PITTSFIELD -- Carly Robinson had a goal and an assist and Allie Hunt made five saves in net as Pittsfield defeated Taconic 4-1 in a girls soccer game at BCC Field to improve to 8-1 on the year.

"It was a close game for a while," said Taconic coach John Flynn. "We actually played better in the second half than in the first, although we were outscored. It was a good match."

The Generals took a 1-0 lead at halftime on an unassisted goal by Robinson about 15 minutes into the game.

CHESHIRE -- A Megan Rodowicz goal midway through the second half was the difference in this contest.

Lenox 6, Lee 2

LEE -- Freshman Jackie Hathaway recorded a hat trick for the Millionaires in this win. Hathaway scored all her goals in the second half.

"In no way was the final score indicative of the way the game went," said Lee coach Lauren Finnegan. "We had just as many chances in the game: Corner kicks, free kicks, shots in the box. But their shots went in and ours didn’t. That’s soccer, but it was frustrating."
