BELLOWS FALLSâ€“ In the biggest surprise of the weekend, the seventh ranked North Country field hockey team knocked off number two Bellows Falls (11-2) 1-0.
"We called a time out with five minutes left and I told them that we didn't drive all of this way for nothing, that we were not leaving without a win, and we got it," said a joyous coach Chantelle Bouchard.
Brittany Fortier scored with 1:55 left to play in regulation to give her team the win.
The goal came after a dash-mark hit, which Brittany Verge put into the circle.
Adrianna Fournier found Fortier amidst the confusion, and Brittany banged it home for the lead.
It was the Falconsâ€™ fourth shot of the game, and marked just the second opponent of the year to score on Bellows Falls.
Goaltender Danielle Gabucci had 20 saves in the shut-out victory.
The win earns the team a trip to UVM on Wednesday to take on MVU (11-3-1) at 3:30 in the semi-finals.
However, with the impending weather that is supposed to hit Vermont this week, that time is highly susceptible to change.
