PITTSFIELD -- Taconic had gotten the better of crosstown rival Pittsfield twice in preseason scrimmages. On Wednesday night, the Generals turned that around.

"We had an idea what was going to come at us," Pittsfield coach Andrew Antil said. ‘We knew we would have to fight hard for this one. This is a big win for us."
The goal that provided the margin of victory came at 47:52. The Braves were clearing the ball out of their end when Pittsfield's Shane Tierney stopped them. He played the ball on the diagonal to Miranda, who settled the ball and fired a shot past Taconic goalkeeper Kevin Squires.
