North Country scored first, but BFA’s Lilly Laughlin answered with a goal in the 16th minute of the first half. Chelsea Raymond had the assist.

Meghan Connor scored BFA’s second goal in the 79th minute of play on a penalty kick.

Maren McGinn, goalkeeper for the Comets, had 14 saves.

 BFA is 1-2-0 on the season after today’s loss. The Comets earned a win against in-county rival MVU and lost to MMU in the first game of the season. BFA will face Burlington under the lights at Collins Perley on Tuesday, September 17th at 7 pm.
