Posted

PITTSFIELD — The Lee girls basketball team battled out of an early hole to post a 41-37 win over Taconic on the road Wednesday.

Taconic led 16-9 after a quarter and 22-16 at halftime, but Lee was able to turn things around in the third with a 10-5 frame, and a 15-10 frame in the fourth sent the game to the Wildcats.

Karli Retzel finished with 10 points for Lee and shared the game-high total with Taconic's Maddy Quinto.

"[Lee] crushed it on the boards," Taconic coach Matt Mickle said. "They probably had 11 offensive rebounds in the fourth quarter alone. It seemed like they were getting second shot after second shot."

The win moves Lee to 5-5 while Taconic falls to 2-7.
