NORTH ADAMS -- Lucy Barrett scored 23 points to lead Mount Greylock's girls basketball team to a 44-29 win over McCann Tech on Monday night.

"They're aggressive on defense and Barrett's good," said Hornet coach Mike Dowling. "She got 23 and the rest of the team got, what, [21] points? We had a lot of first game jitters."

Alanza Quinones scored six for the Hornets.

Sabis girls 45, Lee 32

SPRINGFIELD -- The Wildcats got off to a horrific start in their opener, falling behind 16-2 after a quarter. Lee outscored the home side the rest of the game, but dug itself too deep a hole to begin with.

"We were slow out of the gate," said Lee assistant coach Jim Feeley. "They pressured us a little, but we just didn't hit our shots."

Alyssa Kelly's 13 points led all scorers.

Wahconah 41, Frontier 22

SOUTH DEERFIELD -- Maddie Sprague led the way with 15 points, scoring 11 of those from the free-throw line, for the Warriors.

"We were able to get the ball to the paint," Wahconah coach June Blake said. "She [Sprague] made some tough moves to the basket. We capitalized [at the free throw line]."

Wahconah (1-1) really limited Frontier's offense in the first (three points) and third (two points) quarters. However, the Warriors had to snap out of their own offensive funk after a five-point first quarter.

"Both teams got off to slow starts ... but our defense turned it up," Blake said. "We limited their opportunities and were able to capitalize on ours in the second half."

Katie Dumas added eight points for Wahconah.

South Hadley 56, Taconic 41

SOUTH HADLEY -- The home team turned a big second quarter into a win on Monday.

"They really hurt us from the perimeter," said Braves coach Matt Mickle. "Every time they got open, they'd hit the shot. Plus, we ran out of gas a little in the fourth quarter."

Angela O'Neil's 19 points led the Braves.

Sabis boys 77, Lee 66

LEE -- The Wildcats did a good job sealing down the inside game of Sabis, but the visitors' peimeter shooting hurt Lee.

"They have some size, but we contained their big guys," said Lee coach Dan Korte. "But then they started kicking it out. Sabis hit seven threes, which was tough."

Heamon Williams had 22 points for Lee, while Nelson Zayas led everyone with 28 for Sabis.

Christian Brothers Acad. (N.Y.) 2, Taconic 1

TROY, N.Y. -- The Braves traveled to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for their opener, and were held to one goal by the Brothers.

Brandon Peaslee scored Taconic's only goal in the third period. Goalie Brendan Leary made 20 saves for the Braves, who played well after adjusting to the speed of the game, according to coach Stephen Terpak.

"The overall effort of our players was fantastic, but the first and second halves of the game were like the flip of a coin," Stephen Terpak said. "We just couldn't flash that red light on. We've got to find the touch to get it by the goalie."

The bigger ice surface at RPI didn't hurt the Braves, according to their coach. They will have to play a more compact style Wednesday, though, in their Berkshire County opener against Wahconah.

"The bigger surface plays into our style of play," Terpak said. "We're going to come with a different game plan at the Boys Club, no question about it. But that's a coach's job."

Austin Kopp and Rob West scored for CBA.
