Smith Academy 5, Lee 1
HATFIELD -- Nick Pow's goal with 5:30 left in the first half cut 12th-seeded Lee's deficit to 3-1 at halftime.
Had the Wildcats gotten an early goal in the second half, this could have been a different contest. But No. 5 Smith Academy scored twice in the final 16 minutes to eliminate the Wildcats from the Division IV tournament.

He dictates our offense along with Nick Pow," Lee coach Frank Murphy said. "With the guys we had, we didn't expect to make the tournament. We came together as a team, but with 12 players on the team its hard to keep the momentum and intensity."
