NEWPORT — The North Country Union High School Falcons lost to the Bellows Free Academy St. Albans Comets Thursday, 50-40. Though the Falcons trailed the Comets for most of the game, they took a hard-nosed approach to the game that rattled the Comets early.
“Any time you come to Newport to play these scrappy girls, there’s always going to be a battle,” Comets Coach Richard Berthiaume said after the game. “Tonight was no different. Nothing was easy for us tonight. They fought us the whole way.”
Comets sophomore guard Hannah Earl, who led all scorers with 21 points, heated up early. She hit a wide open jumper from the left perimeter in the opening moments of the game.
