BURLINGTON–The third seeded North Country Falcons made just their second appearance at the Patrick Gym on Wednesday night when took on the second seeded CVU Redhawks with the winner getting a chance to take on St. Johnsbury Academy for the Division I Championship.
The last time the Falcons were in a semifinal game was in 1996 against Essex, a game they lost 61-52.
Unfortunately for the Falcon faithful who braved the dicey weather conditions and made the trek west this year’s outcome would be the same, as CVU got out to a hot start in the first quarter and never looked back, winning the game 49-29 to advance to Sunday’s Championship Game.
