The North Country saw some close soccer this week with several competitive games in both boys and girls play. The Minerva-Newcomb Lady Mountaineer, however, added another win after their first in several years earlier this month. Not close at all, they hammered Crown point 9-0 on Oct. 3. The Lady Jags are no longer perfect after their loss to Greenwich on Sept. 28 at the Dome of the Adirondack Sports Complex.
