Falcons Give Forth a Solid Showing, But Hilltoppers’ Strong Shooting Gives St. J the 58-45 Win

You have to give it to the North Country boys basketball team.
The team has yet to win a game this season, but each time they take to the hardwood they give it their best shot and continue to plug away despite their record.
Other teams would have folded and started to phone it in, but not this group of young men.
On Tuesday night they were once again matched up with one of the Metro’s top teams, as the St. Johnsbury Hilltoppers paid a visit to Newport.
North Country would give them all they could handle, as the game was tied roughly mid-way through the third quarter, but St. Johnsbury went on a run late in the quarter to gain that all important separation and would go on to grab a 58-45 win.
