NEWPORT-North Country softball fought until the final play Saturday afternoon as they hosted and lost to a strong team from St. Johnsbury Academy.
The first inning was a rather dry one. Taylor Blake took the circle for NCU, finding the zone as the guests managed some weak contact. Maddie Mosher fielded the first hit and hurled the ball to first for the initial out. She fielded the second as well, flipping the ball to second to get one more on a force. St. Jâ€™s Margret Fogarty hit a far foul ball to right that would be caught by Brittany Verge for three.
