SWANTON - The MVU girls’ varsity basketball team started the season hot, with a 4 and 1 record going into Wednesday’s game against the North Country Falcons. However, the Falcons came out on top winning by a score of 44 - 29.

MVU went down early in the first quarter of the game, and despite a valiant effort, this would be a deficit that they would compete against the rest of the game. Abigail Paquette, Sierra Reynolds, McKenzie Vincent, and Danielle Totten all scored baskets for the Thunderbird in the first half. However, at the end of the first, the Falcons were up 19 -7.

Strong defense by both sides kept the score close throughout the second quarter. Totten and Paquette scored the only points for the Thunderbirds, and at the end of two, it was MVU 13, North Country 26.

Coming out of halftime, MVU battled more tough defense from the Falcons. Molly Medor and Paquette scored baskets for MVU in the third. However, good defense by MVU kept them in the game.

Going into the fourth and final quarter, the Falcons lead the Thunderbirds 35-17. Missisquoi would prove they would have more fight in them, however, scoring an additional 12 points in the quarter. Destinee Pigeon, Alex Bourdeau, Medor, Vincent, and Paquette all contributed points for MVU in the fourth

The MVU Thunderbirds (4-2) look to improve their record on Saturday when they travel to take on the Middlebury Tigers (3-3).
