Lenox edges Taconic
Berkshire Eagle Staff
LENOX -- Jen Delasco’s strike in the 50th minute propelled Lenox to a narrow 1-0 win over Taconic on Monday.
Delasco scored just about a minute after she had a similar shot just outside the box. The second time around she got a little more space and made the Braves pay.
"Overall the play was pretty even," said Millionaires coach Matt Cote. "It was a good team we played. We played a better second half than we did a first half. Overall, I’m real pleased."
Kathy Prescott made six saves to earn the shutout.

LEE -- It was a rough day for the Lee girls soccer team.
The Wildcats missed on a penalty kick, had two direct kicks off the posts and forced Drury goalkeeper Ali Tatro to make 18 saves.
While the Wildcats couldn’t find the net, Drury’s Cori Ghidotti did in a 1-0 win for the Blue Devils Monday morning.
"I thought we had more control" of the game, said Lee coach Lauren Finnegan. "We just couldn’t find the net today -- but not for a lack of trying."
Ghidotti’s goal came in the 29th minute as she deflected a bouncing ball past Wildcat goalie Sara Middleton.
