JAYâ€“With temperatures in the negative teens, and a wind chill factor that made it feel another fifteen degrees colder, family, friends and fans alike braved the conditions to come out and watch the North Country boys hockey team play a very balanced, competitive and clean game as they defeated Colchester 4-3 on Wednesday evening.
"This was a great rebound for us," said coach Andrew Roy. "The guys played smart and probably blocked more shots than in the other nine games combined.
"And when you are seeing that, youâ€™re seeing guys who are playing for each other, so that was pretty awesome to see."
Chris Bronson had thirty-five saves for North Country, who improves to 8-2, while Matt McBride had nineteen for 5-3-2 Colchester.
Next up, another doubleheader at the Ice Haus when the boys will once again back-end the action, taking on Stowe at 1:00 this Saturday.
