Tuesday May 8, 2012

DALTON -- Wahconah had a two-goal lead on unbeaten Lee with 16 minutes to go but the Warriors couldn't stop Megan Gaul.

Gaul scored three unanswered goals in the final 12 minutes, all on free position shots, to rally Lee to the 12-11 victory.

Gaul finished with eight goals and an assist. Wahconah was led by four goals from Laine Chiaretta, including the Warriors' final goal of the game with 16:35 left.

"We hit the post on free positions three times and we just couldn't put it in," said Wahco nah coach Kathy Budaj. "Megan is definitely the go-to girl. She drew the fouls from us. We had our opportunities; we just hit the post way too many times."

Makayla Weigel made 13 saves for the Warriors while Hanna Hunter stopped seven shots.
