Field.
"We knew that first goal was going to be it," said NC coach Jose Batista. "If they would have scored first who knows, it might have been two to nothing for them, but we got and we were able to score second goal by Devinnie. It was a good team effort and it was a good win."

Falcon Boys and Girls Come Away With Team Wins in Stowe

October 1, 2014

STOWE-What a day at the races for North Country cross country today.
The XC team was down at Stowe for a meet against Stowe, Lamoille, Lake Region, and Hazen.
The day prior to the meet, the race director/coach of Stowe sent an email and within the email she told me the course records for the boys and girls on this course.
They were both ironically set in 2010 (16:51 by Josef Bourgeois NCUHS and 20:21 by Jamie Thomas, Harwood) under similar conditions to today’s race – high 50s/low 60s and overcast.
Would the 2014 Falcons be able to set new records?
