PITTSFIELD — The last time the Taconic girls basketball team won a game, the members were probably still shopping for Christmas gifts.

The Green and Gold’s two-game losing streak came to an end Monday night, thanks to a 20-point night from Ahliya Phillips as Taconic held off Longmeadow 48-43.

The Taconic defense held the Lancers to two points in the fourth quarter, outscoring the visitors 11-2 to come from behind and get the win. Phillips and Faith Cross, who had 12 points in the game, had five and four points respectively in the fourth quarter.

With the win, Taconic improves to 3-2.

Swimming

Taconic boys 47, New Lebanon/Berlin 45

NEW LEBANON, N.Y. — Late wins by Taconic swimmers Ben Bradway and Scott Langlois gve the Green and Gold boys team enough of a cushion to hold off the New Lebanon/Berlin co-op.

Taconic had cut the home team’s lead to two points with a win in the 200-meter free relay. Ben and Jonathan Bradway came back with a 1-2 finish in the 100 backstroke and Langlois won in the 100 breaststroke, giving Taconic a six-point lead.

While the co-op finished first in the 400 free relay, Taconic finishing second gave the Green and Gold the victory. Taconic’s Stevie Zuccalo scored double individual wins, taking the 50 and 100 freestyle races.

New Lebanon/Berlin is a co-ed, co-op, so the Taconic girls competed against themselves.
